Japan beats U.S. 2-0, turns incredible double play to win Olympic softball gold

By RONALD BLUM YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — Japan won its second straight Olympic softball gold medal, beating the United States 2-0 Tuesday in an emotional repeat of its 2008 victory in Beijing that again left the Americans in tears. Yukiko Ueno took a one-hitter into the sixth inning, five days after her 39th birthday, and Japan snuffed out an American rally attempt with an acrobatic double play in the sixth inning that will long be replayed. Japan led 2-0 when Michelle Moultrie singled leading off ...

Angels’ David Fletcher impresses teammates on the field and with ‘confidence through the roof’

MINNEAPOLIS — As David Fletcher’s hitting streak was approaching 20 games, a couple of reporters asked him if he was too superstitious to talk about it. Quite the opposite, in fact. Fletcher said he started doing the math when he got to 13 games, figuring when and where he would break Joe DiMaggio’s record 56-game streak, which has not even been seriously threatened in 80 years. Fletcher was quick to point out the delicious coincidence of his streak being at 55 games on Aug. 16, when the Angels ...

How the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Prince and more became photographic icons

For Gered Mankowitz, a rock ‘n’ roll photographer in England in the ’60s, it was a constant fight to have the pictures he made of artists such as the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and the Small Faces taken seriously. “It was the packaging, it was something to knock off, it was a glossy to be given to a magazine,” Mankowitz says on a recent video call. “And yet I and dozens of my contemporaries were trying so hard to make the best of it, to try and do something special, stretch the genre, and give...

Dodgers commit 2 errors, issue 7 walks in loss to Diamondbacks

LOS ANGELES ― Friday was a bullpen game for the Dodgers. That much was planned. Issuing seven walks and committing two errors against the worst team in baseball? That was all spur of the moment. The Dodgers’ 5-2 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks was difficult to watch. AJ Pollock did most of the damage on offense against his former team. He hit a solo home run in the third inning against Diamondbacks starter Taylor Widener. He led off the seventh inning with a double and scored on a pair of groun...

Mythbusting: Angels’ Shohei Ohtani takes plenty of batting practice, but not on the field

SEATTLE — Yes, Shohei Ohtani takes batting practice. Every day. Angels hitting coach Jeremy Reed wanted to clarify that after a comment he made was taken out of context and circulated online. Reed said on Friday that he was referring to batting practice on the field when he answered a question about Ohtani’s preparation for the Home Run Derby. Ohtani took BP on the field on Opening Day, and he hasn’t done it since. That isn’t that unusual. Mike Trout and Justin Upton also rarely take batting pra...

Dodgers break down in 10th inning, lose to Marlins again

MIAMI — The Clevelander is no more. The music-thumping nightclub with its pool and scantily-clad waitresses once located beyond the left field wall at (now) Loan Depot Park is closed, a victim either of the pandemic or Derek Jeter’s more corporate-minded stewardship of the Miami franchise. But it’s still possible to leave the stadium filled with late-night regrets. For the second consecutive night, the Dodgers’ bullpen surrendered a tie-breaking run in the late innings.

Stronger legs could help Angels’ Anthony Rendon return to form

NEW YORK — Anthony Rendon might finally be making progress back toward being Anthony Rendon Rendon had three hits, including two doubles that left the bat at more than 100 mph, and three walks in games on Monday and Tuesday. Angels hitting coach Jeremy Reed said Rendon, like most hitters, relies heavily on his legs to hit, and the leg issues from fouling a ball off his knee on May 3 contributed to him never quite getting his swing back the way it should be. “His legs are a heavy, heavy part of h...

Justices won’t intervene in dispute over transgender rights and bathrooms

The Supreme Court said Monday it will not take up a dispute over whether transgender students must be allowed to use restrooms that match their gender identities. The justices also added a First Amendment case and an immigration case to their docket for next term, and they ordered a lower court to take a closer look at a wrongful-death lawsuit by the parents of a man who died after police officers pinned him to the ground while he was handcuffed. Those items and others were part of a busy Monda...

Immigration, takings, administrative law and the kitchen sink

The Relist Watch column examines cert petitions that the Supreme Court has “relisted” for its upcoming conference. A short explanation of relists is available here. The last scheduled conference of the Supreme Court’s term — which this term is being held Thursday — is usually one that yields many grants. So perhaps unsurprisingly, the court has relisted 10 cases for this conference. We’ll begin with Patel v. Garland, 20-979, which seems a likely grant, because the government, as respondent, agr...

"Throughout most of the ’60s and ’70s, [Brigid Berlin] dragged her Polaroid 360 and a bulky cassette recorder everywhere, though she once said, 'No picture ever mattered, it was the clicking and pulling out that I loved.'"

Warhol became equally addicted to documentation and, though his pictures became more well known, hers are arguably as revelatory, often the product of double exposures and lighting both flat and vivid, and featuring such friends as Lou Reed, Roy Lichtenstein, Dennis Hopper and Cy Twombly....

No, I don’t think we can anticipate Kawhi Leonard pulling a Willis Reed, limping out of the tunnel and onto the Staples Center court as a capacity crowd roars Friday night.
