Seager, Hernandez push M's to another win

Bronx - The Mariners rode seven strong innings from their ace, and Kyle Seager's bat continues to heat up as he clubbed two home runs to give the Mariners a 7-3 win on Saturday. The Yankees made it close in the seventh after a couple misplayed grounders that should've been double plays extended the inning. Brian McCann laced a single that cut it to 6-3, but Chris Iannetta came right back in the top of the eighth, and hit a solo shot that would result in the final score. Seager ended up with two other hits going 4-5 on the day, and pushing his average back into respectability after a slow start the first two weeks. The Mariners will be going for the series sweep tomorrow sending Hisashi Iwakuma (1-1, 3.75 ERA) to the mound to face former Mariner Michael Pineda (1-1, 7.71 ERA).

Mariners power past Yankees in series opener


Bronx - The Seattle Mariners opened their road trip with a win Friday night, as they took advantage of the hitter friendly confines of Yankee stadium to hit two short home runs to right and left field, that carried them to a 6-3 win. The Mariners were also able to take advantage of seven walks to make sure there were runners on base for their jacks. The Yankees, also hit two homers but they were only solo shots that did little damage. The big blow came in the eighth after the Mariners had nursed a 3-2 lead most of the night, Cano singled, and Seager took his third walk of the night to bring up Franklin Gutierrez, who cranked a three run jack that gave the M's the distance they needed. The two teams come back here tomorrow afternoon, but morning time in Seattle as the first pitch will be at 10:05am PST. It will be Felix Hernandez (1-1, 4.73 ERA) going up against Yankee ace Masahiro Tanaka (0-1 3.97 ERA).

12:05 AM - April 16, 2016. Written by thegna4

LOS ANGELES - The season opener was a thriller and a roller coaster ride for the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers led 24-23 after a tight first quarter, but the San Antonio Spurs outscored Los Angeles by 17 in the second quarter to take a 16 point lead into the break. The Spurs' lead got as high as 20 points in the third quarter, and it looked like the Lakers were all but finished. A strong finish of the third quarter, led by Jeff Teague, cut the deficit to 13 going into the fourth quarter. That's when MVP candidate D'Angelo Russell showed up. Russell had a quiet first three quarters, but he took over the fourth. Russell hit back-to-back threes midway through the fourth to cut the lead from 9 all the way down to 3. From there it was back-and-forth until the Lakers finally broke through and took the lead for good with just under 2 minutes left. The Spurs went to LaMarcus Aldridge down the stretch, and Julius Randle's defense on him in the final 3 minutes was a major reason the Lakers came away with a win tonight. Even though the Lakers showed that it would take some time to work in the new pieces to the team, they also showed just how good this team can be when everything comes together.

Coming into the season, here's how the Los Angeles Lakers depth chart looks. In terms of ratings, everyone up through the 7th man Otto Porter is at least an 80 OVR, with D'Angelo Russell the highest rated player at 90 OVR. The main concern this season will be keeping everyone happy. Usually having high rated players on your bench, like the Lakers do with Jeff Teague and Otto Porter, they tend to complain quite a bit.

ALL-STAR BREAK UPDATE

The Los Angeles Lakers got out to a solid start this season, jumping out to a record of 22-15, good for 4th place in the Western Conference. However, a stretch in late January continuing into the All-Star break brought them back to .500 with a record of 27-27. Coming into the All-Star break, the Lakers have lost 7 of their last 9 games, dropping them back to 7th in the conference. In the middle of that slide, center Hassan Whiteside became disgruntled with management that D'Angelo Russell was the star of the team and wanted to be traded. The coaches and general manager were able to talk Whiteside out of it, however, and there haven't been any problems since.

LOS ANGELES - In game one of the 2016-17 NBA season, the Los Angeles Lakers showed some of the potential that has people in LA excited about this team. In a game that flashed their two-way potential as an all-around basketball team, the Lakers beat the Houston Rockets 104-78. The defense struggled in the first quarter, giving up 27 points, but they responded by giving up just 51 points in the remaining 3 quarters. They also managed to show great hustle on the defensive end, totaling 8 steals and a remarkable 13 blocks in the game. The Lakers also started hot, scoring 28 points in the first quarter, but they continued it throughout the game en route to a 104 point performance.

D'Angelo Russell was the star of the show in this one. He came out of the gates looking to get his teammates involved, and eventually got himself going as well. Russell led the Lakers in both points (28) and assists (16), and he was tied for the team lead in rebounds (6). The other star tonight was Hassan Whiteside. Whiteside struggled on the boards for his standards, but he finished the night with 27 points, 6 rebounds, and his biggest stat of the night, 6 blocks. The newest Laker looks as though he's going to be a big help to a defense that struggled mightily last season.
