Riverhounds- the Hounds won their first Home Playoff game last Saturday huge 7-nil over top of Birmingham Legion. Niko Brett had 4 goals in the match one was a penalty kick. Other goals by Fisher, Dover, and Mertz. This was a complete domination from the Hounds across the state lines. This week the Hounds have have Louisville City coming into town for a 7pm Kickoff at Highmark Stadium . The Previous 2 matches with the Louisville City the Hounds won at home 1-nil and a 0-0 draw in Louisville. Don’t think this can be called a rubber match. With Louisville only being in the league for the last 4 years, the Hounds lead the series 2-0-6 even though Louisville has the last two championships and last 4 appearances in the finals for the eastern conference . The Hounds have never beat Louisville in Pittsburgh , Just at Slugger Field.
PGA Tour- the PGA is on their Asian Swing, Last week was a historic tournament. Tiger played in the ZoZo Championship and Lead from wire to wire for the win. This was his 82nd all time win on the tour and tied Sam Sneed for the all time record. Tiger held off local and hometown and country favorite Haidki Matsuymama at Accordi Golf at Narashino CC out side of tokyo. This week the Tour goes to Sheshan Golf Club in Shanghai China. Not sure who is all playing, the website is a dick.
Pirates- the Pirates fire GM Neil Huntington the day before they introduce Travis Williams as President. So fare 3 people have been talked about. Ex Blue Jay, Tony LaCava. ( From Pittsburgh, Central Catholic, Pirates 1983 draft). Pull article for the rest.
Nutting said that he also had no plans on selling the team, and was making the moves he did to enhance the organization . Off all the interviews I have seen, he still hasn’t said anything about spending, and such. Though, Travis Williams talked about spending and how it starts from the bottom up and compared the Pirates to the teams like the Brewers, A’s, Royals, Indians and such alike. But also compared to the Yankees, Dodgers, Astros, and those alike form spending within and building the draft picks and building your team that way.. but neither one talked about what happens when a player preformed well and deserves a 100 million dollar contract and paying them.
World Series- Astros sweep in DC with some Boobs in Game 5, Game 6 the Nats looked solid with Strasburg on the hill just like the Stros looked solid with Cole train on the hill. Game 6 Nats Manager Dave Martinez had to be held back and ejected due to interference call ( First Manager ejected in WS since Cox in 92) the Home Team has lost all their games. Game 7 was tonight
Pitt- women’s Volleyball is #2 in the nation
Pitt Football- took a big loss to the Cains last Saturday in crappy weather 16-12. Pitt didn’t get in the End Zone at all during the game and was relegated to 4 Field Goals one 54yard. Miami got in the end zone twice, and had 1 field goal. missed the 2 point conversion with less than 2 mins in the 4th after the go ahead TD. It was a sloppy game from the get go, not only the weather, but Pitts play on the field. The O wasn’t clicking, and the D was solid, but gave up some splash plays which resulted in points. Next week, Pitt heads south to Atlanta to take on Georgia Tech for a 4 pm kick off.
WVU- two weeks ago WVU got shelled by Oklahoma 52-14. Not much to talk about here, WVU is on a down year. now, it doest help that OK lost to K State this past week to add insult to injury. The Eers head to Baylor #12 this week after their buy.
PSU- Played Michigan ST in Lansing last week and came away with the win 28-7. PSU has been rolling all season and have a bit of a test this week going into Minneapolis to take on #13 the Golden Gophers.
ND- The Irish went to the Big House in Crappy Weather and took a whooping 45-14. It was a bad game all over for the Irish, the Offense couldn't get anything going, no one gained ofer 42 yds, and ND tried spreading the ball around like normal, but that didn’t work at all. The D looked like they were stuck in the mud the whole game they had 2 sacks and ) turnovers . Next week the Irish have VT headed into South Bend.
NHL- Penguins, since last weeks Podcast the Pens had a win on the road in Dallas 3-0 over the Stars with goals from Rust, Kahun, and Tanev. All goals came in the 3rd PD with 10 mins left or less in the game. Last night the Pens had the Filthy Flyers in town and handled them 7-0 with goals from (Pull Game) it was a complete game for the most part except for the Power Play. The Pens have the Oilers coming into town this Saturday for the rare 1 pm game before headed out to Boston for a Monday Night game.
NFL- trade Deadline came and left and the Steelers sat idol with not a lot of picks to give upon and only 3 million available under the salary cap.
Steelers— MNF and the Steelers showed up after they cleaned the buss from the sinkhole in the second QT the team finally arrived after the first 25 mins of not playing. With Mason throwing an INT early in first and the Dolphins turning that into points and added 7 more in the first. Now, fortunately , that was all. The Steelers got a field goal in the second off Boz, and then he missed 54 yd one after that. Then words the end, the Steelrs had a hell of a drive starting on their own 2 yd Line and ended with a 45 yd td Pass n run for a TD. The Steeles added 7 more in the 3rd and 10 more in the 4th. Minkah Fitzpatrick had 2 int off his old team, TJ Watt with the Sack, Strip, and Fumble recovery trifecta by himself, and the D was solid for all but the first qt.
