Seth Smith, a 36-year county resident and former shop foreman for the city of Oxnard, died Monday of a heart attack while vacationing in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He was 83. Despite being legally blind for three years, Smith remained active, often traveling throughout the West to visit relatives and spending two weeks a year fishing on Lake Havasu, said his daughter, Gloria Smith. He also loved gardening, growing vegetables and fruit in his backyard. "He kept busy," she said.

Raul Ibanez and Coco Crispcame up huge for their teams during their respective American Leaguedivision series Wednesday night. Ibanez hadn't been much of a factor for the New York Yankees in their series against the Baltimore Orioles. He had just one hit -- a single -- as designated hitter in Game 1 and did not make another appearance until pinch hitting for Alex Rodriguez in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 3. Suddenly, Ibanez became a factor. With one out and the Yankees trailing by a run, Ibanez homered to right-center field off major league saves leader Jim Johnson to tie the score, 2-2, and force extra innings.

The longer you play this game, the more you know not to overanalyze a torrid streak like the one the Angels, who won 15 of 18 games entering a critical four-game series against Oakland, were on. "You just keep riding that bike until the wheels fall off," veteran right fielder Torii Hunter said. The Angels didn't go flying over the handlebars and crashing to the pavement in a 3-1 loss to the Athletics on Monday night at Angel Stadium. Dan Haren delivered another quality start, giving up three runs and four hits in 61/3 innings, 40-year-old reliever Jason Isringhausen escaped a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the seventh, and the Angels played a clean game defensively.

Garrett Atkins hit a two-run homer and Jason Giambi had a two-run double in a five-run third inning, sending the Colorado Rockies to their seventh straight win, 5-1 over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday. The Rockies, the National League wild-card leaders, increased their cushion to 4 1/2 games over the idle San Francisco Giants and crept to within two games of the first-place Dodgers in the NL West. The Dodgers also had the day off. Seth Smith kept up his torrid hitting with an RBI single in the third.

Colorado won its sixth consecutive game and extended its NL wild-card lead to four over San Francisco.

The Dodgers were handed their first run on a silver platter in the first inning Wednesday night when Colorado Rockies starter Jason Hammel threw two wild pitches. Three hours later, Dodgers reliever Octavio Dotel did him one better, handing the Rockies the winning run on a golden platter with three wild pitches in the 10th inning that gave Colorado a 3-2 victory at Dodger Stadium. With one out, Dotel walked Melvin Mora, who then stole second base. With Dexter Fowler up, Dotel threw a wild pitch that moved Mora to third base, and with Jason Giambi pinch-hitting, Dotel threw yet another wild pitch and Mora scored the winning run. The Dodgers nearly tied the score in their half of the 10th inning when Reed Johnson singled and Scott Podsednik hit a fly to shallow center field that Fowler couldn't handle.

Imagine the story of the Nativity recast as a Hollywood blockbuster - a sword-and-sandals epic loaded with expensive computer-generated effects, a disfigured, lecherous villain and enough hacked-off limbs, severed heads and stomach-turning disembowlings to give even Quentin Tarantino pause - and you'll have a solid idea of what to expect in "Unholy Night," the new novel from mash-up king Seth Grahame-Smith. With his novels "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,"Grahame-Smith carved out a unique literary niche for himself, popularizing the genre mash-up movement and bringing a refreshing zaniness to historical fiction.

The book, which has topped bestseller lists in the United States and in Nicholls' native England, won praise for its unusual literary device, but when it came time for the author to adapt the story into...

The smile disappeared from the face of Rafael Furcal, who repeatedly shook his head when asked about his season. "Bad year," he said. "Ugly year. " Even after the Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies, 9-7, on Tuesday at Coors Field, they remained four games under .500. That means Furcal will miss the postseason for only the second time in his 11-year major-league career, the first six of which were spent with the Atlanta Braves. "I've become used to it after all those years in the playoffs," Furcal said.

Well, Vicente Padilla didn't throw at anyone. And in case you were interested in anything else that happened at Coors Field today, here's a brief summary: Padilla won the most important game of the season to date for the Dodgers, who took a chance on the 31-year-old with a temper as live as his right arm. Dumped by Texas this month, Padilla reemerged from a 22-day exile by limiting the second-place Colorado Rockies to two runs and six hits...
