Good morning, Sports fans! Davey Mac here back with another action-packed Sports Report for ya! Surprising Jets news! Good deed done by the Clippers! And more! But first!
Stop the presses and get the Canyon of Heroes ready…the Yankees have finally won a game! That’s right! The Yanks actually won last night…snapping their first nine-game losing streak in 41 years…as the Yanks beat the Nationals…9 to 1. And it was all Aaron Judge who did the damage as Judge slugged three home runs in the game and basically told the Yankees: “Hop on my back.”
Judge now has 27 homers this season and helps the Yanks avoid what would have been their first 10-game losing streak since 1913. And while it’s good that the Yankees finally emerged with a W, owner Hal Steinbrenner still needs to do the right thing and clean house. Period.

The Mets were shut out by Charlie Morton and the Braves…7 to nothing. Morton struck out 11 Mets in the game as he picked up the win. The Mets dropped to 59 and 69 for the season.

Jets wide receiver Corey Davis, who’s only 28, has surprisingly announced that he is “stepping away” from football. Davis was going to make $10.5 million this season in the final year of his contract with the Jets…but will now be retiring. Crazy.

More football news. The 49’ers announced that former Jet Sam Darnold will be the backup QB…and since Brock Purdy was already named the starter after his amazing rookie season…that means that the Niners’ first-round draft pick Trey Lance…selected at Number 3 in the NFL Draft just two years ago…will be demoted to third-stringer. Wow.
