Philadelphia: Series tied after Phillies lose to Marlins
Source: Phillies/

⚾️Phillies: The Phillies lost to the Miami Marlins 3–1 last night to bring the series count to 1-1. On Tuesday, the Phils’ bats were falling flat until pinch hitter Ronald Torreyes smacked a two-run double, sparking their seven-run eighth inning and helping earn the 8–3 victory.

  • Last night, the Phils’ lone run was scored off a home run by everyone’s favorite center fielder, Andrew McCutchen, but sadly the remaining six hits weren’t enough to catch up to the Marlins. The teams finish the series tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

🥎Villanova: Less than a week after the Villanova women’s softball team won their first Big East Conference title in program history, the Wildcats will take the field in another program first: the NCAA tournament.

  • Leading the team is senior pitcher Paige Rauch, who racked up the accolades this year, becoming the first to ever win both Big East Player and Pitcher of the year in the same season. Get you a girl who can do both.

Rauch and the rest of the Villanova squad open the double-elimination regional tournament against the Ole Miss Rebels tomorrow at 6 p.m. ET. Let’s go ’Cats!
