Dodgers' offense muscles up in victory against Chicago

Sun Sep 21, 2014

CHICAGO – At one point Sunday afternoon, Carlos Frias was on the mound, Chris Perez was warming in the Dodgers’ bullpen – and sirens were echoing around Wrigley Field. The sound was coming from a fire station on Waveland Avenue across from Wrigley Field. It was a false alarm as far as the Dodgers were concerned. Their &

Harmonson: Getzlaf makes charity a personal mission

Sun Sep 21, 2014

NEWPORT BEACH – Younger hands hoisted the Stanley Cup, long before they carried all of Ryan Getzlaf’s responsibilities. They aged both with time and the giving they have done, from the occasional punishment he inflicts on opponents who dare challenge one of hockey’s most physical stars to the passes he places perfectly

Locals claim AVP championships in Huntington Beach

Sun Sep 21, 2014

HUNTINGTON BEACH – All weekend, the top seeds in the AVP Championships at Huntington Beach handled their opponents with ease, neither dropping a game en route to the finals. On Sunday both duos were tested and both ended the season as champions. Women’s No.1 Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross beat No.6 Whitney Pavlik and Hea

Angels can't elevate games to Trout's level in loss

Sun Sep 21, 2014

ANAHEIM – Mike Trout reached base four times Sunday in Angel Stadium’s regular-season finale against the Texas Rangers. The rest of his teammates did too, though – in total. And a languid Angels offense produced a solitary run in a 2-1 loss before a season-low crowd of 27,166 fans. Just as he did 11 days before,

Old-school Steelers football sweeps Panthers aside

Sun Sep 21, 2014

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger spent Sunday night relishing in the return of Steelers football. “We were physical on offense, defense, special teams,” Roethlisberger said. And dominating, too, in a 37-19 victory over Carolina on Sunday night. Roethlisberger threw two 7-yard touchdown passes to

Key series with Giants awaits Dodgers this week

Sun Sep 21, 2014

CHICAGO – For all the offseason noise coming from Arizona or the early-season surge in Colorado, these games could have been marked in red ink by the printer. “When you see the schedule comes out and you see those games – obviously you don’t know what’s going to happen,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly s

One bad pitch spoils good day for Angels closer Street

Sun Sep 21, 2014

ANAHEIM – On Saturday night, when he retired three Rangers in order to record his 39th save of 2014, Angels closer Huston Street felt he executed his pitch as intended just three times in 12 total offerings. On Sunday afternoon, when he allowed the go-ahead homer and retired only one of the five Rangers he faced in earning his seco

Woike: Why teams are willing to mortgage their futures

Sun Sep 21, 2014

It was around 2 p.m. or so last Thursday, and not that we needed an excuse, we gathered inside a bar steps from the Pacific Ocean in Hermosa Beach. We weren’t there for the booze. We weren’t there for the views of the water. No, myself and hundreds of others piled inside the bar to get a glimpse of the most famous Stanl

Report: Shoulder injury ends UCLA safety Goforth's season

Sun Sep 21, 2014

LOS ANGELES – A significant UCLA player has apparently been lost to injury. No, not that one. Starting safety Randall Goforth will soon have surgeries on both shoulders and will not play again this season, according to report by the Los Angeles Times on Sunday. The news isn’t entirely surprising. Goforth separated his

For defending champion Kings, avoiding injury is goal

Sun Sep 21, 2014

LOS ANGELES – The Kings have only one goal Monday. Win or lose, just stay healthy. Only bad things can happen in the first exhibition game. After three-plus months of inactivity, hamstrings and groins are particularly vulnerable to injury, and even the most innocent-looking hit can ruin a season. The Kings and Arizona Coyot

Heatley says he has a lot to give Ducks

Sun Sep 21, 2014

ANAHEIM – Dany Heatley knows an opportunity when he sees one, which is one of the reasons he signed a discounted one-year contract to play with the Ducks. “I knew there weren’t 20 teams lined up to sign me, let’s just say that,” Heatley said after Sunday’s practice. “But I still think I have a lo

Bullpen falters in Dodgers loss to Chicago

Sat Sep 20, 2014

CHICAGO – Things got pretty messy at Wrigley Field Saturday – not to mention what an afternoon thunderstorm did to the field itself. Storm clouds remain over the Dodgers’ bullpen – the wobbly wheel that threatens to send the Dodgers crashing out of the playoffs when that time comes. Adrian Gonzalez homered

Serra defends its turf, tops Narbonne

Sat Sep 20, 2014

GARDENA – A 7-mile drive down Western Avenue is all that separates the campuses of Narbonne and Serra high schools. There’s history between them. The last time the two football teams met at Narbonne, Serra drove its team flag into the Gauchos’ home turf. That’s why nobody was surprised when Narbonne took its
