Mariners over Tampa Bay 7-4.

It was nearly pandemonium in the Mariners dugout Tuesday night, yet no double back-to-back home run feats and no balls helped over the wall by the defense. But that doesn’t mean Tom Murphy and Kyle Seager didn’t still have a good time.

“Those guys are really locked in right now,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said, “and it’s just fun to watch.”

In an evolving theme this summer, the duo powered the Mariners’ offense, adding a home run apiece and five RBIs between them as Seattle claimed at least a series win against Tampa Bay with a 7-4 victory at Tropicana Field.

The Mariners, who stretched their win streak to four and moved to 14-4 in their past 18 games at Tropicana Field, were swept by the Rays in a three-game series from Aug. 9-11 at T-Mobile Park.

Seattle will look to return the favor during Wednesday’s matinee finale and wrap up its nine-game road swing on a high note.

The Oregon Ducks aren’t completely pointing toward next week’s college football season-opening game just yet, but they’re also no longer purely in preseason camp mode.

The UO football team returned to the practice field Tuesday, following two days off in the wake of Saturday’s scrimmage. For the first time this month, scout-team players were designated, and they donned dark blue jerseys for periods in which they ran Auburn plays for the sake of the travel squad.

The looming opener against Auburn in Texas means depth charts and rotations need to be finalized in the coming days. 

Nike’s Phil Knight attended practice and addressed the team afterward.

Following a season that saw the Oregon Tech women claim their first National Championship in program history, ninth-year coach Jack Kegg is looking for his Cross Country teams to continue to compete on a national level.
 
The Hustlin’ Owl women have been voted to finish in second place in the Cascade Collegiate Conference, and the men in fourth place, in one of the toughest conferences in the nation. Southern Oregon University sits in the top spot of both the CCC Women’s and Men’s Cross Country Coaches’ Preseason Polls, announced Monday.

On the women’s side, Oregon Tech received three first-place votes, landing them in second place with 86 points. “I am very optimistic that although the women are young, they will compete with the best teams in the nation,” said Kegg.

“We have a very strong group of returners with three of the fastest fifteen women in school history. Faith Widman #6 at 18:11, Hannah Mason #10 at 18:41, and Mallory Ward #14 at 18:49.”
