Sounds Drop Series Finale In Memphis, 5-1

 

Koshansky Belts Team-Leading 13th Homer In Loss

Nashville SoundsMemphis, TN – Memphis starting pitcher P.J. Walters used both his arm and his bat to propel the Redbirds to a 5-1 victory over the Nashville Sounds on Sunday afternoon at AutoZone Park in the finale of a five-game series.

Walters (3-2) tossed a quality start, holding the Sounds to one run on seven hits with five strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings, and the right-hander delivered a go-ahead, three-run double from the batter’s box to lead Memphis to the win.

The defeat, which snapped a three-game win streak for the Sounds, was the last of 16 contests between the division rivals in 2010. Nashville (48-42), which took three of five from the Redbirds this weekend, won the season series by a 9-7 margin.

Sounds first baseman Joe Koshansky gave the visitors an early advantage when he led off the second inning with his team-leading 13th longball of the year, a solo shot to right-center off Walters.

Memphis rallied to take a 4-1 lead with a four-run outburst against a pair of Nashville hurlers in the bottom of the sixth. «Read the rest of this article»

I saw Jesus

 

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

JesusI saw Jesus last week. He was wearing blue jeans and an old shirt. He was up at the church building. He was alone and working hard. For just a minute he looked a little like one of our members. But it was Jesus, I could tell by his smile.

I saw Jesus last Sunday. He was teaching a Bible class. He didn’t talk real loud or use long words. But it was Jesus. I could tell by his loving voice.

I saw Jesus yesterday. He was at the hospital visiting a friend who was sick. They prayed together quietly. For just a minute he looked like Brother Jones. But it was Jesus. I could tell by the tears in his eyes.

I saw Jesus this morning. He was in my kitchen making my breakfast and fixing me a special lunch. For just a minute he looked like my mom. But it was Jesus. I could feel the love from his heart. «Read the rest of this article»
