It’s your ol’ pal and fired-up New Jerseyan, Davey Mac, back once again with another action-packed Sports Report and today we’re celebrating New Jersey!

Well, specifically, we’re celebrating Mike Trout and his home state of New Jersey.   As someone who grew up in the Garden State and has been a lifelong Jersey resident…I have a great deal of pride when it comes to any athlete or celebrity from this area having success.

I myself have submitted my glorious name, “East Side” Dave McDonald, to the New Jersey Hall Of Fame EVERY year for the past TEN years…but I have YET to be nominated foe the NJ H.O.F.   One day, that place will see the error of their ways and induct me into their Hall Of Fame…but I guess that day is not now.

Nevertheless, this is about Jersey’s Mike Trout.

Los Angeles Angels v Cleveland Guardians

Trout has had a Hall Of Fame career in Major League Baseball.   He’s been one of the best, if not the best, players of the past decade.   And tonight…Trout goes for history.

Trout, who was born in Vineland and grew up in Millville, has hit home runs in seven consecutive games.   If he hits one tonight, he will tie the MLB record of hitting a homer in eight straight games.   Dale Long of the Pirates, Don Mattingly of the Yankees, and Ken Griffey of the Mariners all hold the record.

Trout grew up a Phillies fan but also loving Derek Jeter as his favorite player.   He’s as Jersey as it gets.   I’m pulling for him tonight!   Tie that record, Mike!   Make history!   I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents.

  • Russell Wilson returns to Seattle but Broncos fall to Seahawks

    Russell Wilson returned to Seattle last night as quarterback now of the Denver Broncos.   Wilson, the greatest QB in Seahawks history and winner of a Super Bowl with Seattle, came up a little short as the Seahawks took down the Broncos…17 to 16.   Wilson played well…throwing for 340 yards, a touchdown, and no interceptions…but it was not enough.   Seattle was able to get enough offense with Geno Smith as their QB.   The Broncos did have a shot to win at the end as Denver attempted a 64-yard field goal with seconds to go but it was no good.   The Broncos fall to 0 and 1.   The Seahawks are now 1 and 0.

  • Bassitt sturggles as Mets lose

    The Mets fell to the Cubs…5 to 2.   Met starter Chris Bassitt failed to get through the 4th inning as he gave up all five runs and receives the loss.   The Mets are happy, though, as the Braves also lost last night…meaning that the Mets’ lead for first place in the N.L. East stays at one-and-a-half games over Atlanta.
