Scene of the Week: Nationals Defeat Brewers in a Thriller to Advance to the NLDS
The Washington Nationals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers last Tuesday Night to advance to the National League Division Series in what was a fantastic ball game. It all started with Max Scherzer controversially starting over Stephen Strasburg who had been pitching incredibly well. But Max Scherzer is the best pitcher in baseball when in his groove. The Nationals opted to go with Scherzer who allowed three runs in five innings. Strasburg entered in relief and didn’t allow a run for three innings with Daniel Hudson ending it in the 9th inning.
The moment of the game was Juan Soto’s hit in the bottom of the 8th inning with the bases loaded and Juan Soto striking a ball down the right field line. The ball found its way through Trent Grishem’s legs, and the Nationals scored three runs to take a 4-3 lead against the Brewers.
It was a poetic ending to a poetic season in Washington. #StayintheFight really took place in Washington that night, and the Nationals look to defeat the Dodgers in the NLDS.
Take of the Week: Texas Will Defeat Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry
“We’re Back,” said Texas QB Sam Ehlinger after their Sugar Bowl victory last year against the Georgia Bulldogs. Texas is currently 4-1 with their only loss to the No. 5 ranked LSU Tigers, while Oklahoma is 5-0 with Jalen Hurts and Cedee Lamb playing phenomenally. They face off next week in Dallas and it’s definitely going to be a thrilling game.
At the beginning of the year, I predicted Texas to make the College Football Playoff and to have only one loss all season. That single loss has already happened, and this Texas team is just getting started. With Sam Ehlinger leading the way and WR Collin Johnson acting as a great weapon, this team is ready to compete. I expect a high scoring game, but Texas to win a close one. Texas is back.
Russell Wilson Just Proved Why He’s a Legit MVP Candidate
It seems strange to me that every single year this Seahawks team is doubted, they prove the haters wrong and make the playoffs. At the beginning of the season, many people I’d talk to did not expect much from this team. But if there is one thing I have learned over the years watching the NFL, it is never to doubt Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll.
The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Los Angeles Rams in the game of the year so far. Greg Zuerlein missed a 44-yard game-winner as time on the clock expired, but Russell Wilson was the headline of the game for me. Wilson went 17/23 with 268 yards and four TD’s showing why he should be mentioned in the MVP conversation. It makes you wonder, what if Seattle had a good offensive line?
The New York Mets have fired Manager Mickey Callaway after two seasons. Callaway upset Mets fans quite a few times this season with the bullpen issues being the worst of all. A strong second half of the season helped Callaway’s case, but his issues were bigger than the team’s production.
The Mets now look to find a new manager, which will help Pete Alonso and this whole Mets team.
