The takeover by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and GS Capital Partners soured in September, when the buyers expressed concern about the audio equipment maker's financial health.

This is what UCLA batters do. They scrap and scuffle and on most days they get enough done. The Bruins could use the 5-3 super-regional victory over Cal State Fullerton on Friday as a training video. Sophomore Eric Filia could star in it. Filia flicked a single to right that broke a 3-3 tie in the 10th inning at Goodwin Field, and when UCLA reliever David Berg threw his 54th and final pitch to strike out Michael Lorenzen, the Bruins were one victory away from going to the College World Series.

Nick Rimando usually has to run the length of the field to celebrate a game-winning goal. This time, the happy mob came to him. Goalkeeper Rimando stopped Clint Dempsey's shootout kick, and D.C. United rode Brian Carroll's successful kick moments earlier to a 4-3 victory over the New England Revolution in front of 21,101 in RFK Stadium on Saturday night and advanced to the MLS Cup. "The goal scorers usually get the good celebration -- the run and jump and all," Rimando said.
