All I can say is, wow. This battle continued all offseason with no breaks in between and finally, he is reaping the fruits of his labor months later. Tuesday afternoon, Auburn Football head coach, Gus Malzahn, named true freshman, Bo Nix as his go-to-guy around 2:30pm. Nix, who’s dad is Patrick Nix, a former Auburn quarterback, has high expectations in 2019 and I have no doubt at all that he has what it takes to play to the best of his ability, week-in and week-out. His arm is certainly something to behold, and his legs aren’t too shabby either. Personally, I feel like Malzahn has made the best possible choice that will definitely help the program and the university as a whole. Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over, Auburn has named the former Mr. Football as their quarterback.
Just 15 hours after blowing a save and snapping their eight-game winning streak, Brian Snitker and his Atlanta Braves entered the Sunday matinee with a bitter taste in their mouths, a taste they hadn’t faced since June 6 at Pittsburgh. The Braves were determined to defeat the Philadelphia Phillies and strengthen what had appeared to be a death grip on the National League East division over the past few days. Not only did the Braves defeat the Phillies, they demolished them. To the tune of 15 runs on 19 over a nine-inning span. We are now seven games into this 10-game home stand and Atlanta has a 6-1 record over that seven game span. The Philadelphia series was much anticipated and it was evident. In that 3-game series alone, a total of 126,423 spectators entered the gates of SunTrust Park included in that record series attendance was a single-game attendance of 43,593 entered the turnstiles on Saturday, June 15, 2019. The 43,593 is also a SunTrust Park single-game attendance record. Sunday’s win wasn’t for the team or the coaches, it was for the dads. The home stand continues Monday-Wednesday vs. Mets. Game 1 starters: Zack Wheeler at Mike Soroka first pitch is at 7:20pm ET.
