>>Seahawks Players Arrive At Camp
So camp begins for more teams in the NFL then just Seattle but the Hawks are all I care about. I took for granted all the years that Seattle had camp in the hot fields of Cheney. It gave those of us in Eastern Washington who get ripped off as tax payers for junk that happens in Seattle, the chance to spend weeks looking at our west side team. Well it's a business afterall and camps are sold out in Renton as expectations are high with the Seahawks players arriving at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center for training camp. Seattle's first practice is this morning at 10:30 a.m. Their first preseason game is August 8th on the road against the Chargers.
>>Indians' Kazmir Shuts Down Mariners In Win
The streak had to come to an end eventually. But what a miserable way to let it go. Scott Kazmir was dominant for eight innings as the Indians' offense put up 10-runs to cruise past the Mariners 10-1 from Safeco Field. Joe Saunders was tagged for six runs on nine hits in just over four innings for the loss. The loss snaps the Mariners season-best eight game win streak.
>>Mariners Host Twins
The Mariners hope to start another winning streak tonight as they kick off a four-game series against the Twins. Seattle is only five games under .500 at 48-and-53. Hisashi Iwakuma takes the hill for the M's opposite Kevin Correia.
>>M's Skipper Wedge Suffers Mild Stroke
Seattle Mariners manger Eric Wedge is out of the hospital after suffering a very mild stroke. The 45-year-old skipper was helped off the field during batting practice before Monday's game after a dizzy spell. Wedge spent two days in the hospital before being released on Wednesday. He's expected to make a full and complete recovery, but will not be in uniform for Seattle's upcoming series against the Twins. Wedge will also skip the team's road trip to Boston and Baltimore. Bench coach Robby Thompson is filling in during Wedge's absence. >>Washington Football Practices Closed To Public
Husy fans, the public will not be able to view Washington Huskies fall practices as they get ready for the season. The construction at the new Husky reason is the main reason. Starting on August 19th partial sections of practice will be open to the media. And if you do root for the team in purple, (Ummm - I don't - all crimson here. Cougs and Pirates!) keep in mind that you can hear all of those Husky football games in Spokane on 590 KQNT.
