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)

The second seasons of "Girls" and"Enlightened"will roll out on HBO in January. For "Girls" fans, that might be a long wait for someone longing for more glimpses of Adam Sackler's chest, sure. And it's an even longer wait for fans of "Enlightened," whose first season finale aired in December. The two comedies are paired for a beginning-of-the-year roll-out to fill the hole left by the horse-racing drama"Luck," which would have likely aired its second season during that period had it not been abrubtly canceled following a series of animal deaths.

Detroit's Miguel Cabrera became the first baseball player to win his league's Triple Crown in 45 years when he finished the 2012 season leading the AL in batting average (.330), home runs (44) and RBIs (139). Cabrera is only the 14th Triple Crown winner since 1901, but where does his season rank among all Triple Crown winners? Using a stat called OPS+ can help give us an answer. Basically, what OPS+ does is allow people to judge players across eras. OPS compares your stats to the league average and assign a value.

Blake DeWitt still hasn't rented an apartment in Los Angeles. The 23-year-old infielder from small-town Missouri who was the Dodgers' feel-good story of last year doesn't know where he fits in the team's plans this season. But he's fine with that. "It'll take care of itself," DeWitt said. DeWitt is in his fourth stint in the majors this season and seventh in two years.

DALLAS - Goaltender Jonas Hiller tried to make the best of the bad situation he had helped create through his shaky play in the last weeks of the regular season, but there were times uncertainty overtook him and despair crept in. He lost his starting job to rookie Frederik Andersen and for a while appeared to have dropped to third on the depth chart behind another rookie, John Gibson. He was the Ducks' forgotten man, left by the wayside as the Ducks forged to the top of the Western Conference and designated Andersen their playoff starter against the Dallas Stars.

DALLAS -- Lindy Ruff did an outstanding job in coaching the Stars to the playoffs for the first time since 2008, taking a team that's almost evenly split between veterans and kids and molding it into a competitive group that has pushed the top-seeded Ducks hard throughout the teams' first-round playoff series. For Ruff, who spent the previous 14-plus seasons coaching the Buffalo Sabres, the playoffs have provided a continuing education about his own team and his players' abilities and character.

He has the beard of a hockey player residing in the first round of the playoffs, not one of a man living for months in the mountains. Kings forward Jeff Carter offered a take on the attitude - and, well, altitude - of a now-compelling playoff series between the Kings and the San Jose Sharks in the Western Conference quarterfinals. "Yeah, we're halfway there. Halfway up the mountain," Carter said Sunday afternoon at the Kings' practice facility in El Segundo. Game 6 is Monday night at Staples Center with the Sharks holding a three-games-to-two series lead.

Justin Williams reached back and delivered some of his Game 7 playoff magic for the Kings in Game 4. For the Kings, it might as well have been Game 7. Justin Time. Or should that be Just In Time? With the Kings facing playoff elimination against the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night, Williams, who had been without a point in the first three games, scored twice in the Kings' 6-3 victory over the Sharks in Game 4 at Staples Center. San Jose leads the best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series, three games to one. Game 5 will be on Saturday in San Jose.

KEY MOMENT: Jamey Wright gave up an 11th-inning double to Rockies pinch-hitter Brandon Barnes, after which Wright was replaced by left-hander J.P. Howell. Facing the left-handed-hitting Charlie Blackmon, Howell gave up a run-scoring single that broke a 2-2 stalemate. The run was the first of three in the inning for the Rockies. Adrian Gonzalez closed the gap to 5-4 with a two-run home run in the bottom half of the inning. ON THE MOUND: Josh Beckett pitched what was by far his best game of the season, limiting the Rockies to two runs and four hits over eight innings.

Their big guys played big, the leaders led by fearless example, and the Kings, on the brink of going home for the summer, got the result they so urgently needed, a 6-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Thursday at Staples Center that extended their season by at least one more game. "We're alive," said winger Marian Gaborik, who played a huge part in resuscitating them by scoring their first and fifth goals. Justin Williams scored twice in a three-goal spree in the second period, and rookie Tyler Toffoli chipped in with the kind of skillful goal the Kings need from him in the short- and long-term future.

Orlando Woolridge, the rugged forward and former Laker who carved out a reputation over 13 NBA seasons as a scoring specialist and became one of the original alley-oop artists, has died. He was 52. Woolridge, who was with the Lakers from 1988 to 1990, died Thursday at his parents' home in Mansfield, La. He had been receiving hospice care for a chronic heart condition, according to the local coroner's office. Drafted by the Chicago Bulls in the first round in 1981, Woolridge spent five seasons with the team.

This was not your typical in-season coaching change, but few are as monumental. If Lakers coach Jack McKinney hadn't decided to ride his bike to a tennis date with assistant Paul Westhead on Nov. 8, 1979 the course of the team's history might have been different — and so would the course of several men's lives. McKinney had left an assistant's job in Portland to coach the Lakers in 1979 and soon installed the foundation of the Showtime era. His team was humming along at 10-4, his relationship with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar solidifying into a deep trust, when McKinney hurtled over the handlebars of his bike and struck his head on the pavement, sustaining a serious head injury.
