It’s the Davey Mac Sports Report for Friday, August 12th, 2022!   Catch up on what you missed yesterday in Sports with the article below!

Let’s start with football…where the Giants took down the Patriots last night on a last second field goal in their first Preseason Football game……23 to 21.   The Big Blue QB’s looked good…Daniel Jones was 6 for 10 for 69 yards…and backup Tyrod Taylor threw for 129 yards and a touchdown.   Giants running back Antonio Williams ran for 61 yards on 9 carries with a touchdown…as the G-Men looked pretty solid offensively and defensively.   Good debut for the Giants’ new head coach Brian Daboll!

Baseball.   The Phillies were shut out by the Marlins…three to nothing.   The Phils are still in the National League Wild Card picture, though.   At 62 and 49, they’re in good shape.   The Yankees and Mets were off.   This evening the Yankees begin a series against the Red Sox in Boston.   The Mets take on the Phillies at Citi Field.

Basketball.    The NBA is retiring #6 league-wide in honor of Bill Russell.   That was his number on the Boston Celtics.   Russell recently died.   He is the all-time greatest NBA champion as a player with ELEVEN titles…and he’s a legend to boot.

Back to baseball.   Did you see the Harry Caray hologram last night on MLB’s Field Of Dreams game?   It’s gotten mized reactions.   Some people thought it was cool and a great bit of nostalgia…others felt it looked weird.   What do you think?

 

Lastly…the Toms River Little League team plays TONIGHT in the Regional Finals!   The Jersey Shore juggernaut faces Massapequa, New York for a chance to advance to Williamsport!   Go Toms River!!
