It’s the same weak spir...

Our privates have gone public

The Wife and I are creatures of habit. At 6:30 p.m., we watch Lester on channel 4, immediately followed by “Jeopardy!” on channel 7. This is old people’s television and I’m not too proud to admit it. Even if I was too proud, the commercials are a dead giveaway: every other ad is for some kind of pill to treat something I’m sure I have or will have, including memory-enhancers, which would help enormously while The Wife and I fumble for answers during “Jeopardy!” “That guy who was in that movie we...

Dodgers’ Walker Buehler getting job done without usual strikeouts

SAN DIEGO — The Dodgers have won each of Walker Buehler’s three starts so far and only Dustin May (1.78) has a lower ERA on the Dodgers’ staff than Buehler’s 2.00 in more innings. But something has been missing from Buehler’s game this season. “I’d like to start striking some guys out,” Buehler said, putting his finger on a surprising element missing from his early-season numbers. Buehler has gone six innings in each of his first three starts but has struck out just 12 in those 18 innings, a 6.0...

The Wolverines had a 29-point lead heading into the fourth quarter and saw it dwindle down to as little as seven with two minutes to play, but was able to fend of Chaminade’s late surge to win 92-84 to take first place in the Mission League, for now. “When Chaminade’s energy...

USC offensive line woes on display in spring game

LOS ANGELES — Usually a spring football game is a moment to assess a team’s status four or five months ahead of the start of the season – where the offense and defense stand, who might be on track for a breakout season and what units need to improve before kickoff. But USC’s spring game, and specifically the performance of the offensive line within it, muddied the Trojans’ outlook rather than providing clarity. The USC offensive line, split across the “Cardinal” and “Gold” teams Saturday at the ...

Angels game postponed Saturday because of Twins COVID-19 situation

ANAHEIM — The Angels game against the Minnesota Twins scheduled for Saturday night was postponed because of continuing COVID-19 issues within the Twins’ traveling party. There has been no announcement on Sunday’s series finale. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli told reporters after Friday’s game that there was a positive test among the club’s traveling party.

Angels’ Luis Rengifo makes progress with his mental game

ANAHEIM — Luis Rengifo is finally approaching the potential that Joe Maddon sees for him. And the progress has nothing to do with his bat or his glove. “The biggest thing for me with him is that his head was in every pitch,” Maddon said on Saturday, a day after Rengifo made his season debut. “The big thing with Rengifo is is just staying engaged mentally per pitch. The mental mistakes, we need to cut those out. Physically, he’s very gifted. He’s playing with a real good focus, a good look right ...

Procession honors L.A. County deputy, a Norco resident, who died in a traffic crash

Lakers outlast Jazz in OT on Dennis Schröder’s late-game heroics

There’s no time to be picky about wins. Certainly not at a time that the Lakers – whose starting lineup is a fill-in-the-blank adventure from night-to-night – are facing right now. The Utah Jazz presented the Lakers with a golden opportunity for a Saturday matinee victory, but it took a nail-biting regulation finish and overtime to pull it out, 127-115. While Andre Drummond led the team with 27 points, it was Dennis Schröder who starred at the finish – scoring 25 points, including the game-tying...

Rams fans get a look inside SoFi Stadium, with visions of Super Bowl LVI

INGLEWOOD — Before now, the closest Paul Valencia got to a seat in SoFi Stadium was watching Rams home games last season from his couch in Glendora. “It was sad,” Valencia said, “to have this beautiful stadium without us fans to cheer them on.” Valencia, a dairy operator, found out what he was missing Saturday when the Rams took advantage of loosened COVID-19 restrictions to let season-ticket holders inside the one-year-old stadium for the first time. “It’s really breathtaking,” Valencia said, l...

Missing hiker found in Bobcat fire burn area is investigated

The search for a 45-year-old hiker from Palmdale who went missing in the rugged terrain of the Angeles National Forest earlier this week had a pleasant ending when rescue crews found him on Tuesday along a remote ridgeline. A photo the hiker, Rene Compean, had texted to a friend was just enough of a clue for search crews, with help from the public, to find him. “They were fortunate they found him when they did,” said John Clearwater, spokesman for the Angeles National Forest. “Temperatures were ...

A Streak Of Sorts

For the first time this season the Wings have posted three wins in a row. To many of the Wings faithful this represents a streak of sorts. Improvement with some consistency, even at a snails pace is better than none, and, the addition of the two new players seems to have sparked the team on a bit. It's the best effort we've seen this season. Vrana scored his first goal as a Wing, which was also the game winner, on a nice feed from Lindstrom as he(Vrana) exited the penalty box, and sk...

A Bad Look

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, The NHL and NHLPA have handled the unprecedented challenges posed over the past 13 months admirably, balancing the well-being of the industry with the safety of those under their charge. But sending the Canucks back to work after the most serious outbreak of COVID-19 encountered by any NHL team so they can dutifully play out the string of a season gone horribly wrong seems a story that belongs under one of those generic headlines we’ve read all ...
