If Jerome Williams is the odd man out when Manager Mike Scioscia trims his six-man rotation to five starters later this week - and there is a good chance he will be - that will seem very odd to those who follow the Angels. Williams has done everything he can to retain the rotation spot he assumed in early May, continuing a brilliant five-game run with a seven-inning, two-run, three-hit, six-strikeout effort against the Houston Astros on Saturday night. But the right-hander had the misfortune of matching up against Houston ace Bud Norris, who gave up four hits in six shutout innings to lead the Astros to a 2-0 victory at Angel Stadium.

Next week, the U.S. Open returns to Merion Golf Club outside Philadelphia for the fifth time since the club was established 100 years ago. It has played host to some of professional golf's most memorable moments, including Bobby Jones' completion of the Grand Slam by winning the U.S. Amateur in 1930 and Ben Hogan capturing his second of four U.S. Opens in 1950, months after a near-fatal car accident. Just down the road the Philadelphia Museum of Art has taken the opportunity to explore the less well known artistic representation of the game, in Victorian-era Britain, with the exhibition "The Art of Golf.

Jodie Escobedo, 41, said this was her first CicLAvia event and she loved it. Escobedo and her family rode their bikes from Santa Monica to downtown and back. The four were split up in the sea of cyclists, but they'll meet up at home, she said. "This is the nicest I've ever seen people in L.A.,” Escobido said. “Get them out of their cars and they're polite. " Kihana Crockett, 26, was forced into her first CicLAvia last year when her street was closed off for the event.

BALTIMORE -- Ronald Belisario was hunched over at his locker, his elbows resting on his knees. "Give me 10 minutes," he said. Once Belisario collected himself, he tried to convince his assembled audience, and perhaps himself, that everything would be fine. "I'm in a slump," Belisario said. "I'll be out of there soon. " Belisario was on the mound when the Dodgers gave up the go-ahead runs in a 7-5 defeat to the Baltimore Orioles in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday.

- Luis Jimenez sat in front of his corner locker in the Angels' clubhouse Saturday morning, pounding a wooden mallet into the pocket of a new first baseman's glove to soften the stiff leather. The mitt was a gift from fellow Dominican Albert Pujols . And if Jimenez learns to use it quickly enough it could earn him an invitation to the big leagues sometime this season. "We want to see his versatility," Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said. "This guy has looked really good at third base.

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- To Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly , Clayton Kershaw looks ready for his opening-day assignment - that is, unless his leg swells up overnight. Kershaw was struck on his left Achilles tendon by a batted ball during what were otherwise six near-perfect innings Saturday against the Texas Rangers. David Murphy's fourth-inning line drive accounted for one of only two hits Kershaw gave up. "It might be a little sore tomorrow," Kershaw said. "I'll ice it tonight.

TEMPE, Ariz. - For most major league veterans, spring training is a pretty low-key affair. All you have to do is get a little work in, break a sweat occasionally, and fine-tune a few things for the regular season. But even by those standards Tuesday was a relaxing day for left-hander C.J. Wilson, who pitched four innings against a team made up primarily of minor leaguers on what was, for the rest of the Angels, a day off. "We have to make it like a real game even though we're just facing our own guys," Wilson said.

PHOENIX - With eight pitchers competing for five spots in the rotation, the Dodgers opened spring training wondering where they would find enough innings to get every potential starter ready for the regular season. That problem got worse Friday when rain limited Ted Lilly to three batters in an afternoon game with the Giants. The left-hander, who missed his previous start with flu-like symptoms, has thrown just 10 pitches this month and only 22/3 innings this spring. "Well, Teddy got out there at least," Dodger Manager Don Mattingly said of Lilly, who threw an extra 25 pitches in the bullpen.

PHOENIX — Despite boasting the biggest payroll in baseball history, the Dodgers opened spring training with a number of questions. And few were bigger than the state of Chad Billingsley's tender right elbow. But after a strong outing Thursday in which the right-hander held the Texas Rangers to one earned run and two hits in 31/3 innings, Manager Don Mattingly said the issue of Billingsley's health is fading. "We came in kind of concerned over last year. Was he going to be able to hold up?"

Dodgers 11, Texas 11 AT THE PLATE: For the second day in a row, Dee Gordon had two hits and two stolen bases and scored twice. Yasiel Puig and nonroster invitee Brian Barden also had two hits each, with Barden raising his average to .579. Minor leaguer Matt Angle had two hits, including a three-run, score-tying home run with two out in the ninth. ON THE MOUND: Chad Billingsley gave up only two hits in 31/3 innings, his best outing of the spring. But Mark Lowe followed him to the mound and struggled, giving up four runs and three hits while getting three outs.
