General Motors is recalling 26,582 model year 2013 Cadillac SRX crossovers and Buick LaCrosse sedans to fix a software problem that could allow the vehicles' transmissions to slip suddenly from manual to automatic mode. Information posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website said that the software problem may cause the transmissions to inadvertently shift to sport mode, removing any transmission-related engine braking effect. The NHTSA said that the risks of a crash are increased if engine braking is unexpectedly removed.

There will be big doings for USC athletics Saturday at the Coliseum. And no, Matt Barkley did not get another year of eligibility. This has to do with lacrosse, which brings to mind one of two things for most of us: a medium-sized city in Wisconsin or a sport with sticks. Sticks it will be. Also, a beginning. USC will play its first-ever NCAA game, at 3 p.m., in a sport that is a big deal in the East and barely on the radar in these parts. It will be women's lacrosse, 12 scholarships spread among 26 student athletes.

BALTIMORE — Inside a converted warehouse in the Pigtown neighborhood here, designers and engineers dream up and test equipment for one of the nation's fastest-growing sports. They follow in the footsteps of company founder Richard B.C. Tucker, a lacrosse player and 1951 graduate of Baltimore's Johns Hopkins University who revolutionized the lacrosse stick 42 years ago and forever changed the sport. Today STX claims the biggest share of the U.S. lacrosse equipment market.

To all the high school pitchers who keep winning games but get no love from the pro baseball scouts because they don't fit into the required mold (a.k.a, throw 90 mph), let me introduce you to your future hero, left-hander Daniel Starkand of Burbank High. "I'm a skinny kid," the 6-foot-4, 170-pound Starkand said. His fastball probably comes in at 83 mph on a good day. He hasn't given up an earned run in his last 46 innings. He ended Arcadia's Pacific League winning streak at 41 games by shutting down the Apaches, 3-0. He has a 4.25 grade-point average and will play for Chapman University next season.
