Seattle: OL Reign Continue to Add Superstars to Roster

🏀Storm: It was close through three quarters, but the Storm pulled away in the fourth to defeat the Atlanta Dream 95–71 last night. There was no need for her late-game heroics yesterday, but Jewell Loyd — who scored 13 of her 18 points in the first quarter — still has our early vote for MVP.

  • In addition to Loyd’s gem of a game, Sue Bird hit her 900th career 3-pointer, becoming only the third player in WNBA history to reach such a milestone. Count it.

⚾️Mariners: Left fielder Jake Fraley saved the game with this incredible catch in the ninth inning last night to force extra innings. Then the M’s put up five runs in the 11th to beat the Detroit Tigers 9–6. Right fielder Dillon Thomas had a heck of a major league debut, with a leaping grab and his first major league hit. What a game.

  • The M’s will go for the series win (and a .500 record) today at 1:10 p.m. ET/10:10 a.m. PT.

⚽️OL Reign: Are the Reign assembling a super team? After landing three international stars on loan and somehow convincing Rose Lavelle to come home, they signed USWNT defender Alana Cook to a three-year deal on Monday.

Cook, fresh off winning a historic league championship with Paris Saint-Germain, joins the Reign later this month. This team is downright scary.
