MLB scores, Wendell Scott & NASCAR, Bobby Petrino & Quick News & Notes: 4/13, Vol. 120, 2nd Edt'n

I Love You, I Love You, I love you more today, because You cared for me in such a special way….that's why I praise You, I lift You up and I magnify Your name, that's why my heart is filled with praise! Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!

Major League Baseball was swinging the bats last night with nine games on tap as the Detroit Tigers demolished the Tampa Bay Rays 7-2 with four runs driven in by Brennan Boesch, the Arizona Diamondbacks out swung the San Diego Padres 3-1 as Ian Kennedy won his second game of the early season, the LA Angels put up 9 runs, but the problem was the Minnesota Twins had 10 as Joe Mauer drove in three runs, the LA Dodgers got past the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2 as Chris Capuano won his opening debut game with his new team, the Texas Rangers knocked off the Seattle Mariners 5-3 with a homerun from Michael Young, while the Washington Nationals eked out a one run win 3-2 over the Cincinnati Reds in ten innings, the Chicago Cubs literally spanked and SHUT OUT the Milwaukee Brewers 8-0 as apparently everybody on the team scored a run! The San Francisco Giants got past the Colorado Rockies 4-2 with runs batted in by Melky Cabrera and the Miami Marlins were defeated by the Philadelphia Phillies 3-1 as Ty Wigginton and Shane Victorino each launched home runs.

In sporting news, he only had one victory, which came in 1963 at Speedway Park in Jacksonville, FL, during his 495 career starts, but Wendell Scott, the former taxi driver, became the first African-American to become a full-time competitor in NASCAR. Scott ranked 33rd on the list for career starts and he also amassed 20 top five finishes along with 147 top 10 finishes.  In 1999, Scott was inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and as of yesterday, Scott headlined nominees to be inducted into the 2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame class, becoming the first African-American to do so.

For your second segment quick news and notes, worried about his fate, Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino asked colleagues whether he was going to be fired while simultaneously wondering if an investigation would uncover the content of his frequent cellphone texts to Jessica Dorrell, according to documents released Thursday night, Vancouver Canucks right wing Byron Bitz was suspended two games for a hard hit Wednesday night on Los Angeles Kings left wing Kyle Clifford, the league announced on Thursday and finally, Los Angeles Dodgers' Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully is improving and could return to the booth as early as Saturday, a team official said during Thursday night's game.
