RENTON, Wash. (AP) – The Seattle Seahawks felt they would be set at tight end after selecting Luke Willson in the fifth round of April’s draft. With veterans Zach Miller and Anthony McCoy returning to fill the top two spots on the depth chart, Willson would come in as a third option to solidly the back end of the Seahawks’ roster. But those plans have since been thrown out the window. McCoy was lost for the season to a torn Achilles during OTAs in May and Miller has yet to practice in training camp.

SEATTLE (AP) – Felix Hernandez blanked Milwaukee on four hits for eight innings and the Seattle Mariners topped the Brewers 2-0 Sunday. Hernandez (12-5) struck out nine and walked one in his first career appearance against the Brewers. The 2010 AL Cy Young winner leads the league with a 2.28 ERA and is second with 178 strikeouts. This was the eighth time this year that he pitched at least eight innings. The M’s were off yesterday; they’ll take on Tampa Bay beginning today.

SEATTLE (AP) – Tina Thompson had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Tanisha Wright added 16 points and the Seattle Storm earned a 69-63 victory over the San Antonio Silver Stars on Sunday. Wright’s two free throws with 10.9 seconds left made it a two-possession game. Camille Little also had a double-double for Seattle (10-12), scoring 11 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.
