*My* Staples Center experience as a Portland Trail Blazers fan

Portland Trail Blazers, Staples Center

NWSB Editor Bryant Knox gives us an exclusive look at what it’s like to witness a Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers game live at the Staples Center in L.A. The game itself couldn’t have been any better. LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard took over and won a close one despite a comeback from Pau Gasol, Xavier Henry and the Lake Show. The Staples experience is full of trash talk and super Lakers fans, but all in all, it’s a good place to visit — especially when Rip City comes away with a win.

LA Dodgers vs. Mariners: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Dodgers vs. Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the interleague series versus the L.A. Dodgers. The Mariners needed just 1 run, and without it this magic night never happens. Kevin Millwood aside, I think this night really goes to the bullpen. Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen combined for 3 innings, 2 walks, 3 Ks and, of course, o hits.

Tonight at Safeco Field in Game 60 for the M’s, Kevin Millwood will take to the mound as the only Mariners pitcher with experience against the Dodgers. The rest of the series could go either way but the M’s will look to pick up as many wins as possible as they try to ascent the standings.

The 24-year old is enjoying a fantastic breakout season, leading the Mariner’s in RBI with 32. Thank goodness Ichiro Suzuki is back?!

Munenori Kawasaki

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the series versus the L.A. Angels. After three quality starts in a row, Jason Vargas finally cracked. The Mariners starter was lackluster, needing 106 pitches to get through 5.2 innings. Brandon League has been putting his horrible month behind him. The Mariners made a great pick in the draft last night, taking catcher Mike Zunino.
