The event:  “Spring Break: Destination Education,” staged carnival style at Sony Studios in Culver City, was a star-studded affair that had tweens, teens and their families lining up half an hour early on Saturday. The fourth annual event raised a record-breaking $1.5 million for City Year Los Angeles . The Hollywood hosts: Shemar Moore of “Criminal Minds” posed nearly nonstop for photos, hoisting one guest on his shoulders for a shot. Julie Bowen of “Modern Family” sang the praises of City Year corps members, who devote a year of their lives to serve as tutors, mentors and role models to students who might otherwise drop out of school.

Workers excavating the site of a $100-million Chinatown development have discovered a 100-foot section of Los Angeles' first municipal water system, an ancient maze of brick and wooden pipes and conduits that once fed the city. The 4-foot-diameter brick pipe that was found beneath what once was Little Joe's restaurant is part of the so-called Mother Ditch, or Zanja Madre, that carried water from the Los Angeles River to the young city, its channels twisting and bending along a 90-mile network.

KEY MOMENT: The Angels made three errors - on one first-inning play - to give Detroit a run. Ian Kinsler took off from first base on a full-count pitch that Miguel Cabrera took for ball four. Catcher Hank Conger, thinking it was strike three, tried to gun down Kinsler, but his throw sailed into center field, allowing Kinsler to take third base. Center fielder Mike Trout's throw went over second and bounced behind the mound for error No. 2, allowing Kinsler to score. Pitcher Hector Santiago retrieved Trout's throw and fired wildly past the plate as Kinsler scored, Cabrera taking second on error No. 3. AT THE PLATE: The Angels managed one run and five hits, including Howie Kendrick's two-out run-scoring single in the first inning, in seven innings against Rick Porcello, who entered with a 3-4 record and 8.34 earned-run average in nine starts against the Angels.

DETROIT - Mike Trout was 20 and Bryce Harper was 19 when they played for the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League in 2011. Neither had set foot in the big leagues by then, but it was clear to Angels catcher Hank Conger, a Scorpions teammate, that both outfielders were destined for greatness. "It was one of those things where you see them, you know they're young, and you know they're really good," Conger said before a 2-1 loss Sunday to the Detroit Tigers in Comerica Park.

DETROIT - Mark McGwire was in the twilight of his career in 2001, willing his broken-down body through one final season with the St. Louis Cardinals, when a strapping young buck named Albert Pujols, just two years removed from being the 402nd overall pick in the draft, started tearing it up in spring training. Bobby Bonilla was slated to be the Cardinals' left fielder, but when Bonilla was hurt that spring, McGwire practically commandeered the lineup card from Manager Tony La Russa.

Robert Olsen, a critically acclaimed artist known for his luminescent paintings of outdoor urban objects such as gas pumps and ATMs, would drive around Los Angeles all night looking for interesting items to photograph and then later paint. "I try to isolate the ubiquitous," Olsen said to a reporter who accompanied him on a drive for a 2002 Los Angeles Times article . "I like to look at these things as mathematical models. " Times art critic Christopher Knight chose Olsen, whose works almost never portrayed humans, as one of L.A.'s top painters under 45 . "The pictures have the specificity and presence of portraiture," Knight wrote in 2007, "resonating with the bleak beauty of American life today.

DETROIT -- Saturday was not a good day for the Angels, who got a leadoff home run from J.B. Shuck and nothing else against Detroit co-ace Max Scherzer in a 5-2 loss that ended their improbable winning streak over the Tigers at 10 games dating to September 2012. It was not a good day for Angels center fielder Mike Trout, 22, who made history of a different sort with the first four-strikeout game of his career, three against Scherzer and one against closer Joe Nathan. It was not a very good day for the umpires, who missed two calls on the bases.

The Golden State Warriors choked. One of them did, anyway. Klay Thompson was talking to reporters after the game when he accidentally inhaled the deodorant spray Draymond Green was using two lockers away. Thompson's eyes watered and he coughed for a bit as he touched his throat. It was a momentary setback, nothing compared to what the Clippers experienced in a 109-105 loss Saturday to Golden State in a playoff opener. The Warriors were supposed to get beat without shot-blocking rebounder Andrew Bogut.

Tigers 5, Angels 2 KEY MOMENT: With runners on second and third and two outs in the top of the fourth inning, right-hander Max Scherzer struck out Erick Aybar swinging to end the inning and preserve a 3-1 lead. A hit by the Angels shortstop in that situation would have tied and changed the complexion of the game. BOX SCORE: Tigers 5, Angels 2 AT THE PLATE: The Angels managed only four hits, but two were home runs, a shot to right field by J.B. Shuck to lead off the game and a ninth-inning shot to left field that gave Albert Pujols 498. The Angels lead the major leagues with 29 home runs.

Dancer-choreographer Danielle Agami, artistic director of Ate9 Dance Company, dislikes voice mail, cameras and mirrors. Indeed, for someone whose career is so body-centric, the mirror has been noticeably absent in her dance practice for more than a decade. But Israeli-born Agami, 29, has never been one to hew to tradition. When her eight-member troupe premieres her latest full-evening work, "Mouth to Mouth," at Los Angeles Theatre Center April 26 and May 3, expect a supremely idiosyncratic performance.
