Many players would be thrilled if even a few weeks of their career mirrored that of probable Hall of Fame member Albert Pujols, but David Freese might be following one part of the script a little too closely. Freese and Pujols have much in common. Both helped the St. Louis Cardinals win World Series titles before moving to Anaheim, Pujols signing with the Angels before 2012 and Freese arriving last off-season in a trade. Like Pujols, Freese is struggling in his first month with his new team.

Re "After suicide, singular grief," Column, June 4 Thanks for Sandy Banks' exploration of the severe emotional distress after the suicide of a loved one. I was shellshocked at the suicide in 1999 of my beloved daughter, Misty. The telephone words, just two, came simply: "She's dead. " And after the crisis, that paralytic chill - a parent's life is never the same. But unlike the family in Banks' column, I felt no guilt, just an unbelieving sense of loss. Today, however, it's more the wistfulness of missing her; for like Banks' respondent said, I understand that "her death taught me to live a better, more meaningful life.

Ernesto Frieri felt as though John Jaso was late on his fastball, so with a 1-and-2 count and a runner aboard in the top of the ninth inning Monday night, the Angels closer, on to protect a one-run lead, tried to throw a two-seam fastball down and away to the left-handed hitter. Instead, the pitch was up and in, and for Angels fans who have followed Jaso during his five-year career with Tampa Bay, Seattle and now Oakland, they could almost predict what happened next. Jaso crushed a pinch-hit, two-run homer well beyond the high wall in right-center field to lift the Athletics to a 3-2 victory in Angel Stadium and spoil a night in which Angels left-hander Hector Santiago threw seven superb one-run, five-hit innings and Albert Pujols hit his 496th home run and a run-scoring single.

Chaminade has a chance to avenge its loss to Serra in the biggest game of the season -- tonight's Southern Section Western Division championship in Gardena. The Eagles (11-2) lost to Serra 36-0 in Mission League play and 30-28 in last year's section final. They are led by Miami-bound quarterback Brad Kaaya, who has thrown for 23 touchdowns and only five interceptions. The top-seeded Cavaliers (13-0) are playing not only for their fourth CIF title in five seasons but possibly a berth in next week's CIF Open division regional playoff game.

What used to be the Yasiel Puig Home Run Watch has turned into the Puig Injury Watch. For the second consecutive game, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly pulled the 22-year-old outfielder from the game because of an aggravated left hip. "This is day to day," Mattingly said after the Dodgers' 3-0 loss to Colorado. "We just have to do a better job of communicating. Guys get banged up, if he needs a day off ... there's no shame in that. " Puig, who was pulled in the fifth inning after grounding out twice, said his condition improved from Thursday, when he was taken out in the eighth inning.

Maserati of North America is recalling 7,438 model year 2005-2008 Quattroportes, model year 2008 GranTurismos, and model year 2008 Alfa Romeo 8Cs for a corrosion problem that could lead to a loss of control of the cars. One of Maserati's slogans is "excellence through passion. " GranTurismos that sold for $120,000 or more when brand new still fetch as much as $68,200 after five years. But even Maserati owners have problems with their cars. PHOTOS: The 10 worst cars ever The rear tie rod assemblies on the cars "may have insufficient anti-corrosion material applied, allowing them to weaken and possibly fail," according to documents on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

Spectral girls and shadow fathers haunt the center and fringes of Veronica Gonzalez Peña's second novel, "The Sad Passions," but this isn't magical realism. These aren't spirits who visit in the middle of the night. These phantom girls and men are living, flesh-and-blood characters shaped by absence and loss, sickness and dead dreams. "The Sad Passions" knows that half-erased people are more devastating than any ghost. Peña's gorgeously dark chronicle revolves around a middle-class Mexican family that seems pretty ordinary, except for Claudia, a young woman who rages with unchecked manic depression.

Peyton Manning struggled Sunday night to come to grips with how the Denver Broncos could blow a 24-point halftime lead at New England on their way to a 34-31 overtime defeat. "You can pile on the disappointment however you want to," Manning told reporters. "I'm disappointed that we lost the game and everything that comes with that. " Asked how difficult it will be to get beyond the loss and get ready for Sunday's game at Kansas City, Manning said that's part of the job. "I think that's the test of football teams," he said.

Question: On March 7, I flew to Sacramento from L.A. for an overnight trip. I packed light - just a dress, belt, shoes, sweats, nightshirt, a bag of toiletries and my iPad. When I arrived at my hotel and opened my bag, there was a notice that the Transportation Security Administration had gone through my luggage. When I was getting dressed, I noticed my belt was missing. I had carefully packed it in the see-through zipper compartment of my suitcase, as I didn't want it to fall out. It was my favorite belt, old, vintage, worn and funky.

The Lakers gave out gas cards, fast-food coupons and casino getaways on fan appreciation night. They couldn't give their fans a victory, much like the rest of the season. The Memphis Grizzlies needed a win to help stay in playoff contention and got it, 102-90, Sunday at Staples Center. BOX SCORE: Grizzlies 102, Lakers 90 The Lakers (25-55) added to their most losses ever and finished 14-27 at home, their worst home record in 66 seasons of the franchise's existence.

The L.A. KISS unraveled during its second home game at Honda Center in Anaheim on Saturday night as it lost, 40-30, to the Cleveland Gladiators. The defense seemed almost nonexistent at times, the offense could not find a rhythm and even the fans seemed to be against them in the third quarter when a sure touchdown throw by quarterback J.J. Raterink to receiver Donovan Morgan was broken up by a fan in the front row who reached over to grab the...

Nobody got hurt. The Lakers didn't lose by 50. There are only three games left. These were reasons for the Lakers to celebrate a 112-95 loss Friday to Golden State at Staples Center. The season that won't ever end is down to a handful of days. Nobody's complaining. No crying. Tension was sucked out of this season a month ago, if not longer. BOX SCORE: Golden State 112, Lakers 95 There's a lot of losing, though, six in a row for the Lakers (25-54) after a late run fell short, extending their team record for losses in a season.

KEY MOMENT: Yasiel Puig had not played since spraining a thumb on a headfirst dive Saturday. But, as the Dodgers loaded the bases with none out in the ninth inning, there was Puig, headed to the on-deck circle and then the plate, as Dodger Stadium went nuts. Puig struck out looking, but the Dodgers scored three runs off Detroit closer Joe Nathan to force extra innings. AT THE PLATE: Carl Crawford had a pair of doubles, Juan Uribe had three singles, and Dee Gordon had two singles.

Western Kentucky turned in a near-record performance against Tennessee but it wasn't anything you'd want to shout to the hilltops. The Hilltoppers committed five turnovers in a six-play span in the first quarter of Saturday's 55-20 loss in Knoxville. It was just the third time in 10 seasons a team has had five turnovers in a quarter.  Oklahoma State had six turnovers in the fourth quarter of the 2010 Cotton Bowl. The FBC record for turnovers on consecutive possessions is seven, set by Florida State in 1972.

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.

It could always be worse. The Lakers could have been pounded into a sad corner of team history with Dwight Howard in Houston's lineup. So they got hit with the next worst thing, losing to the Rockets without the injured Howard, 145-130, and clinching their most miserable win-loss record since moving to Los Angeles in 1960. With four games to go, the Lakers (25-53) already outdid the 1974-75 team that went 30-52. The Lakers keep seeking stability, a main reason team executives Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak recently sat down with Kobe Bryant for a clear-the-air meeting, The Times has learned.
