THUNDER LOSES AT END


The Las Vegas Outlaws beat the Portland Thunder, 48-46, on a one-yard touchdown run by quarterback Dennis Havrilla as time expired at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Havrilla completed 21-of-34 passes for 214 yards and four touchdowns with two interceptions to go along with a pair of rushing scores on the day for the Outlaws (5-8).

For the Thunder (3-10), fullback John Martinez set a new single-game franchise record with four rushing scores, while quarterback Kyle Rowley passed for 220 yards and three touchdowns on the day.

It appeared the Thunder had sealed a victory with less than a minute remaining following an interception by former Outlaws defensive back Dwight McLean. With 49 seconds to play, Martinez was stripped of the ball, resulting in a turnover and setting up the Outlaws’ game-winning drive.

Thunder linebacker Dexter Davis led Portland with two sacks, while Marquis Jackson and KC Obi combined for another. Thunder defensive backs De’Mon Glanton and Dwight McLean logged the game’s only interceptions.

VANCOUVER WINS WITH FOUR-RUN SEVENTH

Vancouver scored six runs Sunday — with only two hits.

The Canadians scored four runs off Hillsboro reliever Mike Cetta in the seventh inning and beat the Hops 6-2 in Northwest League action.

Hillsboro starter Tyler Bolton had allowed only one hit and two runs (one earned) in six innings, while striking out six and walking one.

Cetta allowed only one hit in the ill-fated seventh inning. Cetta hit Ryan Metzler with a pitch and walked Kevin Garcia, and Juan Tejada bunted them over, and arrived safe at first. Earl Burl III singled to score Metzler, Garcia and Tejada; Burl III later scored on a wild pitch.

Stephen Dezzi had a two-run homer for Hillsboro (5-6).

Vancouver has won the first three games of the sereis. The teams play at 7:05 Monday night.

MARINERS LOSE ON WILD PITCH

The Seattle Mariners, now 34-42, are finding different ways to lose.

Tom Wilhelmsen uncorked a wild pitch in the bottom of the 10th inning, scoring Kole Calhoun, as the Los Angeles Angeles beat the Mariners 3-2.

Felix Hernandez exited the game after allowing only one hit in six innings, while striking out eight and walking three.

Kyle Seager had tied the game at 2-2 with a two-out, ninth-inning home run.

Robinson Cano (0-for-3) was back in the lineup after being hit in the head by an errant warmup throw the night before.

The Mariners have Monday off, before playing at San Diego at 7:10 Tuesday night, with Mike Montgomery (2-2, 2.04) pitching opposite Ian Kennedy (4-6, 5.09).

TIMBERS BEAT RIVAL SOUNDERS

The Portland Timbers registered 11 shots on goal, while holding Cascadia-rival Seattle Sounders FC to just one, and Darlington Nagbe scored in the first half, Fanendo Adi scored twice in the second and Rodney Wallace added a fourth goal in a 4-1 win over Seattle at Providence Park.

Portland’s 11 shots on goal Sunday against Sounders FC (9-7-2, 29 points) rank as the second-most in a single match in Portland’s MLS-club history, while the Timbers’ 23 total shot attempts is tied for third-most in a match since 2011. Defensively, Portland (8-6-4, 28 points) conceded just one shot on goal during the match, which marks the second time in the last three regular-season games that the Timbers have held an opponent to one shot on frame.

TIMBERS U-23S EARN DRAW

Forward Jesse Garcia-Aguilar netted the game-tying goal in the 34th minute to help Portland Timbers U-23 team earn a point on the road in a 1-1 draw against Puget Sound Gunners FC at Issaquah High School in Issaquah, Wash.

The Timbers U-23s (6-1-3, 21 points) conceded a goal early in the first half against Puget Sound Gunners (0-6-4, 4 points) as forward Daniel Gavin scored, getting a touch on a back pass from Portland in the fifth minute. Portland tallied the equalizer later in the first half as former Timbers Academy standout Garcia-Aguilar fired a well-placed shot inside the lower left corner of the net after receiving a pass from defender Niko De Vera to level the match in the 34th minute.

The Timbers U-23s remain on the road to face Lane United FC at Willamalane Center in Springfield, Ore., 8 p.m. Friday, July 3.

At the championships at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon's Jenna Prandini won the 200 meters, Portland's Evan Jager won the 3,000-meter steeplechase and Oregonian Nick Symmonds won the 800 meters — all among the final day of action Sunday, when the full U.S. team for the world championships in Beijing, China, became finalized.
