⚽️Soccer: Yesterday’s Cascadia rivalry doubleheader started off with a bang courtesy of Megan Rapinoe, who scored in OL Reign’s 2–1 victory over the league-leading Portland Thorns. Who reigns supreme?
- There were 27,248 fans (an NWSL attendance record!) at Lumen Field — the Reign’s usual home field of Cheney Stadium has a capacity of 6,500. Our hearts are so full.
- Unfortunately, the Sounders couldn’t follow up with a win of their own, falling 2–0 to the Portland Timbers. Next time.
🏀Storm: Are our defending champs...okay? The Storm lost to the Chicago Sky by 32 points yesterday: the worst regular-season home loss in team history. Eek.
- Since returning from the Olympic break, the 18-10 Storm have dropped five of eight, including the last three. Just speculating, but we have to wonder if our squad is .
⚾️Mariners: The Mariners’ plummeted these last few days as they lost the first three games of their series against the Kansas City Royals. At least the M’s avoided a sweep, securing a 4–3 win yesterday, in which third baseman Kyle Seager smashed his career-best of the season. Congrats, Seags.
- Up next? The American League West–leading Houston Astros are in town for a three-game series starting tonight at 10:10 p.m. ET/7:10 p.m. PT.
