SATURDAY LOCAL SPORTS NEWS/Plus: recaps of other soccer, college baseball and softball, Pickles, Mariners and more


SAN ANTONIO 2, Portland 1

• San Antonio scored two late goals to beat visiting Portland 2-1 in United Soccer League action.

Portland took a 1-0 lead in the 50th minute. Augustine Williams was fouled inside the penalty area by Darnell King and converted the penalty kick.

A run and pass by Marvin Loria set up Williams to create the foul.

That put T2 in position to win, but San Antonio put away two opportunities from near the penalty spot.

Owayne Omar Gordon tied the game in the 85th minute off an assist from King.

The winner came from Alex Bruce, who reacted first to a loose ball.

The loss dropped Portland to 7-4-2 (23 points), still third place in the USL Western Conference. San Antonio is 4-3-5 (17), ninth in the conference.

Next for T2 is a June 9 game at Rio Grande Valley in Edinburg, Texas.


PORTLAND 1, Los Angeles Galaxy 1

• A penalty kick by Diego Valeri — his team-high sixth goal this season — enabled the Timbers to escape with a draw at home.

Chris Pontius scored in the 20th minute.

The Timbers, who haven't lost in their last seven matches, are 6-3-3 (21 points).

The Galaxy are 5-7-2 (17).


Oregon State 14, LSU 1

• The Beavers had 15 hits and got solid-enough pitching from ace Luke Heimlich to beat the Tigers in the Corvallis regional and avenge a loss to them in last year's College World Series.

OSU scored five runs in the first three innings, all with two out, to hand Heimlich (15-1) a five-run lead.

A five-run top of the fourth made it a 10-0 OSU lead.

Heimlich worked seven innings, allowing one run on six hits and four walks. He struck out three.

The Beavers will play at 6 p.m. Sunday against the winner of the 3 p.m. game at Goss Stadium between LSU and Northwestern State.
