Davey Mac of the Morning Rat Race (6 to 10 AM)

It’s the Davey Mac Sports Report for July 18th, 2022!   Catch up on what you missed yesterday with the article below!

We start with baseball…..where we had the last regular season games yesterday before the All Star Break.   The Yankees destroyed the Red Sox AGAIN…..THIRTEEN to TWO final score.   This comes a day after the Yanks crushed the Sox….14 to 1.   Meaning that the Yankees outscored Boston 27 to 3 on Saturday and Sunday.   Gerrit Cole pitched well and he improves to 9 and 2 on the year.  Yankee outfielder Tim LoCastro picked up three hits including his second home run of the year.  As the Yankees head into the All Star break at 64 and 28…which is the BEST record in all of baseball.

Meanwhile, the Mets ended their first half with a 3 to 2 loss to the Cubs.   The Mets go into the break at 58 and 35….which is still good for first place in the NL East.   The Mets currently lead the Braves by two-and-a-half games and the Phillies by eight-and-a-half games.

Speaking of the Phillies, they shut out the Marlins…4 to nothing.  The Phillies end their first half at 49 and 43……overcoming a very poor start and the Phils are very much in Wild Card contention and have some work to do in their division.

Boston Red Sox v New York Yankees

Golf.   Australian Cam Smith won the Open Championship at St. Andrew’s in Scotland yesterday…..putting up a winning score of 20 under par!   Smith stole the show by scoring five straight birdies to start the back nine and hitting clutch shots near the end.  Congrats to the unlikely Aussie who people ARE saying looks like Joe Dirt.

Basketball.  LeBron James went off on his latest episode of “The Shop,” after being asked why he hates Boston. His blunt answer … “Cause they racist as BLEEP.”

King James went on … “They will say anything. And it’s fine. It’s my life, I’ve been dealing with it my whole life. I don’t mind it. I hear it. If I hear somebody close by, I check them real quick, then move onto the game. They’re going to say whatever they want to say.”

Football.  The Houston Texans have reached settlements with thirty women who made claims against them due to the Deshaun Watson case.   Watson is now the quarterback for the Cleveland Browns…but has had several allegations made against him when he was a QB for the Texans.
