Pro Baseball

Former Beaver Baseball great Adley Rutschman made his return to the northwest last night in Seattle as the starting catcher of the Baltimore Orioles.

Rutschman was the number one draft pick in 2019 in the MLB draft after earning All American Honors, and leading the Oregon state to the 2018 NCAA world series title.

The Sherwood High-School graduate signed for $8-million, and three years later he is in  the starting lineup for the Orioles.

Rutschman wasted no time celebrating his homecoming of sorts last night, belting his third home run of the year over the right feild fence with two-out, and nobody on base in the third inning giving the O's a 3 to nothing lead over the Mariners.

He started the night with an RBI single in the opening frame.

Ironically. Rutschman was drafted in the 40th round by Seattle after his senior season at Sherwood High-School.

The Orioles went on to beat the M's, 9-2 of the series is tonight at 7:10.

Bend Elks

The Bend Elks returned home last night, following a week long road trip in Washington, only to go extra innings entertaining the Bellingham Bells.

The Bells came into town leading the north division of the Westcoast League by 3-1/2 games over Kamloops, and the Elks entered the night just 1-game behind idle Corvallis for the south lead.

Bend had a 6-2 lead until the 8th inning when Bellingham plated 4-runs to tie the game. Both teams went scoreless in the 9th.

But, in the top of the 10th, Elijah Hainline belted a 1-out solo home run to give Bellingham a 7-6 lead.

First pitch this evening in the 2nd game at 6:35, and its '2 Dollar Tuesday' with $2-dollar general admission, and hot dogs and beverages.

Bend Trails Corvallis by one and a half games for the division lead. The Knights begin a series with Springfield tonight in Lane County.

Sounders, Timbers Grab Wins Over The Weekend

 

The Sounders and Timbers are grabbing wins in their return to the pitch. Seattle beat Sporting KC 3-0 at Lumen Field. Will Bruin, Jordan Morris and Cristian Roldan each scored in the victory. The Sounders still sit seventh in the Western Conference with 23 points. Meanwhile, Portland beat the Colorado Rapids 3-0 at home. Sebastian Blanco scored on a penalty, while Jaroslaw Niezgoda netted a pair of goals. The Timbers moved up to 11th in the Western Conference with 19 points.

Damian Lillard Attempts To Recruit Durant

Damian Lillard might be recruiting one of the top players in the NBA to the Trail Blazers. The point guard posted a photoshopped photo of him and Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant on his Instagram story over the weekend. Durant reportedly is considering his future options after the Nets and Kyrie Irving are discussing his future with the team. Portland has been busy this offseason and it looks to rebuild the team around Lillard.

Soccer

The Portland Timbers scored a 3-zip shutout M-L-S win at home over Colorado saturday night for only the 4th-win of the season.

Bend Elks

The Bend Elks finished off their week long road trip with a 5-4 win over the Cowlitz Black Bears last night. Bend won five of the seven games on the trip to Yakima and Cowlitz County. The wins elevate the 14-and-7 Elks to within 1-game of the south division lead of the westcoast league behind Corvallis. The Elks are back home tonight to entertain and size up the Bellingham Bells for a 3-game series. The bells lead the north division of the W-C-L with a 15-and-5 record after winning two out of three games in Corvallis against the 5-peat league champion knights.

Bellingham has won 11 of their last 12-games.

First pitch this evening is at 635, and tomorrow is the first '$2 dollar tuesday' promotional night with $2-dollar general admission, and $w-dollar hot dogs and beverages. See more information, and how to buy V-I-P box seats, online at' BENDELKS.com
