>>Adam Morrison Back At GU
I recently ran into Adam Morrison on the golf course and wondered what he may try next. I joined the many that Adam drew into his fan club. From watching him at Mead to leading Gonzaga and of course his attempts in pro ball. I have pictures in my house of the interviews I was able to get with him as a freshman and his Bobcasts jersey hangs in manland. It was disppointing when I thought he began to close down and became less accessible and then of course just could not sustain a pro career. But on the golf course, I saw the old Adam. The guy you could walk right up to. The GU superstar. The kid from Mead. I think many of us were happy to hear yesterday that Morrison is joining the Bulldogs' coaching staff. Morrison is taking classes at Gonzaga and will be a member of the coaching staff next season. Morrison was named a First-Team All-American and the Chevrolet National Player of the Year after leading Gonzaga to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament in 2006.
>>Mariners Winning With Power, Speed and Style.
My tweet last night (@marsonhawk) simply noted how fun these are to watch again. Now if it were not for Houston we would still be in last place. but at least for now, it is fun! Hisashi Iwakuma struck out nine over six innings of four-hit, shutout ball to pace the Mariners to an 8-2 win over the Twins at Safeco Field. Nick Franklin belted a three-run home run for Seattle, which rebounded from Wednesday's loss that ended an eight-game win streak. Dustin Ackley went 3-for-4 with a run and two RBI in the win. The series continues tonight.
>>Seahawks Add Harvin To PUP List
The Seattle Seahawks have placed wide receiver Percy Harvin, defensive ends Chris Clemons and Greg Scruggs, tight end Zach Miller, cornerback Tharold Simon and running back Robert Turbin on the Physically Unable to Perform List. Linebacker Korey Toomer was put on the non-football injury list. Harvin is looking for a second option on his injured hip.
Kyle Castro dominated on the mound, earning him his first win of the season as the Spokane Indians topped the first-place Vancouver Canadians 2-1 in front of 4,660 fans.
Castro easily enjoyed his best outing of the season, striking out five and allowing just one run in five innings. Castro also lowered his ERA down two points. The Indians offense helped Castro out enough for the former 2011 third-round draft pick to earn the win.
Spokane is now 1 - 2 to start the seasons second half.
