Support our high school sports coverage by becoming a digital subscriber. Subscribe now. SIMI VALLEY – Simi Valley High football coach Jim Benkert didn’t hesitate when asked if this fall’s team would be his best since taking over the program in 2018. “Oh, yea,” he said. “This is the best team I’ve had here.” A large part of that confidence is because of senior quarterback Travis Throckmorton, an Oregon State commit, who will lead the Pioneers for the third straight season under center.

Whicker: Unlike some clubs, the Angels aren’t blowing up the house before it’s built

At least the Angels are not the Cubs, who took a hammer to their own pantheon last week. They shipped out Javy Baez, Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo for a bunch of maybes. You’d think the guys who brought the first world championship in 108 years would be allowed to play out their careers in Wrigley Field, and they’re not that old to begin with. Oh, well. Cue another parade in 2124. At least the Angels are not the Pirates, who had a winning season in 2018. They might still be winners if they hadn’...

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Yan Gomes homered in his Oakland debut, fellow newcomer Starling Marte got three hits and stole three bases, and the Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 8-3 on Sunday. Gomes, acquired from Washington at the trade deadline Friday, hit a two-run homer. Marte joined the A’s a couple of days earlier in a trade with Miami. Daulton Jefferies (1-0) earned his first major league victory, allowing three runs and three hits in five innings. He walked three and struck out three as ...

Ohtani’s RBI, Barria’s Gem Gives Angels 1-0 Victory Over A’s

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Shohei Ohtani ended a long run drought with an RBI double, Jaime Barria outdueled Cole Irvin and the Los Angeles Angels defeated the Oakland Athletics 1-0 on Saturday. The Japanese two-way sensation lined a double to right-center in the third that drove in Matt Thaiss and ended the Angels’ string of 29 straight scoreless innings against the Athletics. It was Ohtani’s 82nd RBI of the season, one behind Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero Jr. for the major league lead. The Angels (5...

Angels blank A’s behind strong start from Jaime Barría

ANAHEIM ― The Angels are temporarily wearing the uniforms the team used from 1973 to 1992, with a sans serif script across the front, a pin stripe down the pant leg, and a red silhouette of the state of California on the left sleeve. Saturday, the Angels won a game from an earlier era. Starting pitcher Jaime Barría scattered four hits across 6 ⅔ scoreless innings in a 1-0 win over the Oakland A’s before an announced crowd of 23,207 at Angel Stadium. The two teams combined for 11 hits and no home...

Still an Angel, Alex Cobb is open to a contract extension

ANAHEIM ― Alex Cobb was still an Angel after Major League Baseball’s trade deadline passed Friday. He’d like to be an Angel a while longer. The right-handed pitcher, on the injured list with a mysterious wrist ailment, said Saturday that he is open to signing a contract extension. Cobb will become a free agent at the end of the season. “I knew this is somewhere I wanted to be months ago ― really from the moment I got traded over here,” said Cobb, whom the Angels acquired in February from the Ori...

Angels blanked by A’s for second night in a row

ANAHEIM — Amid the recurring, and mostly accurate, narrative that the Angels’ pitching has been holding them back, their performance against the Oakland A’s this season has told a slightly different story. The Angels’ 2-0 loss to the A’s on Friday night was the second game in a row in which they didn’t score. They have scored just once in their last four games against the A’s. For the season, the A’s have beaten the Angels in 11 of 14 games, and the Angels have hit just .218 and averaged 2.5 run...

friends and family reunion road trip: day seven: dodgers vs giants!

Yesterday, family and friends from different areas of my life were brought together, through our plans -- and through baseball! We dropped the dogs at the daycare place in the late morning, then headed back to the BART station. (I noticed that regular parking is $3.00, which means the reservation service is double the normal cost.) We took the BART to the Muni Metro. From the train I saw many homes in Oakland with memorial murals for victims of police shootings, painted in ways that would be vis...

Montas Records 10 Strikeouts, Athletics Beat Angels 4-0

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Frankie Montas struck out 10 over seven scoreless innings and Oakland took advantage of some early Los Angeles miscues in Starling Marte’s debut with the Athletics and beat the Angels 4-0 Thursday night. Marte, who was acquired in a trade from the Miami Marlins this week in exchange for left-hander Jesus Luzardo, went 1 for 4 with a walk and scored in the first inning. The A’s scored three times in the opening inning with just one hit. “It always makes you feel good when y...

The San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) has awarded Zūm, a startup that wants to upgrade student transportation, a five-year $150 million contract to modernize its transport service throughout the district. Zūm, which already operates its rideshare-meets-bus service in Oakland, much of Southern California, Seattle, Chicago and Dallas, will be responsible for handling day-to-day operations, transporting 3,500 students across 150 school campuses starting this fall semester.

Dialogue about rape in the 1972 Woody Allen comedy, "Play It Again, Sam."

As I mentioned yesterday, I rewatched this movie, which I'd absolutely loved when it came out. The script is by Woody Allen, who plays an extremely nervous and clumsy man whose wife has left him, and he's desperately looking for love with the help of his married friend, played by Diane Keaton. As the title suggests, there are references to the love triangle in "Casablanca."Much of this movie worked quite well for me today. I even got waves of full-body chills at one point — to my surprise. I tho...

Angels rally twice in victory over Rockies

ANAHEIM ― Whether the Angels wind up buying, selling, or standing pat before Friday’s trade deadline remains to be seen. Give credit where it’s due: the Angels have worked wonders just to make it interesting. On the same day that All-Star first baseman Jared Walsh joined Mike Trout and Anthony Rendon on the injured list, journeyman utility player Phil Gosselin stood in as the Angels’ number-3 hitter. Batting behind Shohei Ohtani – whose MLB-leading 37th home run brought the Angels from behind ea...

Angels have discussed moving Mike Trout off center field

ANAHEIM ― Ten weeks have passed since Mike Trout strained his right calf running the bases on May 17. At the time, the Angels’ center fielder was projected to miss six to eight weeks. Yet as of Tuesday, Manager Joe Maddon said Trout “still doesn’t feel like he could push it right now.” As long as Shohei Ohtani is healthy, the Angels can’t offer Trout the opportunity to ease back into the lineup as a designated hitter. They can, however, offer Trout a different position in the field in hopes of h...

Shohei Ohtani hits 36th home run, but Rockies blow out Angels

ANAHEIM ― ANAHEIM ― Maybe Joe Maddon jinxed it. The Angels’ manager mentioned Tuesday in his pregame session with reporters that he was looking for a low-leverage situation in which to use Mike Mayers, his struggling right-handed reliever. Maddon had just one problem: The Angels had been playing too many close games recently. His starting pitchers had been averaging six innings a game for the month of July, leaving his relief pitchers little room to work. “It’s an absolutely wonderful problem to...

Angels’ Alex Cobb monitoring finger blister, trade deadline

ANAHEIM ― Griffin Canning started for the Angels on July 2 and was optioned to Triple-A after the game. Since then, Angels starting pitchers have a 2.72 earned-run average. Only two teams began the day Tuesday with a lower ERA from their starters in that span. Not coincidentally, health has favored the Angels’ pitching staff. Jaime Barría made a spot start Sunday in order to give Shohei Ohtani an extra day of rest between pitching appearances. Otherwise, Manager Joe Maddon has penciled in the sa...
