โšพ๏ธPhillies: After winning a game apiece earlier this week, the Phillies made a statement in the first inning against the NY Mets yesterday, going up 4โ€“0 with help from first baseman Rhys Hoskins and third baseman Alec Bolmโ€™s homers. Ring that MF bell! 

  • And our boys closed it out, winning 8โ€“2 and improving their record to 5-1. After sweeping the Atlanta Braves and beating the Mets in two of three games, the Phils are ready to sit on their thrones as the Princes of the NL East. 

โšฝ๏ธUnion: The Union beat Deportivo Saprissa 1โ€“0 in their first game of the 2021 CONCACAF Champions League (which includes champs from North America, Central America and the Caribbean) last night. DOOP, there it is. 

  • The Union qualified for CONCACAF by winning the Supportersโ€™ Shield in 2020, and earning the tournament title would qualify them for the 2021 FIFA Club World Cup. 
  • The Union play their second leg of the first round next week. They would then have to advance through the next two rounds (played later this year) to make it to the finals. Itโ€™s a marathon, not a sprint. 

๐ŸPenn State: The 9-5 Nittany Lions womenโ€™s volleyball team was selected for a spot in the NCAA Tournament, and in doing so will become the only team to have appeared in all 40 of the NCAA-sanctioned championships. Now thatโ€™s a legacy.
