NL-MLB Scores & USC Gets Gains Control of the LA Coliseum: 5/15, Vol. 142, 2nd Edition

I can see that it's hurting you, I can feel your pain…it's hard to see the sunshine, through the rain. Oh I know sometimes it seems as if it’s never gonna end, but you'll get through it, but just don't give in!  Welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y! 

USC/LA Colisuem
There were a plethora of games on the diamond in the National League in Major League Baseball as the Colorado Rockies came up short against the San Francisco Giants 3-2 as Gregor Blanco launched his 1st homerun of the season, the Chicago Cubs got past the defending champions St. Louis Cardinals 6-4 as Alfonso Soriano broke up the tied ball game with an RBI in the 8th inning, the San Diego Padres was pasted by  the Washington Nationals 8-5 as Bryce Harper hit his 1st major league homerun, the Philadelphia Phillies dominated the Houston Astros 5-1 as Placido Polanco belted his 1st homerun of the season, but more importantly achieved his 2,000th career hit, the Cincinnati Reds erased the Atlanta Braves 3-1 as Logan Ondrusek notched his 3rd win of the season, while the Milwaukee Brewers lost 3-1 to the New York Mets, the Pittsburgh Pirates cooled off the Miami Marlins and won by a run 3-2 as Brad Lincoln notched his 3rd win of the season and LA Dodgers managed to get a win 3-1 against the Arizona Diamondbacks with a homerun from Andre Ethier.

In sporting news, USC is getting their wish!  In a vote of 8-1, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum commission approved to hand over day-to-day control of the publicly owned stadium to USC on Monday.  The one vote who opposed the agreement was commissioner Bernard C. Parks for reasons unknown at this time.  The coliseum, which is 88 years old, will now have its master lease under the control of USC which had been seeking control for years and it gives the university exclusive right to use, manage and operate the facility.  After rejecting USC’s offer to pay $100 million to renovate the Coliseum four years ago in exchange for the master lease, the commission finally concluded they will not be able to keep their promise last year to USC to make $50 million in improvements.  Now that USC has control of the stadium, they plan to return the Coliseum back to its rich and beautiful condition that once hosted events such as Super Bowls and Summer Olympics.
