Reporting from Boston The Angels' rain-delayed, 5-3, 13-inning win over the Boston Red Sox took so long that … •It started Wednesday and ended Thursday. •The Minnesota Twins, who begin a four-game series at Fenway Park on Friday, had already finished their Wednesday game in Chicago, flown to Boston, checked into the same hotel and were asleep in their rooms when the Angels got back from the ballpark. •Bullpen catcher Tom Gregorio was 33 years old when the game started and 34 when it ended.

Angel ace Jered Weaver came out of Monday's game after 12 pitches, injuring his lower back while throwing a first-inning strike to New York Yankees cleanup hitter Robinson Cano. After delivering a 1-0 pitch, Weaver leaped off the mound in pain. Manager Mike Scioscia and a trainer ran out to Weaver, who tried to talk them into leaving him in the game. But after tossing a warmup pitch to catcher Bobby Wilson, it was obvious Weaver was in too much pain to continue. Frustrated, he walked off the mound and into the clubhouse.

I wasn't rooting for the end of the world over the weekend, though there was some disappointment knowing I had no choice now but to join the Angels. You know — the ones down here who struggle so to be halfway decent Angels. The thing is, there is just nothing going on in Los Angeles, so there's nothing else to write about. I checked the Internet all the way up to game time, a little disappointed Kareem hadn't taken a sledgehammer to Magic or Jerry West's likenesses. It's so bad right now, I found myself looking for some golf tournament or horse race to write about instead of a baseball team that can't score.

Crazy me, I come to Angel Stadium on Sunday, and I don't ordinarily work Sundays, but I'm thinking this is a big game against the Texas Rangers. I figure the Angels must feel the same way because they charge their fans more for games like this. They call it "dynamic pricing. " Monday night's game with the Royals is not so dynamic. Charging more, the Angels not only have a national anthem singer but also TV star Marlee Matlin to sign the anthem. They have also brought out the curvaceous Miss Supercross, Dianna Dahlgren , to stand on the mound as part of first-pitch ceremonies to help wipe out the stinking memory of Ervin Santana , who stood there a day earlier.

A night to remember, or forget? 5 p.m. The Angels had an ex-New York policeman sing the national anthem in the series opener and lost. They went to Joelle James, who I've been saying is the best national anthem singer in Southern California the last four or five years, in Game 2 and won. They brought her back for Game 5 to sing the anthem and "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" in the seventh. Who knew she'd last longer than Bartolo Colon?
