It will be a busy sporting weekend… are you ready? I can tell you that in The Locker Room, we’ll be ready because the Phillies have won seven in a row and six since “replacing” Joe Girardi as manager. Now the Arizona Diamondbacks come to town with two games under the .500 mark, but they are one game behind the Phillies in the National League Wild Cards standings. Additionally, the Diamondbacks’ two best pitchers are on the mound this weekend in Philadelphia: Madison Bumgarner, 2014 World Series MVP and Bishop Eustace Prep in Pennsauken, NJ Graduated Zac Gallen!
Heading into Game 4 Friday night, the Boston Celtics lead the Golden State Warriors 2-1 in the 2022 NBA Finals (listen to Game 4 Friday Night on 973 FM ESPN Radio) while the New York Rangers are down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals after their loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night (you can listen to Game 6 of the ECF NHL Playoffs Saturday night on 973 FM ESPN radio). Also, the 154th Belmont Stakes race is Saturday night; The Belmont is the longest race as the third stage of the Triple Crown at a mile and a half distance. Additionally, the annual Shoprite LPGA Classic is back at Seaview in Galloway. Pete Thompson and I will be there on Sunday for the final round!
We have two big shows scheduled this weekend at The locker room with Billy Schweim because we’ll cover EVERYTHING in a weekend full of sports action!
