Good morning, Sports fans!  Davey Mac here with another action-packed Sports Report for ya!  NBA regular season is here!  Aaron Rodgers update!  Hockey scores!  And more!  But first!

We had two fantastic Game 7’s in Major League Baseball these past couple of days.  First, the Texas Rangers elininated the Houston Astros to win the American League Championship Series.   And last night, the Phillies fell to the Diamondbacks in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series yesterday…4 to 2.

Amazing.  Arizona had been down 3 games to 2 with the last two games in Philadelphia but somehow the D-Backs found a way to win the series.  Their manager, Torey Lovullo, stayed calm and expressed for his confidence in his club despite trailing Philly in the series.

It’s the second, straight, heart-breaking ending for the Phillies’ season.  After having an incredible second half last year…the Phillies made it all the way to the World Series…only to come up just a little short.  Now, once again, they were on the verge of making history…but they couldn’t quite finish the job.
