♪ still trying to figure out why we showed that. phillies need a well pitched game every night if they're going to win. they don't score many runs. aaron nola had to try and hold the cardinals down tonight. he did. let's go to st. louis. aaron nola seven innings, two hits and one of his seven strike outs right here. no runs but the phillies have to score. and they have to play defense. and they did so in the fourth inning. man on with two outs this would have scored a run that peter bore joyce may not be able to hit but he can play defense. top of the sixth one out the first pitch to ryan howard right down the middle of the plate you're supposed to hit it. he struck out nine of his last 12 at bats hits a homerun right here and the phillies scored the only run and they win the one to nothing. may as well have the cubs within the world series already

to use the eagles moving up to take a quarterback carson wentz says the reason bradford wants out is ridiculous. it's a joke. players at many positions are drafted to possibly take spots from the others. what's bradford different? bradford has to man up. come on, big guy. there is no interest by other teams and now with the draft over, there is nothing that would work for the eagles for this season. his agent was out again on damage control with andrew brant on a pod cast. >> if you're the quarterback, and they traded draft picks in order to get up to pick number two then take a quarterback then there's not really a competiti competition. i mean you're holding the card until uri placed. i'd like to have sam go some place where they've got a good supporting cast and value him. i know people say, well, why doesn't he just compete within the job and, you know, there is no real competition. >> i just shook my head. value him.
