Oscar Pistorius, NASCAR, Sprint Cup Standings, WNBA, AL MLB, US Open Scores/Results: 9/3, Vol. 220, 1st Edition

Sometimes discouraged but not defeated, cast down but not destroyed, there're times I don't understand….but I believe it's turning around for me.  I've had struggles and disappointments and there were times I felt so alone, while some of my friends let me down….but I still believe, it's turning around for me.  Good morning and welcome back to your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema on Gospel Radio better than when you it yesterday! I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y!  Here We Go!

Denny Hamlin captures the
checkered flag under the lights
at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Once, twice, three times a errrrr…..make that four times a win as Denny Hamlin was cruising last night at Atlanta Motor Speedway to capture his 2nd consecutive checkered flag as he held off Jeff Gordon, who desperately needed a win to make the NASCAR’s version of the playoffs.  But with the win, Hamlin has no worries in making the playoffs as he positioned himself 7th in the standings, while Jeff Gordon finished 2nd, Brad Keselowski placed 3rd, Martin Truex, Jr. rolled into 4th place and Kevin Harvick rounds out the top five. 
With another round of racing in tank, the Sprint Cup Standings points shuffled only slightly as Greg Biffle maintained the top spot with 879 points, Dale Earnhardt, Jr is now 2nd with 871 points, Matt Kenseth moves up to the 3rd spot with 858 points, while Jimmie Johnson falls to 4th with 848 and Martin Truex, Jr increased his points to 838, but still but holds down the 5th spot.
The ladies of the WNBA had two games on the hardwood last night as the Angel McCoughtry fresh off a two game suspension brought her A game as she dominated with 24 points off the bench to lead the Atlanta Dream over the Connecticut Sun 87-80 and the LA Sparks lost their 2nd game in row as they were defeated by the Chicago Sky 85-74 as Epiphany Prince, I love saying that name, lead the charge with 17 points and missed a double-double by one assist, as she dished out 9 dimes.
Major League Baseball had plenty of action in both leagues starting with American League as the Baltimore Orioles walloped the New York Yankees 8-3 as Mark Reynolds knocks out 2 homers, the Texas Rangers also pummeled the Cleveland Indians with a score of 8-3 as Jurickson Profar homered in his first plate appearance, the Tampa Bay Rays crushed the Toronto Blue Jays 9-4 as David Price notches his 17th win, the Minnesota Twins lost to the Kansas City Royals 6-4 as they avoid the series sweep, while the Boston Red Sox continued their losing streak against the Oakland A’s 6-2 as Stephen Drew belts his 1st homerun, the LA Angels was defeated 2-1 by the Seattle Mariners with a homer from Jesus Montero and the Chicago White Sox lost against the Detroit Tigers 4-2 as Delmon Young launches his 17th homerun.
The 2012 U. S. Open is getting down to the nitty gritty for the women as 11th seeded Marion Bartoli UPSET 5th seeded Petra Kvitova in 3 sets 1-6, 6-2, 6-0, 7th seeded Samantha Stosur needed only 2 sets to get the win over Laura Robson 6-4, 6-1, while #1 seeded Victoria Azarenka routed Anna Tatishvili 6-2, 6-2 and 3rd seeded Maria Sharapova struggled against 19th seeded Nadia Petrova but prevailed in 3 sets 6-1, 4-6, 6-4.
Alan Oliveira dethrones
Oscar Pistorius in the 200m
First time for everything as the feel good story of the 2012 London Games in Oscar Pistorius lost for the first time in the 200m at the London Para Olympics to Brazilian Alan Oliveira seven tenths of a second and Pistorious expressed his displeasure after the race due to the height advantage that caused him to lose his first 200m race.
