Dodgers dominated by Yu Darvish in loss to Padres

SAN DIEGO — In keeping with the new crackdown on grip-enhancing substances, the umpires checked Padres starter Yu Darvish multiple times during Monday’s game. Like most of the Dodgers hitters, they came up empty. Darvish struck out 11 in six innings, including seven consecutive batters at one point, holding the Dodgers to two hits as a delighted sellout crowd at Petco Park watched the San Diego Padres “Beat L.A.,” 6-2. The latest renewal of this fresh-out-of-the-wrapper rivalry once again was pl...

Albert Pujols on his Dodgers days: ‘This is the most fun that I’ve had in awhile’

SAN DIEGO — The shade stretched all the way up I-5 to Anaheim. “This is the most fun that I’ve had in a while,” Albert Pujols said Monday afternoon about his time with the Dodgers. “I’m having a great time right now, enjoying every moment, And, I’m just glad every time I’m out there I can help this ballclub to win and that’s my goal. I really don’t think ahead and just really focus on the moment and I’m enjoying this moment right now.” On the field, Pujols has been exactly what the Dodgers hoped...

UCLA football receives commitment from four-star WR Jadyn Marshall

Stockton St. Mary’s receiver Jadyn Marshall announced his commitment to the UCLA football program on Monday via Twitter. The tweet included an image of Marshall in a UCLA football and track uniform and the words “Respect my decision!” The addition of the four-star prospect places the Bruins’ 2022 class third among Pac-12 programs and 28th in the nation on the 247sports rankings. Wide receivers coach Jerry Neuheisel was credited with recruiting the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Marshall but the Bruins were...

Alexander: At LAFC, the kids are all right

The continuing argument over the benefits of amateurism, college athletes’ compensation and whether the NCAA is exploitative or simply giving the people what they want … all of that is lost on teenagers Christian Torres, Antonio Leone and Erik Dueñas. They’re soccer players who skipped that step long ago. They are homeschooled high school students who are now also professionals, serving apprenticeships with the Los Angeles Football Club as “homegrown” players with bright futures and an early edu...

Clippers hope adjustments will improve outlook vs. Suns

PHOENIX — One “good, feel-out game” in the books, as Paul George called it, and this Western Conference finals between George’s Clippers and the Phoenix Suns is about as hard to gauge as it was before Sunday’s game, which Phoenix won, 120-114. The fall-behind-and-figure-it-out Clippers might have the second-seeded Suns exactly where they want them (or not), but it’s awfully hard to develop even a working hypothesis for what might happen next without knowing when (or if) All-Stars Kawhi Leonard a...

Inside the Dodgers: The Zach Reks effect

Long time, no newsletter. I know. Checking in today with some breaking news – Zach Reks has been recalled from Oklahoma City in advance of tonight’s game in San Diego – and some bigger-picture perspective to go along with it. If you’re new to this newsletter, that’s usually how this goes. The most interesting aspect of the Dodgers’ roster this season has been their bench – not the most satisfying, not the most electric, but certainly the least predictable. The group has included, at times, 22-ye...

Sparks’ Nneka Ogwumike doesn’t make US women’s basketball Olympic team

LOS ANGELES — Team USA released its women’s basketball roster for the Tokyo Olympics, and again Sparks star Nneka Ogwumike was not on it. The six-time All-Star has yet to play in the Olympics and remains the only WNBA most valuable player to not make an Olympic roster. The currently injured 30-year-old Sparks forward was hoping to be a part of Team USA seeking its Olympic seventh consecutive gold medal. Ogwumike was not part of the gold-medal-winning team at the 2016 Rio Games, the same year she...

Whicker: Want an NCAA revolution? The Supreme Court is here to help

Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh did not have to write a thing. The Supreme Court had already spoken, in 9-0 unanimity. It upheld a district court’s decision in NCAA v. Alston that barred the NCAA from limiting the money an athlete could receive from a college for education-related purposes. It was another paper cut, another hatchet chop against the bloated business of intercollegiate athletics. Then Kavanaugh brought the chainsaw. He wrote a concurring opinion that immediately becomes the bigg...

Suns’ Deandre Ayton welcomes Clippers’ small-ball challenge

PHOENIX — To its credit, Phoenix didn’t spend its week between games frittering away its advantage. While the Clippers labored against top-seeded Utah Jazz for six second-round games, the Suns spent their six days of downtime after sweeping Denver doing homework. So when the Clippers rolled out the small lineup Sunday that’s served them well so far this postseason, Phoenix were prepared. “I mean, that’s what we expected,” Suns star Devin Booker said after their 120-114 victory in Game 1 of the W...

Angels activate José Quintana, send down Chris Rodriguez and Jaime Barria

José Quintana, who struggled as a starter before going on the injured list, has rejoined the Angels’ pitching staff, but it’s not likely that he’s going back into the rotation at this time. Quintana was activated Monday, but the Angels already have Andrew Heaney and Shohei Ohtani scheduled to start the next two games, which suggests Quintana will pitch out of the bullpen. The Angels also sent down relievers Chris Rodriguez and Jaime Barria. They will have make at least one more move before Tuesd...

Angels aim to keep red-hot Justin Upton in leadoff spot

ANAHEIM — Joe Maddon was recently running through the minutiae of his batting order choices for a particular day when he dropped an unexpected name. “I did not want to move Upton. Rickey’s staying put.” Wait, Rickey? After Maddon had finished his lengthy answer about the order, he was asked to go back and clarify his use of the name “Rickey.” “Henderson?” Maddon said with a chuckle. “Leading off: Justin Henderson.” Maddon’s homage to Hall of Famer Rickey Henderson, the greatest leadoff hitter in...

Supreme Court unanimously sides with ex-athletes in NCAA compensation case

WASHINGTON — In a ruling that could help push changes in college athletics, the Supreme Court on Monday unanimously ruled that the NCAA can’t enforce certain rules limiting the education-related benefits — things like computers and graduate scholarships — that colleges offer athletes. The case doesn’t decide whether students can be paid salaries. Instead, the ruling will help determine whether schools decide to offer athletes tens of thousands of dollars in those benefits for things including tu...

In the new Supreme Court case, NCAA v. Alston. It's unanimous. Gorsuch writes the opinion. A snippet:From the start, American colleges and universities have had a complicated relationship with sports and money. In 1852, students from Harvard and Yale participated in what many regard as the Nation’s first intercollegiate competition—a boat race at Lake Winnipesaukee, New Hampshire. But this was no pickup match. A railroad executive sponsored the event to promote train travel to the picturesque la...

Chargers analysis: What we know, what we don’t after minicamp

On the opposite coast of where Tua Tagovailoa threw five interceptions at the Miami Dolphins’ mandatory minicamp, Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was playing catch with his pass-catchers while the defense was on a distant field. At Chargers mandatory minicamp last week, there wasn’t much to scrutinize. There was no need to keep track of passing completions, like Green Bay Packers scribes did for quarterback Jordan Love. Team drills were absent during the open portion to reporters, and when t...

Angels get another Shohei Ohtani homer but lose in 10 innings

ANAHEIM — The latest blast in the Shohei Ohtani Homer Barrage wasn’t enough to get the Angels their sweep. Ohtani hit his sixth homer in six games on Sunday afternoon, but the Angels still lost, 5-3, to the Detroit Tigers in 10 innings, missing their shot to win all four games in the series. Ohtani is tied for the major league lead with 23 homers. That also set a new career-high for Ohtani, who hit 22 in his rookie season in 2018. “It’s pretty incredible, right?” Manager Joe Maddon said. “It’s r...
