the Seattle Mariners outscored the Orioles by a total of six runs and twice prevailed in extra innings.
The difference between the two teams, to a large degree, is that Seattle finds a way to win, and the Orioles keep coming up with a variety of ways to lose.
Nelson Cruz homered and drove in three runs, and the Mariners capitalized on two 10th-inning errors in a 4-2 victory Thursday that completed their first four-game sweep at Baltimore in franchise history.
The Mariners improved to 8-0 in extra innings this season. They won in 11 innings on Wednesday, after winning the first two games of the series 5-3 and 3-2.
We won four games, four different ways, manager Scott Servais said with pride. It shows what kind of team we are. Different players on different nights, all pitching in. We are playing pretty good baseball as a team right now. This sweep was a great turnaround for us.
Gordon’s speed and Cruz’s power have proven to be a potent combination for the Mariners. It was certainly too much for Baltimore.
Guys like Gordon put such pressure on you because you know any little bobble, anything, he’s going to take another base, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. A groundball that probably 95 percent of people are out on pretty easily, it’s a base hit. That’s why they’re having a good year and winning some games, because of things like that.
Doncic also cuts his fingernails with a meat cleaver, does barefoot fire-walks in his spare time and killed a bear when he was only three. So, yeah, the guy is tough. The Mavs added NCAA champ Jalen Brunson in the second round, as well as the final pick, Kostas Antetokounmpo, who is hoping to avoid the inevitable nickname, The Greek Meek.
It was strange to see Michael Porter Jr. onstage at the Barclays Center on Thursday, because he somehow managed to walk there on his own and without the help of a personal scooter or a cane, which — according to some teams’ reading of his medical records — should have been physically impossible. A full-body scan of Porter was said to have revealed that he has the joint structure of a young Pinocchio, before he became a real boy.
Despite those profound concerns, Denver took the gamble on Porter that the Sixers (Hinkie would’ve drooled over a guy with so many medical red flags), the Hornets (really?) and Clippers (only months away from dumping gimpy star Blake Griffin) would not take. In the second round, the Nuggets took small forward Jarred Vanderbilt, who only played 19 games at Kentucky because of foot and ankle Cheap Jerseys UK injuries, and also added UCLA center Thomas Welsh, who offered to throw himself down the stairs if Cheap Jerseys Supply it would help him fit in with his fellow draftees.
