🏀Storm: The Storm lost their first road game of the season yesterday, falling 95–92 to the Las Vegas Aces in a hard-fought overtime battle. This matchup between the league’s top two teams featured 11 (!!!) Olympians, but it was the Aces’ first-time Olympian, Chelsea Gray, who delivered the dagger. Boo.

⚾️Mariners: Despite a foreign substance-related ejection, the Mariners beat the Chicago White Sox in the first game of yesterday’s weather-induced doubleheader. Two home runs from center fielder Taylor Trammell and a cheeky bat flip? King.

  • The M’s didn’t fare so well in the second match, falling 7–5, but the three-game series win was already theirs. Sea us rise.

⚽️Soccer: The Sounders are hot, but OL Reign are not. In a rivalry matchup with the Vancouver Whitecaps, Seattle maintained their undefeated season with a 2–2 draw, thanks to midfielder Jimmy Medranda’s equalizer. As for the Reign...the less said about their 3–0 loss to NJ/NY Gotham FC, the better.
