October 3, 2009 | DYLAN HERNANDEZ, ON THE DODGERS
There were times Friday night when the Dodgers looked confused, like when Manny Ramirez readjusted his elbow protector a few steps outside of the batter's box, evidently unaware that he had struck out. There were times when they looked frustrated, like when Matt Kemp leaped in the air, violently threw his helmet to the ground and screamed at first base umpire Doug Eddings, who ruled that he hadn't legged out an infield single. Really? Was this really happening? On the day the Dodgers officially ruled out Hiroki Kuroda for the opening round of the postseason because of a bulging disk in his neck, they dropped a 4-3 decision to the Colorado Rockies, who cut L.A.'s lead in the National League West to one game with two to play.

As the Clippers struggled through a playoff loss in Oakland, the pressure on team owner Donald Sterling mounted Sunday with the release of additional minutes of a racially charged recording and a flurry of denunciations from President Obama, NBA players, fans and even the NAACP that had sought to honor him. The comments about blacks that were attributed to Sterling show "the United States continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and...

Arizona Diamondbacks 7, Dodgers 3 > > > Tucson At the plate: Blake DeWitt's three-run home run in the third inning accounted for the Dodgers' runs. They had only five hits.

Extra bases: The second game of the Dodgers' exhibition series in Taiwan was rained out. The series between the Dodgers' split squad and the Taiwanese All-Stars was scheduled to conclude Saturday night beginning at 10 p.m. PST. Up next: Right-hander Hiroki Kuroda will start Sunday's noon game against the Texas Rangers in Phoenix.

PHOENIX - Inside an industrial building next to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, about a dozen product scouts meet daily to discuss their search for the next Garden Yeti. This is the headquarters for SkyMall, the in-flight catalog that reaches an estimated 600 million travelers a year via the seat pockets of nearly every domestic flight. The yeti is one of the catalog's all-time bestsellers - more than 10,000 statues since the magazine started 24 years ago. Could the next big hit be a foam beach pillow that can conceal two beers?

I have lived and died with every Trojan game for 45 years. I have seen the Trojans lose some real heartbreakers. But it hurts much more when "we" lose them the way "we" are losing them now. Any team of similar strength knows that if they play fairly mistake-free football, the Trojans will give it away. Get Fred Akers. Get Jim Walden. Beg Marv Goux to come back and coach. Get anyone who has ever prepared a team to play a big game. It's time. NATE WILSON Rowland Heights

Familiar problems resurfaced Thursday for the Dodgers and their manager. Brian Wilson again didn't resemble the pitcher he was last season, as he was charged with four runs in the ninth inning of a 7-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. There were problems aside from the continued instability of Wilson, who has already spent 15 days sidelined because of issues with his surgically repaired elbow. BOX SCORE: Philadelphia 7, Dodgers 3 The Dodgers made another costly error, this time in the form of a routine bouncer hitting first baseman Adrian Gonzalez's glove and dribbling into the outfield.

"Next Goal Wins" is an irresistible underdog story - sports-fan credentials not required. The lively documentary follows the biggest loser in international soccer as it tries to break a 17-year winless streak. To use the word "organization" is putting too fine a point on it: The team in question resides in the South Pacific territory of American Samoa, and the volunteer players are about as far removed as you can get - geographically and every other way - from the business of high-profile, high-stakes athletics.

ON THE MEND: Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to pitch Friday for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly confirmed. The minor league rehabilitation assignment will be the first for Kershaw, who had never been on the disabled list. Kershaw is expected to throw about 55 pitches. Mattingly said the left-hander will pitch in the minor leagues more than once before he returns to the major leagues. ON THE MOUND: The Dodgers ended their losing streak at two games behind Zack Greinke's best start of the season.

There are worse ways to lose a game, not that any would make the Dodgers feel any better about the way they fell, 3-2, to the Philadelphia Phillies in 10 innings Tuesday. It wasn't looking like their sharpest performance of the year, but they had managed to scrape back to tie it and force their fifth extra-inning affair in 21 games. With one out in the 10th, Carlos Ruiz hit a high pop-up to shallow left field. Shortstop Hanley Ramirez retreated, left-fielder Carl Crawford moved in. And you can guess where this is going.

Stephen Curry isn't one to snap at referees. Technical fouls aren't his thing. But his shot hadn't been falling, his team was getting crushed by the Clippers and, yeah, he was angry. So he picked up his first technical foul this season after yelling at a non-call, thinking he was fouled by Chris Paul and/or Blake Griffin on a layup in the Clippers' 138-98 dismantling of the Golden State Warriors. Strange game for Curry, an All-Star who pretty much disappeared as the Clippers took a 26-point halftime lead Monday.

We've all heard the dire pronouncements: U.S. science and technology is losing ground to its global competitors because of a nationwide shortage of scientists and engineers, due primarily to the many failures of K-12 education. But are these gloomy assertions accurate? Nearly all of the independent scholars and analysts who have examined the claims of widespread shortages have found little or no evidence to support them. Salaries in these occupations are generally flat, and unemployment rates are about the same or higher than in others requiring advanced education.

DETROIT -- Saturday was not a good day for the Angels, who got a leadoff home run from J.B. Shuck and nothing else against Detroit co-ace Max Scherzer in a 5-2 loss that ended their improbable winning streak over the Tigers at 10 games dating to September 2012. It was not a good day for Angels center fielder Mike Trout, 22, who made history of a different sort with the first four-strikeout game of his career, three against Scherzer and one against closer Joe Nathan. It was not a very good day for the umpires, who missed two calls on the bases.
