In a story that ran in the Sunday edition of The Times, Adrian Gonzalez talked about what he looks for when studying video of his opponents. Here's Gonzalez's scouting report on Atlanta Braves right-hander Julio Teheran, who will start Game 3 of the National League division series Sunday against the Dodgers: “He's a guy, from what I've seen,  mixes speeds well with his curveball. He's unpredictable with what they call his slider-curveball - it's the same pitch, he just changes speeds on it. His changeup's pretty consistent on the outside corner.

The Texas Rangers signed shortstop Michael Young to a $10-million, four-year contract extension Monday with a club option for a fifth season. Young, 27, volunteered to switch from second base to shortstop when Alfonso Soriano came to the Rangers in the Alex Rodriguez trade with the New York Yankees in February. Texas had been working hard through spring training to re-sign Young to a long-term deal. Young batted .306 last season with career highs in home runs (14) and runs batted in (72).

Once again, the Rams and Raiders won't be meeting in the Super Bowl. How about an ex-Raider vs. an ex-Ram? OK, there's ex-Raider linebacker Matt Millen of the 49ers vs. ex-Ram and ex-UCLA Bruin receiver Michael Young, who helped quarterback John Elway and the Broncos break up Sunday's AFC championship game.

Reporting from Arlington, Texas -- The Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals combined to hit .195 with one home run and eight runs scored in the first two games of the World Series. But with the Series tied at a win apiece, the offense is likely to pick up considerably Saturday when the Series moves from frigid St. Louis to the warmth of Texas and the launching pad the Rangers call home. Batters hit .276 with 228 homers and scored an average of 11 runs a game at Rangers Ballpark this season.

The Dodgers have won in a lot of different ways this season, but they haven't specialized in come-from-behind victories. Before Saturday night, they were 5-38 when trailing after six innings. And there they were in the bottom of the seventh inning, trailing the San Diego Padres, 1-0. But the Dodgers are a veteran club, and they came through on a warm evening. Adrian Gonzalez singled in the tying run in the seventh and, after Skip Schumaker had doubled, Mark Ellis' RBI single in the eighth gave the Dodgers a 2-1 victory before a Dodger Stadium crowd announced at 53,121.

No clinching, no celebration, no taste of the bubbly. The way this month has gone for the Dodgers, did you really expect them to party at first opportunity? Instead of becoming the first team this season to clinch their division, the Dodgers fell 9-4 Wednesday to the Diamondbacks in Phoenix. BOX SCORE: Arizona 9, Dodgers 4 Their last chance to clinch against the Diamondbacks comes Thursday afternoon, then it's on to San Diego. Once baseball's hottest team, the Dodgers are now 7-10 in September.

The Dodgers have gotten more offense out of their pitchers than their third basemen. That makes any news about Chase Headley pertinent to the Dodgers. The new ownership group of the San Diego Padres had been practically invisible all season, until Executive Chairman Ron Fowler popped up Wednesday to tell U-T San Diego the team soon would offer Headley a contract that would make him the richest player in franchise history. "Indentured servitude went out a long time ago, so we can't force him to stay here," Fowler said.

Michael Young had tried Oxycontin once before he began seeing Dr. Hsiu-Ying "Lisa" Tseng. He had complained about pain in his hand to a friend, a patient of Tseng's, who gave him a pill and referred him to the doctor. Young liked the strength of the painkiller and quickly set up an appointment. Months later, Young woke up on a gurney, listening as paramedics talked around him and Tseng stood nearby. "The last day I saw her, I overdosed in her office," he said. Young testified as part of a preliminary hearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court to determine whether prosecutors have enough evidence to try Tseng on charges of second-degree murder in connection with the overdose deaths of three of her patients.

Ram wide receiver Michael Young won't easily forget his role in Sunday's 14-7 victory over the Atlanta Falcons. In only his second career start, the second-year receiver from UCLA fumbled once at the goal line in the second quarter, costing the Rams a probable touchdown. In the third quarter, at the end of a 12-yard pass play, Young fumbled again. Falcon cornerback James Britt picked up the loose ball and returned it 65 yards for the Falcons' only score. "I've never done that," Young said.

On the bright side, John Lackey lasted more than two pitches in his rematch with the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night. In fact, the Angels' ace threw 105 more pitches than he did in his infamous two-and-out 2009 debut in Texas on May 16. Not that the results were much better.
