Márquez Strikes Out 9, Rockies Beat Giants 5-2

DENVER (AP) – Germán Márquez struck out nine in efficiently throwing into the eighth inning and benefited from an overturned home-run call as the rolling Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants 5-2 on Tuesday night. The Rockies moved to 8-2 for the second time in franchise history, joining a 2011 team that finished 73-89. Trailing 3-0 in the fifth, the Giants thought they tied it on a three-run homer by Steven Duggar that hit off the top of the wall. A crew chief review overturned the cal...

Lakers blend in Dion Waiters as Rajon Rondo’s rehab progresses

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Just 62 minutes into his Lakers tenure, Dion Waiters has already scored 30 points. That part of the game has always come naturally to Waiters, a career double-digit scorer who has sometimes been on the outs with his teams, but he has always possessed an offensive toolbox. While his 3-point jumper hasn’t been quite as hot (he’s just 3 for 14), Waiters has never been one to lack confidence in his shot. And down two guards, the Lakers need a player like him in the rotation....

Barger objects as LA County supervisors OK new spending on arts, affordable housing

By ELIZABETH MARCELLINO, City News Service The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Aug. 4, approved more than $10 million in new spending for arts grants and affordable housing, just five weeks after signing off on a $34.9 billion budget that includes deep across-the-board cuts to all departments.

Jo Adell’s promotion to Angels means a reduction in playing time for Justin Upton

The start of Jo Adell’s big league career, one that the Angels hope will see him become a franchise player, can be pointed to Justin Upton. Adell, one of the top prospects in all of baseball, was promoted to the big leagues and inserted into the lineup on Tuesday night. It was a move that was inevitable, at some point, but the reason it’s happening right now is that Upton has started the season in a 5-for-37 slump. Manager Joe Maddon said Adell will now be the Angels everyday right fielder, whil...
