Dubs, our beloved Husky live mascot, recently filmed his television commercial debut. Check out the following behind-the-scenes video of the shoot. The commercial will air this fall on King5 and FSN.
WHITE SULFUR SPRING, W.V. -- Alex Prugh had a tough first round at the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia on Thursday, shooting a 3-over 73 in the first round. He is tied for 129th and will have his work cut out for himself on Friday to make the cut.
Prugh was able to stay out of trouble for the most part during his round, but he did not hit any birdies and had to count a double bogey and a bogey on his card. His tee shot went out of bounds on No. 9 costing Prugh a penalty stroken and eventual double on the par-4 hole.
Prugh will tee off at 1:20 p.m. ET.
Matt Every and Erik Compton lead after shooting 7-under 63's on Thursday.
Husky alums Louise Friberg and Paige Mackenzie struggled to find their footing in the first round of the RICOH Women's British Open on Thursday.
Friberg shot a 4-over 76 and is tied for 79th, while Mackenzie shot a 10-over 82 and is tied for 138th at Royal Birkdale Golf Club.
Jerry Brewer of the Seattle Times did a nice feature on Jon Brockman and the positive impression he has made with NBA fans despite his modest rookie numbers. As all Husky fans can attest...you have got to love the Brockness Monster!
Husky grads Louise Friberg and Paige Mackenzie are among the field for the RICOH Women's British Open which begins on Thursday at Royal Birkdale Golf Club in Southport, England.

EUGENE, Ore. -- The 44th Pacific Coast Championships opened on Tuesday at Eugene Country Club and individuals and teams battled it out for bragging rights.
The format for this championship is 72-holes of individual stroke play with no cut, but the event also features a team component, with three-man teams representing the 16 state and regional associations that make up the Pacific Coast Golf Association competing for the Morse Cup trophy. The champion is determined after the first 36 holes, with each team's best two scores each day counting toward the team score.
The Washington State Golf Association team has won the last two years but are well back in the pack this year. Recent UW grad Richard Lee is among the Washington team and the Bellevue native struggled to a 8-over for the day.
The best day among Huskies was reserved for Charlie Hughes, who is tied for ninth after a 1-under 70 in the first round. He is playing unattached so his score did not help any of the teams in the competition.
UW alum Derek Berg is part of the Pacific Northwest GA team that is tied for third -- two strokes off Utah GA and one stroke behind Oregon GA. The trio that also includes Cameron Peck and Andrew Putnam combined for 3-under. Berg is tied for 34th after a +3 (74).
Darren Wallace shot a 2-over par 73 and is tied for 29th. His Golf British Columbia team is tied for eighth at +1.
Next year is shaping up to be a defining year for Washington's Mason Foster. The linebacker is coming off an honorable mention All-Pac-10 season, one that included 85 tackles. Now he'll be the focal point of the Huskies defense with the departures of Donald Butler and Daniel Te'o-Nesheim.
Both of those players are headed to NFL training camp this week. Foster should be joining them next season, as many college football prognosticators have labeled him one of the best as his position in the Pac-10, as well as the nation.
The Seaside, Calif., native recently talked about the upcoming season with his hometown paper - the Monterey County Herald.
Foster will also be the Huskies representative at the Pac-10 media day this Thursday in Pasadena, Calif.
Team USA wrapped up the KFC World Cup of Softball championship with a 5-1 win over Japan in the title game Monday night in Oklahoma City.
Former Husky Ashley Charters, a senior on the UW's 2009 World Series championship squad, helped the Americans to the victory, going 2-for-3 with a run in the final.
In the third/fourth-place game, a USA Futures team that included current Dawgs Shawna Wright and Niki Williams on its roster, beat Canada, 9-3.
Williams appeared in the game as a pinch runner while Danielle Lawrie and Jenn Salling both started for Canada. Lawrie pitched 5.1 innings, but didn't figure in the decision as the Futures team scored six runs in the seventh to win. Salling drove in a run for Canada.
In the first game of the day Monday (delayed from Sunday due to rain), Team USA beat the Futures Team, 3-0. Charters got a rest for the senior squad while both Williams and Wright started for the youngsters.
Upcoming senior softball student-athlete Ashley Tuiasosopo was honored at the Tacoma Rainiers game on Saturday, July 24 by throwing out the first pitch. Her brother, Matt, a current outfielder for the Rainiers, was her catcher. The Rainiers won the game 6-4 over Sacramento. Click below to view a complete photo gallery from Ashley's night.
Husky senior-to-be Geoff Brown threw a complete-game, nine-inning shutout for his summer team, the Newport (R.I.) Gulls last night in a 2-0 win over the Keene Swamp Bats in a New England Collegiate Baseball League game.
Brown, from Jackson High in Mill Creek, gave up six hits and didn't walk a man in his nine-inning gem. He struck out three to pick up his second win of the year.
Here's the box score.
Rain in the Oklahoma City area affected Sunday's action at the KFC World Cup of Softball, but they still managed to get three of the four scheduled games played.
In the first game, Husky sophomore Shawna Wright started for the USA Futures team that beat Japan, 2-1.
In the second game of the day, three Huskies contributed to the Canada squad that handed the USA its first loss of the tournament, 5-2. Jenn Salling started and both Danielle Lawrie and incoming freshman Victoria Hayward appeared off the bench for Canada. Ashley Charters went 3-for-3 for Team USA.
The day wrapped up with Japan beating Canada, 4-0. Salling was the only Husky to appear in that game.
The World Cup wraps up Monday with three scheduled games. Team USA plays USA Futures at 10:00 a.m. PT, and then with the standings set, the third/fourth place game (#3 seed vs. Canada) goes off at 2:00 p.m. and the title game (#2 seed vs. USA) starts at 6:00 p.m. That title game will air live on ESPN.
Hopefully, you've already read this rundown of Brock Mackenzie's terrific performance at the RBC Canadian Open and will be rooting him on tomorrow. (Click that link for additional links to tee times, leaderboard, etc.)
But here's a Q & A from the PGA Tour's website with a little more info.
Huskies provided some big highlights at the KFC World Cup of Softball in Saturday's action.
While there wasn't much to report from a UW standpoint in games one and two, game three had more than it's share.
In the day's first game, Team USA beat the USA Futures team 1-0, though none of the three current or former Huskies that might have played in that game saw action.
In the second game of the day, the U.S. improved to 4-0 in the tournament with an 8-0 victory over Japan. Former Dawg Ashley Charters started at second base, but went 0-for-3.
In the day's third game, Canada beat the USA Futures team, 5-4, for the first Canadian victory of the weekend. Huskies played a large role on both sides. The Canadians trailed 4-0 before scoring two in the sixth and three in the seventh.
Jenn Salling led the winning side by going 3-for-3 as the Canadian starting shortstop. Incoming U-Dub freshman Victoria Hayward saw time as a pinch runner. Both Niki Williams and Shawna Wright started for the USA Futures team. Wright went 2-for-3 with the game's only home run and two RBI while Williams started in right field.
There's still plenty more action from Oklahoma City at the World Cup. Sunday, there are four games scheduled. In order: Japan vs. USA Futures; USA vs. Canada; USA vs. USA Futures; Canada vs. Japan. The USA-Canada game will air live on ESPN2 and espn3.com at 2:00 p.m. PT, and you can watch the other three on the internet by going here (click on the schedule top midway down the page).
Plenty of Huskies in action again at the KFC World Cup of Softball Friday in Oklahoma City as there were three games played, all involving current, former or future Huskies.
In the day's first game, the USA Futures team edged Canada, 5-4. Husky senior-to-be Jenn Salling homered and drove in two runs for the Canadians while incoming freshman Victoria Hayward started in right field. Danielle Lawrie, appearing in relief, suffered the loss on the mound. UW junior Niki Williams scored a run as a pinch runner for the Futures squad.
In the second game of the day, Team USA blanked Japan, 5-0. Former Dawg Ashley Charters started at second base for the U.S. She went 0-for-1, but did draw a pair of walks in the victory.
The day ended with Japan getting past Canada, 1-0. Salling went 1-for-3 and Hayward saw action as a pinch runner.
There's plenty more on tap Saturday, including two games on television. At 9:00 a.m. PT, the USA and USA Futures Team square off on ESPN. At 5:00 p.m., it's the Americans vs. Japan, on ESPN2. The day wraps up with Canada vs. the USA Futures team at 6:00 p.m. You can watch that on the web by clicking here.
Former Husky pitcher Forrest Snow pitched three more scoreless innings last night as his Everett Aquasox beat Salem-Keizer, 5-4, in 14 innings.
Snow, who was drafted and signed by the Mariners organization after the 2010 college season, has now worked 22.1 innings in his pro career without allowing a run, earned or not. Last night in Salem, he pitched three innings, allowing a hit and four walks, but no runs.
Also, don't forget that you can vote for Snow in Minor League Baseball's "Minors Moniker Madness," which is seeking to find the best name in baseball.
Five of the six former, current and future Huskies at the KFC World Cup of Softball saw action on Thursday, the first day of the event, which is being held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.
In the tournament opener, former Dawg Ashley Charters and Team USA coasted to a 9-0 win over Team Canada, which featured Danielle Lawrie, Jenn Salling and incoming freshman Victoria Hayward. Charters scored a run for the Americans. Both Lawrie and Salling started for the Canadians, and Hayward appeared as a defensive replacement.
In the late game, Husky catcher Shawna Wright provided both runs for the USA Futures team in a 3-2 loss to Japan. Wright, who will be a sophomore next spring, drove in both runs in the bottom of the seventh to draw her team within a run.
Action continues today. Canada plays the USA Futures team at 1:00 p.m. PT. At 5:00 p.m., Team USA faces Japan and at 6 p.m., it's Canada vs. Japan. The USA-Japan game is on ESPN, but you can also watch webcasts of the other two. Here's all the info you need from the USA Softball website.
Former Husky star Brent Lillibridge, who is in town with the Chicago White Sox for a series vs. the Mariners, is profiled in today's edition of the Everett Herald. You can read it by clicking here.
Lillibridge, who was originally drafted by the Pirates before being traded to the Braves and then the Sox, is enjoying a renaissance in Chicago this summer since being called up from AAA.
Keep up the good work, Lilly!
Pac-10 Football Media Day will be held next Thursday, July 29, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
Today, the conference office released some information on the events of the day, including which players from each team will be appearing and in what order. There's also information on following the events of the day online, and how to participate yourself.
Read all about it right here.
Senior linebacker Mason Foster will represent the UW, along with head coach Steve Sarkisian.
A couple quick Husky hoops notes:
--Jon Brockman is chatting on SeattleTimes.com right now. Click here to submit a question or read the transcript.
--Nate Robinson will throw out the first pitch on Friday before the Mariners play the Boston Red Sox at 7 p.m. Make sure to get to the game early to cheer Robinson on!
Two former Huskies -- receiver Sonny Shackelford and safety C.J. Wallace -- appear on the most recent rosters of the Sacramento Mountain Lions and the Las Vegas Locomotives, respectively, of the United Football League.
The UFL announced its 2010 schedule, which includes five teams, up one from the league's inaugural season in 2009. Sacramento and Las Vegas are joined by Omaha, Hartford and Florida.
The Mountain Lions, who went by the name "California Redwoods" last season, are coached by former Stanford and Minnesota Vikings head coach Dennis Green. Jim Fassel, the former New York Giants head man, is the Locomotives' coach.
Forrest Snow, the former Washington pitcher, kept his perfect earned run average in tact with four scoreless innings Sunday at Yakima as his Everett Aquasox beat the Bears, 5-3.
Snow, who joined the Aquasox after being drafted and signed by the Seattle Mariners, has yet to allow a run, earned or not, in 19.1 innings this season.
Sunday in Yakima, he worked four innings, allowing two hits and walking one while striking out seven to earn a save, his third of the year.
Here's a write-up of the game from the Yakima Herald.
RENO, Nev. -- Former Husky Alex Prugh struggled in the first round of the Reno-Tahoe Open on Thursday, shooting a 5-over-par 77 at Montreaux Golf and Country Club. He is tied for 100th out of 124 competitors.
Prugh had eight bogeys during the round. His lone bright spots were an eagle on No. 17 and a birdie on No. 6. He played in the afternoon round when winds picked up.
He will tee off at 8:26 a.m. on Friday morning.
LAS VEGAS -- Justin Dentmon scored two points -- his first as an NBA player -- in a 101-85 Summer League win for his Memphis Grizzlies over a team of NBA D-League Select players.
Dentmon was 1-for-3 from the field and played eight minutes.
Justin Dentmon, a 2009 graduate from Washington, was added to the Memphis Grizzlies Summer League team. He made his debut for the Griz on Tuesday and did not score in four minutes of action.
Here is his Summer League bio page.
Former Husky catcher Pierce Rankin, who signed with the Toronto Blue Jays after last season, hit his first two minor league homers in a Gulf Coast League game Monday.
Rankin belted two homers while going 3-for-4 with three RBI for the GCL Blue Jays in a 9-1 win over the Pirates.
Those two homers moved him into a tie for the team lead, and he also shares the lead with nine RBI through Tuesday's play.
Closer to Seattle, another former Husky has continued a terrific streak to begin his pro career. Forrest Snow, playing for the Everett Aquasox, the Mariners affiliate in the Northwest League, has yet to allow a run in seven outings and 15.1 innings of pro ball this summer.
Yesterday, Snow threw three scoreless innings at Yakima. He's now allowed just four hits and walked only four while striking out 16 this summer.
The UW Alumni Association is looking for your help for some creative slogans for buttons for upcoming, 2010 football games.
If you have any bright ideas for funny or cutting slogans for any of the UW's 12 games this year, check out the UWAA's website.
It was an eventful weekend for the Huskies quarterback, who tossed out the ceremonial first pitch at Safeco Field last Saturday.
For those not in attendance, GoHuskies.com was there to provide a recap. And the Mariners were recently able to send over the video of the pitch (a strike) and the crowd's reaction. It all culminated with an exciting, late-inning win by the Mariners over the Yankees.
As you can imagine, it's been a busy summer for Locker so far, who recently took a trip to New York City and Connecticut to meet with ESPN and members of the media.
When men's rowing freshman Max Mannisto returned home to the Bay Area, he discovered there was piqued interest with his recent win at the Henley Royal Regatta.
Mannisto was recently featured in The Daily Journal of San Mateo, which chronicled his trip to Henley and the Grunties' Temple Cup victory, one of the more historic moments in the crew program's history. The win capped an undefeated season for the Huskies, which included a Pac-10 Championship and a National Championship at IRAs.
The Belmont native was a recruited walk-on to the University of Washington. But like all who come to row for the UW, he has embraced the experience. Part of what makes being a Husky unique is competing in events like Henley, a pinnacle moment for student-athletes.
"Everyone in the rowing world knows about Henley," Mannisto said in the article. "Rowing is not really a spectator sport at all, and to see so many people there watching was unbelievable."
A couple of notes from action in the West Coast League (a wood bat summer league located in the Northwest) from Sunday:
Husky lefty Ben Guidos, playing for the Bend (Ore.) Elks, tossed a nine-inning complete game in a 6-1 win over Bellingham. Guidos allowed one run on a solo homer, didn't walk anyone and struck out six. His ERA is now 1.69, second-best in the league.
UW's Eric Peterson, who plays for the Wenatchee Applesox, had a big night in a 5-0 win over Walla Wall. Peterson went 3-for-3 with two doubles, a homer and two RBI. With four home runs this season, he's tied for second in the league, trailing only Husky teammate Chase Anselment, who has hit five this summer for the Kitsap BlueJackets. Peterson is also currently second in the league with a .385 batting average while Anselment is fourth at .363.
Former Husky and current Winnipeg Blue Bombers linebacker Joe Lobendahn is making a splash in the CFL early this season, evidenced by the fact that he was named the CFL Defensive Player of the Week for the opening week of play in the league.
Here's a good feature story on Lobendahn from a Winnipeg newspaper.
SI.com's Luke Winn caught up with Abdul Gaddy while he was in San Antonio with the U18 USA Basketball squad and reports that the soon-to-be Husky sophomore is poised to make a big jump in 2010-11.
It is a good story that hopefuly should help alleviate some of the worries of fans that were disappointed by Gaddy's rookie numbers. It's easy to forget the Gaddy didn't turn 18 until late January, probably adding to the slow development of the McDonald's All-American.
Quincy Pondexter can finally officially call New Orleans his new home as his much anticipated trade from Oklahoma City was consumated. The Hornets finalized a deal with the Thunder that sent the rights to Cole Aldrich and guard Morris Peterson in exchange for the rights to Craig Brackins and Pondexter.
Pondexter, the 26th overall pick in the draft, finished third in the Pac-10 in scoring (19.3 ppg) and rebounds (7.4 rpg) for Washington his senior season. Quincy was named All-Pac-10 First Team and to the Pac-10 All-Tournament Team his senior season and set a Pac-10 record with five player-of-the-week honors. The 6-6, 225 pound guard/forward finished his career as Washington's all-time career leader in games played (136) and finished third in scoring (1,786 points).
Pondexter joins fellow Pac-10 alums Darren Collison (UCLA) and Ike Diogu (Arizona State) on the New Orleans roster.
Canadian website Slam Sports has this interesting feature on former Husky and current Winnipeg Blue Bombers linebacker Joe Lobendahn.
Joe is quickly becoming a well-known veteran north of the border and got his season off to a good start with a team-high eight tackles in the Bombers' 49-29, season-opening win over Hamilton last Friday.
Winnipeg takes on Toronto this Friday in the second week of CFL action.
DuPONT, Wash. -- Husky junior-to-be Jens Bracht shot a course record 6-under 66 on Wednesday at the Home Course in DuPont and led after the first round of the Sahalee Players Championship.
Despite his blistering score, he couldn't shake Oklahoma State All-American Peter Uihlein, who equaled Bracht's 66 to grab a share of the lead. Golfers are currently on the course playing the second round of the 72 hole tournament.
Bracht, who began his round from the 10th tee, started his day with an eagle and added four birdies to make the turn at 6-under. He bogeyed No. 1, but answered with back-to-back birdies to go 7-under through 12 holes. He gave a stroke back on the next hole but closed his round with five-straight pars.
UW's Chris Williams was tied for eighth after the first round at -2. Charlie Hughes shot an even-par 72 in the first round, while recently graduated Darren Wallace and defending champion Nick Taylor are each 1-over par.
Richard Lee and UW alum Derek Berg each struggled and shot uncharacteristic 8-over 80 in the first round.
Worcester, England -- In the second of back-to-back games against Lithuania, Matthew Bryan-Amaning and his Team GB teammates lost 92-78 on Wednesday.
Bryan-Amaning scored eight points and grabbed six rebounds against the more experienced Lithuanian squad. He struggled from the field connecting on just three of 17 attempts and was also just 2-of-8 from the free throw line.
The game was a friendly between the two countries that pitted England's developmental team against Lithuania's squad that is preparing for the European FIBA Basketball championships in August.
MBA will return to London and rest before training begins with the National Team.
Husky tennis recruit Max Manthou will serve up a different kind of ball than the one he's used to this evening, as the four-time Washington state tennis champion will throw out the first pitch before the Mariners take on the Kansas City Royals at Safeco Field.
Manthou, a Tacoma native, was undefeated in four years of play for Kentwood High School, and became the first student-athlete in state history to win four-consecutive 4A state singles titles. He also played for Kentwood's state champion boys basketball team this season.
Game time is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. so head in a little early to see if Manthou's pitching arm is as good as his forehand or jump shot.
Here's a shot of Manthou on the mound on Wednesday. He threw to M's outfielder Ryan Langerhans and posed for a photo with him afterwards.
If you have an ESPN Insider account, make sure to check out the profile of Jake Locker's draft status that was posted this morning.
One of the media guests at Locker's lunch last month was ESPN the Magazine's Chris Sprow, the author of the feature. It takes a look primarily at Locker's draft status in the NFL, which has been one of the topic du jour's ever since the senior decided to return to the University of Washington for his final year.
The key statistic for Locker, according to Sprow, is completion percentage. It's something Coach Steve Sarkisian and offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier have continued to harp on Locker since they arrived on campus. The magic number for Sarkisian is 60 percent, which is the same number Sprow said NFL evaluators want to see elite quarterbacks.
Nussmeier said the key to Locker improving that mark (58 percent last season) will be the development of his footwork. The other two keys Coach Nuss touched upon were "ball security" and staying in rhythm.
As you can see, the article discusses a lot of the minutia that goes into playing the position. Also included is a sidebar note from NFL draft guru Mel Kiper Jr., who touches upon the QBs in the Pac-10 Conference.
The Seattle Department of Transportation issued an update today on the project to replace the 45th Street viaduct, which spans from the upper campus area to University Village.
Drivers who frequent the area are probably aware that the viaduct closed last month and will continue to be closed up until the first home football game of the season, Sept. 11 vs Syracuse.
Here's what the SDOT had to report today:
"Effective immediately until early August, SDOT has closed the connections of 21st and 22nd Avenues NE to NE 45th Street to complete the installation of a combined sewer overflow system. Local access only from other connecting streets will be allowed along 21st and 22nd Avenues NE during this time. This work is a part of the NE 45th Street Viaduct Project to replace the aging west approach. NE 45th Street will be completely closed to all traffic, bicycles and pedestrians between Montlake Blvd NE and 20th Avenue NE from June 14 - September 10, 2010."
For more information, including some updated photos, visit the project's web site.
Washington QB Jake Locker had an early wake-up call on Wednesday to join the "Mitch in the Morning" show on 950 KJR-AM. During his segment on air, Locker discussed a myriad of topics with host Mitch Levy, most notably his recent trip to NYC.
"It was a lot of fun," Locker said. "Just to have the opportunity to do that, I'd never thought I'd be able to see the ESPN campus and the studios and sit on some of the sets you've seen in the morning."
The highlight of the trip for Locker was a chance to break down a play on College Football Live with Brock Huard, who is a regular around Husky football practices. The two UW quarterbacks, along with Heisman Trophy winner Andre Ware, looked at a play last season from the Cal game, when Locker made a silent audible to a "hot route" (quick slant), that went for a TD.
Locker gave the full rundown of the trip, including the pizza he had in New Haven, Conn., at Frank Pepe's and getting a chance to experience Times Square.
"It was awesome; kind of like Vegas," Locker said. "Lot of lights, lot of color, streets are blocked off. It's a pretty cool place."
At the end of the interview, Levy thanked Locker and called him a "breath of fresh air." After Locker hung up, Levy and his co-host continued to discuss the underlying attributes of student-athletes at Washington (like Locker, Jon Brockman and Brandon Roy, for example) who are wonderful representations of their university.
By the way, if you missed the Locker interview, it's available on the KJR website as a podcast. You'll also get a chance to hear Locker double up as a karaoke crooner, belting out the Garth Brooks hit "Friends in Low Places" on a Levy dare.
Note: Apparently Tim Lincecum did a similar thing with Mitch going into his senior year at the UW.
Husky first baseman Troy Scott has had a hot bat lately, playing summer ball for the Green Bay Bullfrogs of the Northwoods League. Tonight, he really broke through, going 2-for-3 with five RBI and two homers in a 13-6 win over the Wisconsin Woodchucks.
Tuesday night, Scott hit a two-run homer in the first inning and then a three-run shot in the third.
Scott also homered in a win over the Woodchucks on Monday and, with four homers this summer, is tied for third in the Northwoods League.
Vacation is over for Husky senior-to-be Matthew Bryan-Amaning, as he and the rest of the Great Britain Futures Team travels to Lithuania to play a couple of games.
MBA is one of four members of the Senior Team (National Team) that is playing in the tournament. None of the NBA guys (Ben Gordon and Luol Deng) will be playing in this tournament.
A quick glance at the West Coast League stats today shows that Husky baseball players are leading the league in two major categories
Lefty pitcher Ben Guidos, playing for the Bend (Ore.) Elks, is the league leader in earned run average with a sterling 1.00 mark. Guidos is 2-0 with wins over Cowlitz and Moses Lake.
Slugger Chase Anselment leads the WCL, a wood-bat summer collegiate league, with four homers. Anselment, who plays for Kitsap, has four homers to share the league lead. He also has 14 RBI and leads the team with a .327 batting average.
The Canadian Football League season opened up this weekend, beginning with a pair of games on July 1, which was Canada Day.
Two of the three Huskies in the CFL have begun their 2010 seasons.
Cody Pickett's Calgary Stampeders beat one his old teams, Toronto, 30-16, though Pickett, a backup QB who only joined the Stamps late in their training camp, didn't see any action.
In Winnipeg's 49-29 win over Hamilton, former Dawg Joe Lobendahn was the defensive star, finishing the game with eight tackles, including two sacks. Lobendahn was also voted as a captain of the Blue Bombers.
Tomorrow (Sunday, July 4), former Husky Kai Ellis and his Edmonton Eskimos face the BC Lions in both teams' regular-season opener. Edmonton edged the Lions, 36-32, on June 20 in an exhibition game.
Former Washington pitcher Forrest Snow has had an easy time of it in the Class A (short-season) Northwest League since joining the Everett Aquasox after last month's draft.
Snow has now appeared in four games and has yet to allow a hit, much less a run, over eight and one-third innings.
Snow doesn't have a decision, but does have one save. In his 8.1 innings, he's allowed two walks while striking out nine.
Here are his current stats.
