The Philadelphia Phillies clinched a National League Playoff berth for the second year in a row on Tuesday night. It was the first time the Phillies celebrated a playoff berth at home with their fans since September 18, 2011. "Red October" is back and the Phillies look to recapture the magic that captivated us all last year. The Phillies are 19 games over .500 and are waiting to see who they will host in the first round next week. This Saturday we go “On The Mound” with former Phillies Pitcher Tommy Greene brought to you by the John R. Elliott Hero Campaign for Designated Drivers. Tommy joins The Locker Room with Billy Schweim each week to talk Phillies Baseball.

The Philadelphia Eagles remained undefeated thanks to their win on Monday Night Football. They defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 25-11 thanks in part to the Eagles defensive line dominating. The Eagles defense limited the Bucs to only 41 yards rushing and Eagles Rookie Defensive Lineman Jalen Carter is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with. Running Back D’Andre Swift turned in another outstanding game rushing for 130 yards on 16 attempts.

Every Sunday during the Football season we will be Broadcasting Live at the Caesars Sports Book inside the Tropicana in Atlantic City. We preview the Eagles Week Four matchup with the Washington Commanders and get you ready for the NFL Sunday slate of games.

Plus we will be giving away two $25 gift certificates to Capt’n Chucky’s of Sea Isle City to a lucky listener who answers our trivia questions; Make sure you tune in and then hit up the text board at 609-403-0973.
