The Philadelphia Phillies seem to really love the month of June; For the second straight year, the Phillies are playing better in the month of June compared to how they started the season.  Last year the Phillies went 19-8 in the month of June and this year seems to be headed in the same direction with a 10-4 record so far.  The reasons are clear: They’re finally getting good starting pitching and the offense has finally awakened from their slumber.  In Ranger Suarez’s last four starts, he has a 1.35 ERA with 22 strikeouts and only seven walks in 26.2 Innings Pitched.  Also, Taijuan Walker has been pitching great in his last five starts, showcasing a 1.93 ERA and a Batting Average Against of .188 in 28 Innings Pitched.  Now let's talk about the offense, scoring 39 runs in the last five games and for the month of June the Phillies are averaging 5.7 Runs Per Game.  They are firing on all cylinders and it's fun to watch this version of the Phillies play at the level we expected them to before the season started!

The champions were crowned in both the NBA and NHL; Now that Nikola Jokic and his Nuggets won their first NBA Title, what does the future look like for the Sixers?  The Las Vegas Golden Knights won the Stanley Cup in their sixth year of existence, so what does that mean for the Flyers Rebuild?  The Eagles have a month before they return to practice for the 2023 season and we will talk about it ALL this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim.
