Sixers, Phillies respond after TV station throws shade following Markelle Fultz's first pitch

Sixers, Phillies respond after TV station throws shade following Markelle Fultz's first pitch

Whoa, that's a low blow.

FOX Sports South & FOX Sports Southeast took a shot at the Sixers on Monday after Markelle Fultz threw out the first pitch ahead of the Phillies-Braves game at Citizens Bank Park.

The station felt the need to throw some shade at the Sixers by cracking a joke about the injury history of the team's recent draft picks. Here's what they tweeted.

Not cool, man.

The Phillies and Sixers didn't go quietly, quickly putting this to bed.

The Braves were swept by the Phillies in four games, as they limp home to Atlanta.

Sixers players react to Gordon Hayward's horrific leg injury

You absolutely hate to see it.

That's how the sports world felt Tuesday night when Celtics small forward Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome leg injury during the NBA opener against the Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.

The injury, which is graphic, can be seen here. Hayward has been diagnosed with a fractured left ankle.

Instantly, an outpouring of support spread across the NBA.

Here is some reaction from Sixers players:

Eagles rookie Sidney Jones knows about tough injuries. He's recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.

And the terrible injury produced some powerful scenes and images.

Nolan Patrick shows his wizardry with through-the-legs pass for goal

We've heard so much about Nolan Patrick's vision and passing ability.

Now we know why.

Patrick on Tuesday delivered the first jaw-dropping highlight of his NHL career when he slickly dropped a pass through his legs for a trailing Dale Weise, who finished the play with the Flyers' fourth second-period goal of the night (see observations).

You can watch the play in the video above … and just, wow.

Patrick, only 19 years old, does it so naturally and without even looking — at all — in Weise's direction.

Some Flyers were seen on the bench smiling in amazement of the teenager.

And it probably won't be the only time.
