More than simply music, Fiesta Broadway is one of the few opportunities to walk the streets of Los Angeles and feel as if you are actually strolling through any major Latin American city. As such, the event should awaken feelings of nostalgia in anybody born south of the border. The 10th edition held downtown Sunday was business as usual.

It was only a quarterfinal game in the La Canada basketball tournament. It's only December. And the playoffs? They're a whole season away. Yet the smile that Notre Dame High basketball Coach Chris Perez wore symbolized the importance of his team's 62-53 victory over previously undefeated Bishop Montgomery Saturday night. "Our program needed this win," said Perez, whose Knights (6-1) used a 16-2 run in the third quarter to erase a 32-25 deficit. "For us, this was such a great challenge.

Notre Dame High's 73-56 drubbing of arch-rival Crespi in a Mission League boys' basketball game on Friday night at Notre Dame had nothing--yet everything--to do with Gianandrea Marcaccini. The Knights (15-5, 6-1) insist they harbor no ill feelings toward Marcaccini, Crespi's high-scoring senior forward who transferred from Notre Dame last season. Yet stopping Marcaccini proved decisive as Notre Dame rallied to turn a tight game into a rout in the second half.

Notre Dame High Coach Chris Perez knew his team had a difficult task on its hands in facing Bishop Montgomery in the final of the La Canada tournament.

The end of finals week made for some mighty fatigued players during Thursday night's Mission League basketball showdown between Notre Dame and Harvard-Westlake highs.

Harvard (20-1, 8-0), completing a two-game sweep of Notre Dame (15-6, 6-2), moved two games ahead of the Knights with four games to play.

The Oakland Athletics are carrying 31 players on their roster, including only nine who played for them in 2011. Shortstop Cliff Pennington and pitchers Brett Anderson and Jerry Blevins are the only ones around from 2009. :: Yes, Miguel Cabrera has a real shot to win the Triple Crown, but his biggest hurdle is catching Josh Hamilton and Adam Dunn for the home run lead. His 10 career home runs at U.S. Cellular Field are his second most away from home, and he needs only two in the four games this week to surpass his total at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum asked for $21.5 million in salary arbitration Tuesday and was offered $17 million by the club. The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner's request neared the record amount sought in arbitration. Houston Astros pitcher Roger Clemens asked for $22 million in 2005. San Francisco's offer was the highest in arbitration history, topping the $14.25 million the New York Yankees proposed for shortstop Derek Jeter in 2001. === The Detroit Tigers announced that designated hitter Victor Martinez tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during off-season conditioning last week and probably will sit out the 2012 season.

Ryan Braun's bizarre two-strike bunt attempt Tuesday came as the reigning National League most valuable player is getting a reputation as a prima donna. He has complained so much about the odd shadows at Miller Park with the roof open for day games that the Brewers now partially close it, which causes its own problems. The Giants were furious the left side of the infield was bathed in sunshine during a game last week, when a ball third baseman Joaquin Arias didn't see off the bat almost hit him in the head.

CLEVELAND -- The Angels can't hit, most of their relief pitchers can't get anyone out, and now it seems they can't catch a break. With two on, two outs and no score in the bottom of the fifth inning Sunday, Angels right fielder Torii Hunter lost Asdrubal Cabrera's routine fly in the sun, the ball dropping for a two-run error that sent the Cleveland Indians toward 4-0 victory in Progressive Field. Cleveland right-hander Derek Lowe went through the Angels lineup like a chainsaw through kindling, giving up three hits in 7 2/3 shutout innings, striking out one and walking two. The Angels threatened in the eighth inning, loading the bases with two outs when Maicer Izturis walked and Chris Iannetta singled off Lowe, and reliever Vinnie Pestano walked Mike Trout.
