A former partner at the Los Angeles office of accounting giant KPMG was sentenced to 14 months in federal prison for giving confidential information about his firm's clients to a golfing buddy, who used it to make more than $1 million in profits by trading those companies' stocks. Scott London, 51, pleaded guilty to insider trading last year, admitting that he repeatedly tipped off a friend to the secrets of several KPMG clients, including Herbalife Ltd. and Skechers USA Inc., from 2010 to 2012.

SAN DIEGO -- The former  commanding officer of the famed Blue Angels aerial demonstration team may have not only allowed sexually inappropriate conduct in the workplace but also encouraged it, the Navy said Wednesday. The Navy last week announced that Capt. Gregory McWherter had been relieved of duty as executive officer of Naval Base Coronado because of initial findings of an investigation into misconduct during his tours as commander and flight leader of the Blue Angels.

WASHINGTON - The Angels won't be traveling back in time Wednesday night, but it might feel that way. Instead of flying to New York after their game against the Washington Nationals, they will board a chartered Amtrak train in the nation's capital and ride the rails to Penn Station. “I'm excited, man,” reliever Joe Smith said. “It's like the movie 'The Natural,' when everybody was taking the train. It's one of those forgotten things. I know the stories the older guys tell me, and they say it's a lot of fun. It's something different from getting on a plane.

WASHINGTON -- Albert Pujols was so wired -- and so busy talking and texting friends around baseball -- after hitting his 500th career home run Tuesday night that the Angels slugger didn't get to sleep until about 4 a.m. and managed only three or four hours of sleep, at best. “Trust me, I was trying to sleep,” Pujols said before Wednesday night's series finale against the Washington Nationals. “I knew we had a game today. I'm a bad sleeper no matter what. So, it's not that I need an excuse.

WASHINGTON — Albert Pujols didn't hit his 500th home run in front of a hometown crowd, but at least he was able to hit it to an Angels fan. Tom Sherrill, a 29-year-old Air Force staff sergeant from Pomona who is in town for computer training, retrieved the ball Pujols hit for his milestone homer into the left-center field seats in Nationals Park and presented it to the Angels slugger after the game. "I've been an Angels fan for 20 years, and I had no intentions other than to give the ball to Albert," Sherrill said.

WASHINGTON - The Angels were three outs away from their first series sweep in the nation's capital since 1962, their first winning record in 386 days and a highly anticipated Amtrak train ride to New York City when closer Ernesto Frieri drove them off the rails Wednesday night. Frieri, whose hold on his ninth-inning job was tenuous, failed to protect a three-run lead in a stunning 5-4 walk-off loss to the Washington Nationals, leaving Manager Mike Scioscia little choice but to replace Frieri as closer with setup man Joe Smith.

The number that matters most is not 500. The number that matters most is 0. That is the number of major league players that have hit more home runs this season than Albert Pujols. He got a mighty sweet serenade in the visiting clubhouse in Washington on Tuesday night after he hit his 500th home run. But the Angels are not paying him a quarter-billion dollars for reminders of how great he was when he played for the St. Louis Cardinals. INTERACTIVE: Compare salaries on Angels, Nationals If that really is the classic Pujols back at-bat, that would be a big swing toward an October different from the last two, when he and the Angels stayed home and the Pujols-less Cardinals advanced deep into the playoffs.
