It’s the Davey Mac Sports Report for Friday, July 29th, 2022!   Catch up on what you missed yesterday in Sports with the article below!

Let’s start with baseball…..where the Yankees got a nice win last night and it was their best player who gave it to them as the Yanks beat the Royals…..one to nothing……on a walk-off home run from Aaron Judge.   The Yankees’ Jameson Taillon was excellent…throwing six innings, giving up no runs, while striking out six.   Then the bullpen took over and threw up zero’s as well.   And then in the bottom of the ninth…with the score tied at 0 – 0…Aaron Judge stepped up and slugged his 39th home run of the year…and his THIRD walk-off home run of the season.   Judge is now tied with Mickey Mantle (1959) for most walk-off home runs in a single season in Yankee history.   Amazing.

Meanwhile, big win for the Phillies as they took down the Pirates…8 to 7.   Kyle Schwarber hit his 32nd home run of the year for the Phils in the victory.   With the win, the Phillies are now tied with the Cardinals for the third and final National League Wild Card spot.

Football.   Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder testified before members of the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform regarding his franchise’s alleged toxic workplace culture.   A spokesperson for Snyder said he answered every question.   The committee began investigating Snyder in October for toxic (if not illegal) culture within the Washington Commanders organization.

Basketball.   The 76’ers officially announced on their new deal with veteran James Harden.   The Sixers’ deal contract with Harden is reportedly for two years and $68.6 million.   Harden says that he took less money so that the Sixers can sign more pieces to the team.   We’ll see if it works out.
