So starting off 10 o'clock this morning, Western Pacific time Sox versus Yanks.
Game one Yet Krystle versus Amigo.
Herman should be really great game.
These two teams never disappoint when they face off against each other.
Just the rivalry alone between the two of them just takes it up a notch.
Um, Milwaukee versus the Cubs.
You have Geo Gonzalez versus Cole Hamels today.
That game gets underway 11:20 a.
Uh, should be really good game.
Both of those teams were fighting for the division and for wild card spots.
So should be really good.

Okay, um, Marlins vs the Tampa Bay Rays 3 10 Pacific time.
Uh, when you say we Who are you talking about, Blake? Oh, yeah, but you know it.
Sox, Yanks heated rivalry.
So one game you might lose 13 to 3.
Next game, you might win 15 to 1.
You know, that's just how it is.

And, uh, White Sox versus Filly starting at 44 o'clock games Now.

Oh, national versus the Diamondbacks.
Uh, Diamondbacks, obviously.
We're sellers at the trade deadline, sending Greinke over to the actual for four prospects.
Uh, so, you know, pretty much given up on this year.
And the nationals, maybe a couple movements to try to improve.
They are going for it this year.
They are one of the leaders in that NL East fighting alongside the Braves and the Phillies. There.
Try to win the division, uh, giants versus the Rockies at five o'clock, and, um That should be a great game there.
Louis versus Oakland at 6 p.m.
Pacific time with Hudson on the mound.
He's 10 and five on the on the year with Fires nine and three on the mound for the A's going for win number 10 on the year.
That should be a great game.

One of why favorite games there on the day.
Quantrill for the Padres Pigeon and Walker Bueller with a nine to record going for win number 10.
Doing what he does best.
Got home run number 36.
Trying to keep an eye on my technical statistics.
They're making sure everything's good.
As saw the video go look choppy.
No, everything looks good on my end.
Um, I apologize if you get near me.
Um, Hope you can hear me now.
Good, Good, good.
Only three games on the schedule today.
You got the sky versus the dream at four o'clock.
Also at four o'clock is the length versus the fever.
Um, this guy should take on the dream.
It should be cruise control there for the sky.
However, you play to win the game.
So don't go out there thinking you know this breeze past him, and then don't go out there and do what you're supposed to do.
Get out there and do it.
Um, the links vs favorites should be a great game there as they're both mid level teams in the standings.
And then at five o'clock, the Las Vegas Aces will take off the Dallas Wings.
Um Dallas, of course.
Uh, I'm in to wn ba, but let's go ahead.
Talk about the cubs and why they play day games.
Unless you wanted to say that for extreme for you to do? No.
So you have it aces getting, uh, Liz Cambage from the wings earlier.
Um, Alright, here we go.
Lake is gonna tell us why the cubs play day games, right? Yes, it was.
Rigby played predominately day games until they got lights.
Kind of hard to play in that game.
No lights. Right.
Um, so they mostly played at 1 20 So is it just because Major League baseball just kept up? The tradition are okay? Yeah.
Who doesn't want to get a game in the middle of the afternoon and get home to your family and spend some time with the kids and wife.
And yeah, what everybody else blessing there but out there on the field, play in the game? Um, so, yeah, do you have it? The Cubs play day games because they didn't have lights until you said 1988.
So they do get a, uh, August 1988 with first time that cubs played at night.
Um, you I think they would have had it sooner, especially with all the other stadiums getting lights as they were building the stadium on everything.
Um, but it probably had to go the probably to get the approval of the neighborhood to get the lights put on, huh? Okay.
So, going on to soccer, Well, we'll come back to the cup thing here in a minute.
Um, I might even do it.
A lot of research and talk about why the Cubs didn't have lights until 1988.
Um, probably, uh, not tomorrow, but next week when I have extra time.
There's a full slate of games for the English League championship.
I mean, it's still one older state you'd think between Wrigley, Fenway and Dodger Stadium.
Those of the last of the old school stadiums and everybody else's got new stadiums and Dodgers Air are looking to upgrade their stated.
They're putting $100,000,000 into their stadium to revamp it.
Make it more fan friendly.
International Champions Cup continues on today with Manchester United versus A C Milan.
That's gonna be on ESPN two.
The German Super Cup takes place today versus Dorfman and Bayern Munich.
Um, the French Super Cup got kickoff underway earlier.
P S G did win that 1 to 21 MLS has a bunch of games on today as well.
The key game for MLS today is the Atlanta United versus L.
A. Galaxy at 2 p.m.
Both those two teams, or top three in their conferences and are looking to solidify their position in the er playoffs seedings.
Uh, so that just leaves UFC fight night for me to talk about, um, great card for tonight If you get a chance to watch it.
By all means, actually, actually, this afternoon it gets kicked off.
Eso So Kobe Covington versus Robbie Lawler.
That is the main event.
Uh, Covington looking to make a title push.
He's 14 1 overall.
His last four fights were unanimous decisions.
Um, does our house was his most recent, but I was back in June of last year.
Where is Robbie Lawler is 28 13 including 20 now knockouts.
Um, he's got back to back losses than the last one.
Uh, last, uh hey, unanimous decision lost too.
Uh, those are just a December of two dozen 17 A.
He submitted to a choke in March of this year.
So he's neither one of these fighters of, uh good. Yeah.
Uh, Atlanta vs, uh, galaxy looks to be the most promising.
Everybody else is either.
Like a top seed versus bottom.
See two middle seats to bottom seas, but, uh, Atlanta L a galaxy.
That should be the best match up there.
You can't go wrong with a football club carrying Acosta.
Welcome to the broadcast.
Thank you for joining, but I do appreciate all the support from everybody, especially the ones that jump in and create a sportscaster account and jump on the live broadcast and converse with us.
We love the interaction.
Um, I see Covington taking this one.
I don't think it's even close.
Um, Robbie Lawler is He's a good fighter.
I just I just like coming in a little better in this match up here.
Um, Jim Miller versus Clay Guida.
His last fight was in.
Uh, yeah, these fighters, man.
They take some time off.
You would take it If you don't have a bill, you wanna push in? Push in. Push.
His last fight was in April, too.
Too bad rear naked.
Choke in the 1st 1st round there.
Um, winning that fight a greeting.
His last fight was get B J. Penn.
And it was unanimous decision there.
So, um, that was back in May.
This one should also be a good fight.
I like greed or better than Miller here, but it's gonna be a close fight, I think.
Unless somebody flips up and leaves himself open for a quick submission, I think this is gonna go the distance here.
Um, Joaquin Silver versus, uh, I'm gonna miss this guy's name up. I apologize.
Nazaret a terrorist.
Um, Silver is 11 to Nice.
Ride has tended to measure its last two fights were unanimous decisions back in, um, October 2018 and July 2018.
So he's taking some time off October.
That's you know, you look at nine, almost 10 months here.
Uh, where is walking? Silver t kill around three beckon December.
And then, um, previous, Right for that was in Estes isn't in January 2018.
That man, these guys take some time off, which I could do that.
Just go to work one day and take cover a couple months off and come back.
I wouldn't have a job if I did that.
Um, Giles versus Oh, goodness.
I'm gonna mess this guy's name of beauty.
I mean, sure, it.
Uh, So Giles is 11 01 His last fight was his only loss.
Does that coming? Um, back in May.
So he's looking to bounce back from his lost and, uh, get back, but on the title push.
Um, Mr it is 28 11.
He also lost in his last fight back in March.
Scott holes in Versace Dung Yung posing his 12 and threes.
Let's fight was against Nick Lentz back in, uh, February.
And then there was a loss.
Uh, my clothes while his record is at 16.
He lost the Devante Smith in February of this year as well.
So, um, just about a week apart from each other on those fights there, Um, Darko does IQ.
Uh, his last fight was a loss to Devin Clark.
That June stows it is 13 to where his career.
He's going up against Kennedy, not even try to say his last name.
Is that, uh okay, I'm gonna try it.
I probably did big time.
Um, Kennedy is six and one overall with his loss being to Paul Craig back in March.
So he's trying to bounce back from that loss as well.
So both of these fighters look into the reverse course after losing in their last fight.
Miranda Granger and Hannah.
Goldie, this is my fight toe watch on the preliminaries here.
I just think this is gonna be the best fight on the preliminary card.
Miranda Granger is six.
And though her last fight wasn't made, um, and the guillotine choke tapped out at 41 seconds in the first round.
Her last fight was back in June.
It was unanimous decision against Callie Robbins.
Um, he's got three straight unanimous decisions.
Um, obviously, they're all wins because she's five, and so on her career.
Uh, Miranda Granger's got three straight submissions in round one.
So, um, if it doesn't get finished in the first round for Miranda Granger looked weird to go the distance.
That's all I have on UFC today.
Should be a great great card.
Oh, get up there and watch it.
