>>Adam Morrison - What Could Have Been
Former Gonzaga Bulldog Adam Morrison was the top scorer in the country. Beating out J. J. Redick. He was the co-player of the year with Duke's Redick. I guess this is why I've always tied them together and shake my head with every Redick highlight I see as he still works in the league while Morrison is long gone after several failed attempts to get back in and widely considered one of the top #1 draft pick busts. That hurts me because I like the guy. So I thought of Adam yesterday as Redick was involved in a trade sending him to Lob City with a nice contract. The Los Angeles Clippers, Phoenix Suns and Milwaukee Bucks have reportedly agreed to a three-team trade that would send sharpshooters J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley to Los Angeles and promising young point guard Eric Bledsoe to the Suns along with veteran forward Caron Butler. According to many reports, Redick -- an unrestricted free agent -- will receive a four-year, $27 million
contract as part of a sign-and-trade transaction, with Milwaukee landing a pair of future second-round draft picks in exchange for the shooting guard.
Game time temp was 107 degrees. And nearly three-hours after the first pitch, Spokane out slugged Tri City to a 6-4 win. Final game if the series is tonight. Spokane returns home tomorrow night.

Kendrys Morales hit two homers and drove in six as the Mariners cruised to a 9-2 win over the Rangers in Texas. Raul Ibanez also went deep for Seattle, which had dropped four out of five. Joe Saunders tossed six-and-two-thirds innings of two-run ball, with one of the runs coming unearned.
>>M's Continue Series In Texas
The Mariners continue their three-game series in Texas this evening. Felix Hernandez takes the mound for Seattle while the Rangers counter with Derek Holland. The Mariners had lost four out of five prior to last night's victory in the series opener. First pitch is set for 5:05.
>>Coyotes Set To Stay In AZ
The Glendale City Council has passed the lease agreement with Renaissance Sports and Entertainment group, which will keep the Phoenix Coyotes in Jobing.com Arena for the next 15-years. The council voted 4-3 to pass the agreement, which does have an opt-out clause if RSE loses 50-million-dollars. Seattle had been rumored to be a possible relocation site for the Coyotes if they were to move.
I love baseball. I love stats. I love good people. Here's a story with all three.The first no-hitter of the season came from the same pitcher that had the last one of 2012 - Cincinnati Reds right-hander Homer Bailey. Bailey carried a perfect game into the seventh inning until walking Gregor Blanco in the Reds' 3-0 win over the San Francisco Giants at Great American Ball Park. That was San Francisco's only base runner of the night. This is the 16th no-hitter in the history of the franchise and the second one thrown by Bailey in a 20-start span, which includes a playoff game against the Giants last year. He tossed one on Sept. 28, 2012 at Pittsburgh. The 27-year-old tied a team record with his two no-hitters, joining Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer. Bailey (5-6), who threw 74 of his 109 pitches for strikes, added nine strikeouts to snap a personal 0-2 stretch over three starts. He joined Hall of Fame company in pitching the final no-hitter of a season and the first of the ensuing one. Nolan Ryan had the last no-hitter of 1974 and the first of 1975 pitching for the Angels. Warren Spahn accomplished a similar feat for the Milwaukee Braves
