Angels 8, Cubs 4 AT THE PLATE: Ian Stewart, who appears to have the edge over several candidates for a reserve spot, sparked a six-run ninth inning with a home run and capped the rally with a run-scoring single. Grant Green (triple), Collin Cowgill (double), J.B. Shuck (single), Shawn O'Malley (run-scoring single) and Abel Baker (two-run single) added hits in the inning. Raul Ibanez hit his second spring home run, and Josh Hamilton doubled. ON THE MOUND: Jered Weaver, pitching in a triple-A game against Milwaukee so the Angels could regulate his workload, gave up four hits, struck out eight and walked one in seven scoreless innings, throwing 102 pitches.

Ian Stewart, 21, of Lake Hughes joined the Marine Corps three years ago to help find himself and was looking forward to returning home next year. The 2001 graduate of Quartz Hill High School had discussed becoming a firefighter but first wanted to travel around Europe and spend more time customizing a four-wheel-drive 2003 GMC Sonoma that he bought this summer.

Ian Stewart hit a tiebreaking home run in the eighth inning, lifting the Colorado Rockies over Cincinnati, 4-3, Monday afternoon and ending the Reds' winning streak at seven games. The National League wild card-leading Rockies won their fourth in a row despite losing Troy Tulowitzki. The shortstop left in the seventh inning after a run-scoring single because of a strained lower back and was listed as day to day. Rafael Betancourt (2-1) pitched a perfect eighth inning and Franklin Morales, filling in for the injured Huston Street, pitched out of a jam to pick up his fourth save in five chances.

You can spend about $950 for the David Bowie memoir "Moonage Daydream," $860 for a Jimi Hendrix experience, $720 for a Queen celebration, $1,000 for an Ian Stewart tribute.... Ian Stewart?

Why is the universe so mathematical? This question, which may never have occurred to you, turns out to be one of the stickiest philosophical conundrums of the day. The short answer is that no one knows the answer. No one knows why mathematics--an invention inside our heads--so accurately describes the physical world, the independent world outside. Eugene Wigner, a Nobel laureate in physics, put the question 35 years ago in an essay titled, "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics."
