KEY MOMENT: The Angels were in position to hand Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka his first loss since Aug. 19, 2012, and end his 31-game win streak dating back to Japan. But Garrett Richards' two-seam fastball to Mark Teixeira didn't sink, and a pitch the right-hander called the "one mistake I made" was crushed for a solo homer into the second deck in right field, tying the score, 2-2, in the seventh inning. AT THE PLATE: The Angels scored in the fourth on Erick Aybar's double, Ian Stewart's hit by pitch, Chris Iannetta's walk and J.B. Shuck's run-scoring fielder's choice.

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.

Blame it on missed shots. Blame it on it being a game the Clippers didn't have to win. Or blame it on the Donald Sterling distraction. But wherever you place the blame, the realization is this first-round playoff is now a best-of-three series. The Golden State Warriors pretty easily dominated the Clippers, 118-97, at Oracle Arena in Oakland on Sunday afternoon. The best-of-seven series is now tied, 2-2. Game 5 will be Tuesday night at Staples Center. If the series goes to a deciding seventh game it will be Saturday at Staples.

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.

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.

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.

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.

NEW YORK - A potential make-or-break trip to Detroit, Washington and New York did not make or break the Angels, whose slip-through-the-fingers 3-2 loss in Yankee Stadium on Sunday night left them with a 4-5 record on the challenging nine-game swing. But could it define them? The Angels are 11-13 and 3 1/2 games back in the American League West, hardly a torrid start but an improvement over last April, when they were 9-15 and 6 1/2 games back through 24 games. BOX SCORE: N.Y. Yankees 3, Angels 2 Though they lost cleanup batter Josh Hamilton to a thumb injury on April 8 and leadoff man Kole Calhoun to an ankle sprain on April 15, the Angels lead the major leagues with 37 homers, and they began Sunday ranked second in the AL in runs (128)

OAKLAND - The Clippers seemed weighed down Sunday afternoon in Game 4 by all the controversy that has engulfed them. And even though it was not of their own making, but that of owner Donald Sterling, the Clippers were in the storm and tried to stay afloat. But they could not avoid their albatross and a hot Golden State team, dropping a 118-97 decision to the Warriors at Oracle Arena. BOX SCORE: Golden State Warriors 118, Clippers 97 Instead of talking about the best-of-seven first-round series being tied at 2-2 or about regaining home-court advantage with their Game 3 win, the Clippers had to talk about Sterling's alleged racist comments about African Americans.

Hyun-Jin Ryu must not like Los Angeles or Dodger Stadium or organist Nancy Bea Hefley. He can't get it going here this season. Away from Dodger Stadium, he's a regular road warrior (3-0, 0.00 earned-run average). At home, he's not even a regular Joe (0-2, 11.08). This strange Jekyll and Hyde routine continued Sunday afternoon, with Ryu giving up six runs in his five-plus innings, leaving the Dodgers 6-1 losers to the Rockies and stuck on 9,999 franchise wins. The Dodgers finished 4-6 on their 10-game homestand, and after a day off Monday open a nine-game road trip Tuesday in Minnesota.

Hanley Ramirez was smiling Sunday. Clayton Kershaw wasn't. Whereas Ramirez was able to pinch-hit a day after he bruised his surgically repaired right thumb, Kershaw was informed by the Dodgers he would pitch in another minor league game before making his return from the disabled list. Asked whether he was fine with the team's decision, Kershaw replied, "Not really. " Sidelined because of a strained back muscle, Kershaw hasn't pitched for the Dodgers since the their season opener in Australia on March 22. Kershaw wanted to pitch for the Dodgers on Wednesday in Minnesota.

Matt Kemp suddenly found himself linked to the Donald Sterling scandal Sunday. In the hours leading up to the Dodgers' 6-1 defeat by the Colorado Rockies, the celebrity gossip site TMZ released a second audio recording of what was said to be a conversation between the Clippers owner and a woman described in court filings as his girlfriend. The female voice in the recording promised to remove from her Instagram account a picture of her with Kemp. On a recorded conversation released earlier, a man identified as Sterling chided a female friend for "associating with black people.

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.

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.

DALLAS - The Ducks have been here before, and not just in the physical sense. Of course they've been to American Airlines Center, where they lost the third and fourth games of their playoff series against the Dallas Stars and surrendered the edge they'd earned by winning the first two games at home. But by overpowering Dallas, 6-2, at Honda Center on Friday, the Ducks took a 3-2 series lead and moved into position to close out the series Sunday. They've been there, too, needing a road win to wrap up a playoff series, but didn't do it. It was just last season.

Brian Wilson's not right and it's time to worry, baby. Everything seems a struggle for Wilson right now, and it was never more evident than Thursday night when he was charged with four runs in the ninth inning that led the Phillies to a 7-3 victory over the Dodgers before a sellout crowd of 51,699 at Dodger Stadium. Wilson hasn't looked like the Wilson who arrived late last season -- and was just short of a sensation, going 2-1 with a 0.66 earned-run average and 0.87 WHIP. He spent a 15-day stint on the disabled list with what the Dodgers called nerve irritation, but was really more for him to build up arm strength.
