Phillies sweep the Reds while Eagles prepare for 2022 NFL season
The Phillies rebounded from losing three out of four to the New York Mets last weekend by completing a four-game sweep of the Cincinnati Red on Thursday Night. The Phillies outscored the Reds 22-16 during the home series with a combination of timely hitting and solid pitching. The Phillies now have three four-game series sweeps this year; The last time that happened was 1953! However, the big news is the anticipated return of 2021 National League MVP Bryce Harper to the lineup and the concern of placing their Ace Starting Pitcher Zack Wheeler on the 15-day Injury List. It’s bittersweet news heading into the weekend series with the Pittsburgh Pirates coming to town for three games as the Phillies hope to keep winning.
The Eagles are in Miami to finish their preseason play on Saturday night against the Dolphins. None of the starters are expected to play but it’s exciting to watch the Birds on the gridiron and see some of the young players get those extra reps before the season starts!
