⚾️Mariners: The Mariners won two of three games against the Minnesota Twins, including yesterday’s 8–6 thriller. The M’s fell behind 6–0, but veteran third baseman Kyle Seager helped the team come roaring back with two homers, driving in four runs total. We definitely don’t think he’s overpaid.

  • The 5-4 M’s will look to keep the good times rolling against the Baltimore Orioles today at 7:05 p.m. ET/4:05 p.m. PT.

⚽️OL Reign: The aforementioned Megan Rapinoe delivered for the USWNT, and several other Reign players shone in national team action. Quinn kicked things off on Friday with a sweet assist in Canada’s 3–0 victory over Jess Fishlock’s Welsh side.

Yuka Nicole Momiki celebrated her birthday week in style, scoring goals in each of Japan’s wins over Paraguay and Panama. Gosh, we can’t wait ’til they’re all back in Cheney Stadium — probably not for the first Challenge Cup match on Friday, but soon.
