Philadelphia: Second preseason game for the Eagles to happen tonight against Patriots


The GIST: We hope you’re feeling as healthy and wealthy as Sixer Joel Embiid is this week. That’s a lot of zeros.

⚾️Phillies: The Phillies dropped their second straight game to the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday, losing 4–2. Sigh. The teams close their series today at 3:40 p.m. ET, and as the Phils are now three and a half games behind the Atlanta Braves, they really need a W. 

🏈Eagles: The Eagles face the New England Patriots in their second preseason game tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. As with most preseason games, the starters will likely play very little (if at all), so it’s a fun chance to watch some different players. 

  • One receiver you might remember from last season that we’ll be looking out for is Travis Fulgham. He’s been hot and cold this preseason and is rumored to be on the chopping block. Drama. 

⚽️Union: The Union returned to MLS regular-season play last night after losing the first leg of their CONCACAF semifinal 2–0 to Club América in a tough game last week. Fortunately, the Union easily handled New York City FC yesterday, beating them 1–0. DOOP, baby.
