It’s the Davey Mac Sports Report for Wednesday, August 10th, 2022! Catch up on what you missed yesterday in Sports with the article below!
Let’s start with baseball…where, despite Gerrit Cole pitching well, the Yankees lost to the Mariners in extra innings…one to nothing. Cole threw for seven innings, struck out eight, gave up no runs, and walked zero. But the Yankees couldn’t score. The Mariners won it in the bottom of the 13th on a single…as the Yanks drop to 70 and 41…still a great record…but now TIED with the Houston Astros for best record in the American League.
Meanwhile, the Mets continue their winning ways with a 6 to 2 victory over the Reds. Francisco Lindor slugged his 20th home run of the season…Jeff McNeil hit his 7th homer of the year…as the Mets improve to 72 and 39…seven games in front of the Braves for first place in the National League East.
The Phillies beat the Marlins…4 to 1. Zack Wheeler pitched six innings and gave up just the one run to pick up the win for the Phils. Jean Segura and J.T. Realmuto each homered in the win for the Phillies…who are now 61 and 48 and are in the second N.L. Wild Card spot.
Football. Giants offensive line coach Bobby Johnson has apologized for his part in instigating a brawl during Monday’s practice. According to reports, Johnson pushed linebacker Cam Brown…which led to a bit of a dustup amongst the G-Men.

Brooklyn Nets governor Joe Tsai is supporting the Nets’ coach and GM after Brooklyn superstar Kevin Durant said that the Nets need to either fire coach Steve Nash and GM Sean Marks or TRADE Durant. So now what does this mean? Does Durant stick with getting traded? And can the Knicks get him?
Tennis. Serena Williams announced her retirement yesterday. She says this year’s U.S. Open in September will be her FINAL tournament. Serena’s resume is absolutely legendary. Twenty-three Grand Slam titles, four Gold medals, and 73 singles titles…she’s quite possibly the greatest women’s player of all time.
Did you see that Little League World Series clip from yesterday? Pitcher Kaiden Shelton of the Texas team inadvertently hit Isaiah Jarvis of Oklahoma in the head with a pitch…and Shelton was clearly upset by the incident. But, Jarvis went over to Shelton and gave him a consoling hug in a moment of great sportsmanship. Now, that’s baseball!
And TONIGHT…the Toms River Little League will look to advance as they play this evening at 7 PM. The game will be on one of the ESPN channels. Check your local listings. Of course, Toms River has had an amazing history with the Little League World Series…winning it all in 1998! Go Toms River and go New Jersey!!
And THAT’s today’s Davey Mac Sports Report! BAM!
