🥎UW: No. 16 UW aims to upset No. 1 Oklahoma in the best-of-three Super Regionals starting tomorrow at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT. Fingers crossed that pitcher Gabbie Plain and shortstop Sis Bates can shut down OU’s hot offense — the Huskies’ three-year Women’s College World Series streak is at stake. Game on.

🏀Storm: You know Sue Bird was mad at herself for throwing the ball away at the end of regulation on Tuesday. So she promptly drilled two 3-pointers in overtime to help the Storm beat the previously undefeated Connecticut Sun 90–87. Champ.

  • Bird should be on the U.S. Olympic roster whenever it’s finalized. Meanwhile, Australia announced their Olympic team yesterday: Storm players Ezi Magbegor and Stephanie Talbot will rep the world’s second-ranked team in Tokyo. Oi oi oi.

⚾️Mariners: Although the Mariners couldn’t complete the sweep in yesterday’s series finale against the American League (AL) West-leading Oakland A’s, two out of three ain’t bad. Hopefully outfielder Mitch Haniger and the M’s grab a win against the Texas Rangers tonight at 10:10 p.m. ET/7:10 p.m. PT.

📺⚽️What to watch: Soccer all Sunday. USWNT star Rose Lavelle is expected to make her OL Reign debut against her old team, the Washington Spirit, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. Then the still-unbeaten Sounders play their last match before the three-week FIFA break, taking on expansion team Austin FC at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT. Alright alright alright.
