About this Episode

Matt and Steve are talking about this week in sports updates, including:

  • The Riverhounds took its first USL loss of the season 1-0 to Nashville, but had a 0-0 tie with Penn FC after.
  • The Riverhounds returned home for the weekend with the Richmond Kickers.
  • Pitt Baseball made it to the Final 4 of the ACC tournament, but lost to Louisville.
  • It seems that the ACC has elevated PITT in smaller non-mainstream collegiate athletics.
  • Mark Madden wrote an article on Sullivan and Kessel.
  • In PGA news, it's the last week in the Forth Worth Invitational.
  • Justin Rose won with a -20.
  • Steve got to check out some of the Memorial at Muirfield Village “Jack's Place”
  • It's fun to see the pros do some of the same things Steve does.
  • The NHL Stanley Cup Finals!
  • Game one went to the Knights with a back-and-forth game with a 6-4 final, and game two went to the Caps 3-2.
  • Tom Wilson of the Caps had a few questionable hits in game one - especially the one on Jonathan Marchessault.
  • Ryan Reaves' punch to the nose in front of the Caps net in game two sent a message to the not-so-nice Wilson.
  • The NBA Finals started. It's the 4th straight year of the Warriors and Cavs in the final.
  • The first game went to overtime, and Lebron had some issues with it.
  • Hill made the tying free throw and missed the second with 5 seconds left on the clock.
  • Cleveland passed the ball around and looked like they were playing keep-away to protect a win they didn't have.
  • On the replay, JR Smith said he thought they were ahead.
  • In OT the Warriors go on a 7-0 run, and end up with Klay Thomson ejected and the Cavs losing.
  • Steelers' OTAs continue and the rookies are getting to learn the play book and figure out their exact positions.
  • Jerald Hawkins, the back-up OT, was carried off the field with a ruptured quad. Third pick, Oakafore, is now up for the position.
  • Jake McGee also limped off the field with injury.
  • Most of the stars of the team (the “Skilled Position Players”) were absent for the second week of OTA’s, but that was no shocker.
  • 1978 throwbacks.
  • The Pirates lost 2 of 3 to the Reds, 2 of 3 to the Cards, and 2 of 3 to the Cubs with some drama on the base pads in the Cubs series.
  • The Buccos are still above 500 by 2 games and 6.5 back in the division.
  • The offense was solid, Polanco had a 3-hit night.
  • Cervele and Bell went yard, but Vasquez gave up the winning HR in the 9th.
  • The Pirates sitting Austin Medows when Marte came back over Polanco might be a mistake.
  • The bullpen is suspect, and the offense has cooled a bit with some brained moves on the base pads.
