SWX Beat Clicks - Sept. 1, 2013

Posted: Updated:

Vernon Adams passed for 411 yards and ran for 107 and the go-ahead score with 18 seconds left as Eastern Washington upset no. 25 Oregon State 49-46 on Saturday to become the third FCS team to beat a ranked FBS team.

Adams: "What we are dealing with is unfinished business. The end of the road last December against Sam Houston State, we want to keep it going. We want to get to the national championship this year. I just love my team and I'm so proud of this win."

Coach Beau Baldwin: "This is a huge win. We aren't talking about an average team, we are talking about a bowl team and a big-time opponent that is well-coached. It took every ounce of every minute in this sucker to get it done."

The Spokane Indians won their third straight game over Everett, beating the host AquaSox 6-3 on Saturday night in a Northwest League game at Everett Memorial Stadium.

The Spokane Chiefs lost in a shootout Saturday night against the Everett Silvertips, 3-2. The score was 2-2 at the end of regulation and neither team scored in the overtime period.

Tre Mason returned a kick-off 100 yards and Corey Grant scored on a 75-yard run to lead Auburn to a 31-24 victory over Washington State Saturday night in Gus Malzahn's debut as the Tigers coach.

Joe Saunders pitched neatly into the sixth inning for his first win in a month, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Houston Astros 3-1 on Saturday night for their third consecutive victory.

Derek Thompson threw for 349 yards and two touchdowns in North Texas University's dominating 40-6 victory over Idaho in the season opener for both teams Saturday.

Jimmy Shane of Graham Trucking and Steve David of Oh Boy! Oberto won Saturday's heats at the Diamond Club hydroplane races on Lake Coeur d'Alene, and SWX's Michelle Dapper was on hand to take some great photos.

    This lengthy build-up leads me to one sincere question: Did the 2001 season doom the Seattle Mariners franchise? If the M's had won the World Series that year, would we be talking about a dynasty? Out of the Park Baseball 15 allows baseball fans to answer that question.
