• The Pickles went 0 for 3 this weekend — in games they weren't able to play — and so did the AppleSox.

Sunday's scheduled 5 p.m. West Coast League game was called off due to rain.

Rained-out games from Friday and Saturday will be made up on Monday, with start times of 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Walker Stadium.


Portland Thorns forward Christine Sinclair scored her 173rd international goal for Canada, but Germany won Sunday's friendly, 3-2, at Hamilton, Ontario.

The Germans, reigning Olympic champs, broke a 2-2 tie in the 84th minute.

Sinclair's 59th-minute goal off a free kick — in her 268th national team appearance — knotted the teams at 1-1.

Sinclair, who will be 35 on Tuesday, needs 11 goals to tie former U.S. star Abby Wambach for the all-time lead in international play.


Seattle 5, TAMPA BAY 4

• On a day when three of the Mariners' six hits were home runs (by Nelson Cruz, 13th of the season; Mike Zunino, 10th; and Kyle Seager, 12th), a throw from right fielder Mitch Haniger to Zunino got Rays runner Johnny Field trying to score from second on a single, and ended the game.

Seattle (41-24) took the series, 3-1, and has won 17 of its last 22 games.

Winning pitcher James Paxton (6-1) struck out 10 batters in seven innings.

Tampa Bay slipped to 29-35.
