It’s the Davey Mac Sports Report for Thursday, July 28th, 2022!   Catch up on what you missed yesterday in Sports with the article below!

Let’s start with baseball……where the Mets beat the Yankees in a close one…3 to 2.   The Yanks were down two to nothing to the Mets when Gleyber Torres dramatically tied the game in the 8th inning with a two-run home run.   It was Gleyber’s 16th homer of the year.

New York Yankees v New York Mets

But in the bottom of the ninth, Starling Marte singled in Eduardo Escobar to win the game for the Mets.   Wandy Peralta receives the loss for the Yankees.   Seth Lugo picks up the win.   The Mets end up taking both games in the two-game set and improve to 61 and 37.   The Yankees are still 66 and 33 but are just 4 and 6 in their last ten games.   The two teams will play again in Yankee Stadium in August.

The Phillies took down the Braves…7 to 2. J.T. Realmuto, Darick Hall, and Alec Bohm each had two hits for the Phillies…who are now are 51 and 47.   The Phils are very much in Wild Card contention as they’re just a half game behind the Cardinals for the third and final National League Wild Card spot.

Atlanta Braves v Philadelphia Phillies

Back to the Yankees for a second…where we have BIG news on the trade news.   It’s being reported that the Yankees have just acquired All Star outfielder from the Kansas City Royals, Andrew Benintendi.   The Yanks will be sending three Minor League prospects to the Royals for Benintendi.   Now, Benintendi is batting .320 this year…good contact hitter…but he’s also a guy who wasn’t vaccinated…meaning he can’t go to Toronto should the Yankees play the Blue Jays in the playoffs.   So this is risky.  Unless the Yanks are secretly convincing Benintendi to get vaccinated.   You never know!

Golf.  Two-time Master champion Bubba Watson is set to join the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series, the breakaway tour that continues to add well-known names to its roster.   The move is a controversial one for Watson…as the new Saudi Arabian golf tour has been criticized recently by PGA stars Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.

Football.  New Giants head coach Brian Daboll seems encouraged with the team’s progress thus far in the Summer.   Daboll met with reporters yesterday and said: “We are starting to crawl here. We are making progress, but we’ve got a long way to go.”   The Giants were 4 and 13 last year and averaged barely fifteen points a game.
