It’s the Davey Mac Sports Report for Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022! Catch up on what you missed yesterday in Sports with the article below!
Big day in baseball as we had games and a bunch of trades…let’s get to the scoreboard…as the Yankees beat the Mariners…7 to 2. Aaron Judge hit his 43rd home run of the season…which leads all of Major League Baseball…as Judge is still on pace for around 62 home runs…which would be an American League record. Anthony Rizzo also slugged his 26th home run of the year. And Jose Trevino crushed a pair of homers as well. The Yanks improve to 70 and 34.
Meanwhile, the Mets defeated the Nationals…7 to 3. Francisco Lindor hit his 18th home run of the year and Pete Alonso homered for his 27th of the season. Max Scherzer picked up the win to improve to 7 and 2. The Mets are now 65 and 37. Still good enough for first place in the N.L. East.
The Phillies were off yesterday. This evening, they have a big matchup against the Braves. The Phils are holding onto the third and final N.L. Wild Card spot.
Now for the trades. The Yankees have acquired starter Frankie Montas and reliever Lou Trivino in a deal with the Oakland A’s. Montas has a 3.18 ERA and overpowering stuff. Trivino can be useful in a setup position. The Yankees also traded for reliever Scott Effross of the Cubs…who has a 2.66 ERA right now.
Football. Big news regarding the Deshaun Watson case. And independent third-party judge who was in charge of deliberating the punishment for Watson has given him a six-game suspension. Some people are outraged at the games…thinking six is way too little.
Basketball. The NBA is the Knicks as to whether they possibly tampered when acquiring guard Jalen Brunson. It’s possible contacted Brunson before they were allowed to.
And that’s the Davey Mac Sports Report for Tuesday, August 2nd, 2022! BAM!
