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.

As the Clippers faced off against the Golden State Warriors in an NBA playoff game Sunday, basketball fans and bystanders across Los Angeles grappled with the racist rant attributed to team owner Donald Sterling and shared their thoughts.

He doubted anything substantial would come of the controversy because "he's got more money than the people yelling at him.” “I grew up in the Deep South and old money is always racist money,” Swanson, 38, said.

DALLAS -- Lindy Ruff did an outstanding job in coaching the Stars to the playoffs for the first time since 2008, taking a team that's almost evenly split between veterans and kids and molding it into a competitive group that has pushed the top-seeded Ducks hard throughout the teams' first-round playoff series. For Ruff, who spent the previous 14-plus seasons coaching the Buffalo Sabres, the playoffs have provided a continuing education about his own team and his players' abilities and character.

For all the Donald Sterling issues surrounding the team, the Clippers still have a critical game to play Sunday -- and several gambling sites have them as slight, two-point favorites in Game 4 of their playoff series against the Golden State Warriors. The Clippers squeaked out a 98-96 win in Oakland on Thursday to take a 2-1 lead in the series against the Warriors. But the Clippers have lost 15 of 18 games against the Warriors in the Bay Area. BetUS.com expects a big game from Blake Griffin, with his over-and-under in combined points scored and rebounds at 36 in Game 4. The gaming site also expects a big contribution from Stephen Curry, setting his points scored over-and-under at 23-1/2 for the Warriors' All-Star point guard.

A sign taped on the door of V. Stiviano's duplex near the Beverly Center on Sunday directed visitors to contact her attorney and further stated, "I have no comment. " A woman opened the door slightly and remained behind it while telling a reporter that she was getting ready to go to church and that she had to consult with her lawyer before speaking to the media. A flat-screen TV on the wall was tuned to a basketball game, and a tiny Yorkshire terrier yelped and bandied about. Another woman inside the house, wearing a pink hat with V. Stiviano written on it in white lettering, provided a flier with the attorney's phone number.
