KEY MOMENT: The Angels were in position to hand Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka his first loss since Aug. 19, 2012, and end his 31-game win streak dating back to Japan. But Garrett Richards' two-seam fastball to Mark Teixeira didn't sink, and a pitch the right-hander called the "one mistake I made" was crushed for a solo homer into the second deck in right field, tying the score, 2-2, in the seventh inning. AT THE PLATE: The Angels scored in the fourth on Erick Aybar's double, Ian Stewart's hit by pitch, Chris Iannetta's walk and J.B. Shuck's run-scoring fielder's choice.

TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY: AT CLEVELAND INDIANS FRIDAY THOUGH SUNDAY: AT TAMPA BAY RAYS It's been a long time since any of the Angels' regulars have played a meaningless game this late in the season, which figures to make the trip to Cleveland especially painful. Entering the weekend the Angels and Indians were a combined 33 games under .500, and the tiny crowds at Cleveland's Progressive Field suggest fans have moved on to football or to contemplating an NBA season without LeBron James . The Angels will rejoin a pennant race briefly when they go to Tampa, but don't expect them to make much of a mark there either.

There was a sense of occasion at the Alex Theater in Glendale on Saturday night when Jeffrey Kahane led the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra in works by Hannah Lash, Chopin and Haydn. The day before, Kahane announced he would be leaving his post after the 2016-17 season, making his run as music director an even 20 years, the longest in the ensemble's history. The farewells began after intermission when the orchestra's executive director, Rachel Fine, announced that at the end of his tenure he would be named the orchestra's first conductor laureate.

Let's begin with what we know. They don't come more likable or approachable than Mark Gubicza, Gooby to his friends, the Angels broadcaster and former pitcher for the Kansas City Royals. As carefree as anyone might appear, he was bubbling over with excitement Tuesday night at Angel Stadium. Big game with Texas, all right, but Gooby is already looking forward to Monday, every mom and dad in the place probably jumping for joy as well if they only knew. "Off the medication Monday," he says, and Gooby's beaming.

Angels: Week Ahead Monday through Wednesday: Kansas City Royals Friday through Sunday: Toronto Blue Jays Time is rapidly running out on the Angels' playoff hopes. But given recent history, it's going to be tough to make up ground any time soon. Although the Angels are six games over .500 in the AL West, they have a losing record against the rest of the league — bad news, given the fact they play only six games in their division over the next month. And beginning with the Blues Jays' series this week, they play 12 consecutive games against clubs with winning records.

NEW YORK - A potential make-or-break trip to Detroit, Washington and New York did not make or break the Angels, whose slip-through-the-fingers 3-2 loss in Yankee Stadium on Sunday night left them with a 4-5 record on the challenging nine-game swing. But could it define them? The Angels are 11-13 and 3 1/2 games back in the American League West, hardly a torrid start but an improvement over last April, when they were 9-15 and 6 1/2 games back through 24 games. BOX SCORE: N.Y. Yankees 3, Angels 2 Though they lost cleanup batter Josh Hamilton to a thumb injury on April 8 and leadoff man Kole Calhoun to an ankle sprain on April 15, the Angels lead the major leagues with 37 homers, and they began Sunday ranked second in the AL in runs (128)

NEW YORK - The Angels promoted one of their top relief-pitching prospects to the big leagues Sunday, calling up right-hander Mike Morin, 22, from triple-A Salt Lake and optioning outfielder Brennan Boesch to triple A. Morin, who is scheduled to arrive in Yankee Stadium by game time, began the season at double-A Arkansas, where he did not allow an earned run in five innings of five games. He was promoted to triple A on April 16, and in four games for Salt Lake, he gave up four earned runs in three innings.

You're the mayor. A guy walks into City Hall and offers to spend half a billion bucks to revitalize property owned by the city, at no cost to the city. What do you say? If you're Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait, you call it a taxpayer giveaway. This is not a knock at Tait. This is a tip of the cap toward a mayor who has been so incredibly successful in framing the debate surrounding the Angels' stadium lease negotiations that the process has ground to a dead halt. It has been six months since the Anaheim City Council voted to approve the framework of a deal designed to keep the Angels in town for the long term, and to determine how to cover the estimated $150 million needed to keep Angel Stadium up and running for the long term.

His is a name that has appeared in this publication's pages hundreds of times - as an author and as a subject. It's a name that calls up notions of the Latino struggle for civil rights and the radical Chicano movement in Los Angeles. It's also a name that initially made filmmaker Phillip Rodriguez groan when someone suggested the life behind the name as a subject for his next documentary. The legacy of former Los Angeles Times reporter and columnist Ruben Salazar has reached folklore heights since the journalist's suspicious death in 1970 at age 42. And therein lies Rodriguez's point of contention.

NEW YORK - The Angels did not require the services of a closer Friday night. An offense that administered a rare beatdown of starter Hiroki Kuroda and pounded reliever Bruce Billings into submission in a 13-1 shellacking of the New York Yankees - the largest-ever margin of victory for the Angels in Yankee Stadium - made sure of that. The Angels crushed four home runs - a two-run shot to center field by Ian Stewart, a solo shot to left by Albert Pujols, a three-run shot to right-center by Erick Aybar and a solo shot to left by Collin Cowgill - to increase their major league-leading total to 35. With five more games this month, the Angels have broken the franchise record of 34 homers in April, set in 2000.

AT THE PLATE: Erick Aybar, who tweaked his stance last Monday so he is more upright in the box, had four hits and four runs. With 11 hits in 17 at-bats in four games, he has raised his average from .175 to .275. Howie Kendrick, who had three hits and scored three runs, is hitting .425 (17 for 40) in his last nine games. Since the start of 2006, Kendrick's .357 mark (74 for 207) against the Yankees is the best among players with at least 200 at-bats against them. Hank Conger had two run-scoring doubles and an RBI single.

NEW YORK -- Ernesto Frieri is out as the Angels' closer for now. Manager Mike Scioscia, as expected, said veteran right-hander Joe Smith will assume the ninth-inning relief role beginning with Friday night's game against the New York Yankees, and the struggling Frieri will pitch in lower-leverage situations. “We want to get Ernie off of that treadmill and let him get an inning or two where he can try to make some adjustments,” Scioscia said. “Historically, Ernie has responded well to this.

Most film productions tend to spend a lot of time shooting a relatively narrow range of subject matter. "One Day on Earth" takes a slightly different approach. "Think globally, film locally" could be the motto for "Earth," a crowd-sourced film project originally founded to document a single 24-hour period with video snapshots from around the world. After holding three such events since 2010, the project's creators are now zooming in further with "Your Day. Your City. Your Future," a similar 24-hour collaboration that will take place across 11 American urban centers, including Los Angeles, and explore the issues and cultures poised to define cities over the next 20 years.
