    Shohei Othani leads the Dodgers to win on his day in L.A.
    LOS ANGELES — Friday morning, Shohei Ohtani, Dave Roberts and other members of the Dodgers’ organization were at city hall where the Los Angeles City Council declared May 17 “Shohei Ohtani Day” in L.A. for as long as Ohtani plays for the Dodgers.
    Before the game Friday night, Ohtani was asked jokingly if there were any special traditions he would like to establish for Ohtani Day. He played along and laughed off suggestions of gift exchanges or special decorations.

    Sharlize Palacios, UCLA softball rout Grand Canyon in NCAA regional opener
    LOS ANGELES — There’s a softball nesting in the pines right behind Easton Stadium’s right field wall.
    Blame UCLA catcher Sharlize Palacios for that.
    It traveled there off the end of her bat in the second inning to give the Bruins a six-run lead against Grand Canyon. It soared a few feet higher than the second one she hit three innings later, which put an early end to Game 2 of the Los Angeles Regional on Friday night.

    Angels blow out Rangers behind Tyler Anderson, 14-hit attack
    ARLINGTON, Texas — Each time the Angels play a solid game in this disappointing season, Manager Ron Washington says he’s expecting to eventually see those performances with more consistency.
    This is a start. They’ve now managed a two-game winning “streak” each of the last two weeks.
    The Angels beat the Texas Rangers, 9-3, on Friday night with an impressive all-around performance, after beating the St. Louis Cardinals by five runs on Wednesday. Last week’s two-

    The Book Pages: What’s growing on that book cover?
    There are great book covers. And then there are the other ones.
    Certain genres have better covers than others. Romance, with all its bright, illustrated images and pleasantly punning names, is one of my favorites. Science-fiction always has stunning visuals. And business, well, is all-business. (While I don’t really want to learn more about why I lack wealth, I appreciate the blunt cover style of books like, “Money! Now! You!” and could surely use some

    BALTIMORE — His father was a mudder. His mother was a mudder. Yes, this horse loves the slop.
    No, Mystik Dan doesn’t need a sloppy track – or “Seinfeld” character Cosmo Kramer’s comedic endorsement – in the Preakness on Saturday because the Kentucky Derby winner has raced and thrived in all kinds of conditions. But after initial favorite Muth was scratched mid-week and with rain in the forecast potentially mucking up the dirt, Mystik Dan looks like the h

    BALTIMORE — John Velazquez has now won the Black-Eyed Susan a record five times.
    It took him over a decade to secure victory No. 5, but when it happened, Gun Song made it look pretty easy down the stretch.
    Velazquez rode Gun Song to a 3¼-length win Friday at Pimlico Race Course, taking the Black-Eyed Susan for the first time since 2012 with In Lingerie. He also won in 2005, 2003 and 1998.

    He was a fifth-round pick, 129th overall, in last year’s draft as a re-entry selection. He joined goalie Vyacheslav Buteyets (Round 6, No. 178 in 2022) among aspiring Ducks to sign their entry-level deals already this offseason.

    Angels’ pitchers get first-hand look at their own stuff
    ANAHEIM — In the continuing effort to get their pitchers to throw more strikes, the Angels turned to technology to teach the pitchers a lesson.
    The Angels are one of the teams that uses a Trajekt pitching machine, which replicates the precise repertoire of any pitcher. A hitter can see video of the pitcher, and then the ball comes out with velocity, break and spin to mimic the real thing.
    The Angels, though, had their starting pitchers stand in the box against themselves. The point was to

They gather in a buffer zone between two walls with views of the night lights of Tijuana, Mexico, waiting hours for Border Patrol agents while volunteers deliver hot coffee, instant ramen and bandages for busted knees and swollen ankles.

    Galaxy’s Dejan Joveljic approaching another double-digit goal season
    Dejan Joveljic scored six goals last season and it was looked at as a slump, considering his 2022 season.
    In 2022, his first full season with the Galaxy, he scored 11 goals in 32 games.
    Before the start of this season, Joveljic said he wanted to return to being a double-digit goal scorer. He wouldn’t say a specific number, but he’s certainly on his way.
