Welcome to "Number One Says," the weekly segment that hits harder than a Yankee facing Angels pitching!
Number One says:
Tonight could be the night for the Pittsburgh Penguins, as they are one win away from winning their fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history. The Pens are up 3-1 in the Stanley Cup Final over the San Jose Sharks, but even with the big lead, the series has been close throughout. Three of the four games were decided by one goal, with two of the three needing OT. The Penguins have never clinched the Cup on home ice, having won their three Cups in Minnesota, Chicago, and Detroit. If San Jose survives tonight, Game Six will be back in the Bay Area on Sunday. Game Seven, if needed, will be in Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
Last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers fought back against the Warriors and the biased officials and did what everyone expected them to do, blow out the undertalented Warriors, 120-90, in Game Three of the NBA Finals. The Warriors still lead, 2-1, thanks of course to the refs keeping Curry on the FT line. Historically, this is only the third NBA Finals game won by Cleveland, with all of them coming against GS. Game Four of the NBA Finals takes place tomorrow night in Cleveland.
The Bronx Bombers have been doing what we do best: hit balls out of the park! Our current series against the Angels has seen the Yankees hit nine HRs in the three games played, with four of them coming last night as part of a 12-6 victory. The last game of the set takes place tonight, and after that, the Yankees face the Tigers in a three-game weekend series.
The Phillies are not messing around this season. Many expected them to go through the motions for another year, but entering today, the Phils are 29-31, only two games under .500. And with the Braves being, well, the Braves, the Phils won't be in last place anytime soon. It's still early (it's only the second week of June) for the Phils, and they have plenty of time to make what could be a playoff run. Which brings us to...
The #1 Burning Question of the Week: Will the Phillies reach the playoffs?
