KEY MOMENT: Jamey Wright gave up an 11th-inning double to Rockies pinch-hitter Brandon Barnes, after which Wright was replaced by left-hander J.P. Howell. Facing the left-handed-hitting Charlie Blackmon, Howell gave up a run-scoring single that broke a 2-2 stalemate. The run was the first of three in the inning for the Rockies. Adrian Gonzalez closed the gap to 5-4 with a two-run home run in the bottom half of the inning. ON THE MOUND: Josh Beckett pitched what was by far his best game of the season, limiting the Rockies to two runs and four hits over eight innings.

Josh died the other day. It's no big deal--he was old. But he was vigorous and playful and seemed healthy until that last week, when he stopped eating. The vet said he had an infection. He gave Josh some antibiotics and kept him overnight, then a second night and then a third. That's when he first held out the possibility that Josh might not make it ("He's done well for an old dog"), and said he probably would be more comfortable at home where he would have more room.

Charlotte Bobcats power forward Josh McRoberts' hard shot to Miami Heat superstar LeBron James' throat during Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs did not go unnoticed by the NBA. The league on Thursday fined McRoberts $20,000 and upgraded the original call from a personal foul to a flagrant 2, according to the Associated Press. McRoberts hit James in the throat with his forearm as the power forward drove to the basket with 50 seconds left in the fourth quarter as Miami led Charlotte, 97-94.

Three eccentric individuals are stranded in a Boston penthouse apartment during a howling nor'easter. During this S.O.E. (State of Emergency), the temperature outside dips to deadly levels.  But inside, as various shameful secrets are revealed, the psychic atmosphere reaches a fever pitch. Through it all, there's that groaning, snow-laden roof overhead, which threatens to collapse at any moment and obliterate all parties. In her world premiere play, “S.O.E.,” at the Atwater Village Theatre's Speakeasy, playwright Jami Brandli has crafted genuinely offbeat and surprisingly funny characters that a talented cast tears into with gusto.  Unfortunately, flagrantly unresolved plot elements give the uneasy feeling that either one went into a fugue state for a large portion of the play, or the playwright simply didn't bother to tie up loose ends.

Friday marked the final flicker of CBS' "Guiding Light," as that venerable daytime drama logged its farewell hour after 72 years on the air. The last episode took an upbeat, life-affirming tone, complete with a scene that gathered many of the characters at a picnic in the park on a beautiful day. And the closing moments sealed the future of the show's signature on-and-off-again supercouple: Reva (Kim Zimmer, who created the role in 1983) and Josh (Robert Newman, who started on the show in 1981)

As the gleefully funny "Tapeheads" begins, an idealistic John Cusack watches a rock music video with narrowed eyes. It's parading disembodied female flesh like so many chicken wings in a commercial, and its crassness disgusts him. "Inane, mind-rot, stench, Pablum," he stammers. "You could do that!" his more management-minded partner, Josh, says instantly.

I spotted him through the crowd on a busy Thursday evening at Finn McCool's Irish Pub in Santa Monica. He was tall and good-looking. Even better, he was accompanied by two friends, the perfect counterpoint for my own trio, which included my cousin and high school friend, all of us eager to socialize. I ordered a beer from the bartender to be sent his way, a move I had executed exactly once before, and only with some serious encouragement from a much bolder wing woman. Soon the six of us had bellied up to the bar, engaged in introductory conversation.

KEY MOMENT: The Dodgers had a 1-0 lead in the sixth inning, with a man on third base and first base open. The Diamondbacks intentionally walked the left-handed Adrian Gonzalez, so right-hander Josh Collmenter could face the right-handed Yasiel Puig. "I think you have to," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said, "with the way Adrian's been swinging, and with what he did to them last week in Arizona. " Puig hit a three-run home run, estimated at 422 feet. AT THE PLATE: Gonzalez doubled, extending his hitting streak to 15 games.

DETROIT -- Angels third baseman David Freese was scratched from the lineup Friday night because of tightness in his right quadriceps, but the injury is not believed to be serious. Ian Stewart will start in his place against the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. Freese showed some signs of emerging from an early season funk when he singled twice in four at-bats and drove in a run Tuesday night against the Oakland Athletics. But he went hitless in six at-bats in a win over the A's on Wednesday night, his average falling to .151 with a .207 on-base percentage and .208 slugging percentage.

Fans of "The Good Wife," are you missing your Josh Charles fix? The TV hottie hasn't gone far: Just over to Comedy Central for a guest bit on "Inside Amy Schumer" in which he and the funny lady parody HBO's notoriously dramatic series "The Newsroom. " Instead of taking control of a broadcast newsroom, we find Charles spoofing Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy character in a fast-food setting in "The Foodroom. " Like McAvoy, his character is fighting for the soul of America. Unlike McAvoy, he's hoping to do it with french fries.  Schumer squares off against him as another manager in the restaurant, riffing off the role of "News Night With Will McAvoy" exec producer MacKenzie McHale, played by Emily Mortimer.  The fireworks, the passion and the breaking-news drama are all there, in the familiar style "bestowed" upon audiences by "The Newsroom" creator Aaron Sorkin.

The Angels have played three games since cleanup batter Josh Hamilton went on the disabled list. The cleanup batters: David Freese in the first game, Raul Ibanez in the second and Howie Kendrick in the third. Kendrick, the Angels' second baseman, has started 903 career games, 12 in the cleanup spot. For now, Kendrick is likely to be the cleanup batter against left-handed starters, Manager Mike Scioscia said. The Angels like the idea of a left-handed batter behind Albert Pujols and in the cleanup spot against right-handers, Scioscia said.

It sounds silly, but this is New York, and New York teams don't do silly. Yankee left-hander Andy Pettitte is in trouble because of his son's baseball cap. Last week, a photographer snapped a picture of Pettitte and sons Josh and Jared in the dugout at Legends Field in Tampa, Fla. Pettitte thanked him and made sure to get a copy of the photo. Only one problem: 7-year-old Josh was wearing a Met cap. There was a logical reason: Back home in Texas, he plays for a Little League team called the Mets.

Josh Beckett was not great. The Dodgers do not need him to be, and that makes for a pretty great situation for the home team. Think about it. What other team could afford to employ a guy making close to $16 million as a fifth starter, with no shortage of experienced understudies behind him? In his first major league start in 11 months, Beckett lasted four innings, gave up five runs and got no decision in the Dodgers' 7-6 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday in 10 innings. He was long gone by the time Victor Martinez roughed up Kenley Jansen again.

SEATTLE -- Josh Hamilton injured his left thumb sliding head-first into first base Tuesday night, but that didn't prevent the Angels left fielder from giving Major League Baseball two thumbs down to an instant-replay ruling in the fifth inning of the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners. With a runner on second and one out, Corey Hart lofted a fly ball to deep left that Hamilton appeared to catch above his head and pull toward his body, but the ball squirted out on the glove-to-hand transfer and fell to the ground.
