 For the first time since 2005, USC won a three-game series over UCLA this past weekend, sweeping the three games. It gives the Trojans (24-17, 12-9) a nine-game winning streak. Leading the way have been a group of former Southland high school standouts. Jake Hernandez, a Los Osos grad, leads the Trojans in hitting with a .367 batting average. Freshman Jeremy Martinez (Mater Dei) is at .324, and Loyola grad Kevin Swick is at .321. Kyle Davis, a sophomore from Garden Grove Pacifica, has become the standout closer.

Tomas Plekanec scored his second goal of the game in overtime and the Montreal Canadiens ended Washington's team-record winning streak at 14 games with a 6-5 victory over the Capitals on Wednesday night.

Brooks Laich tied it at 5-5 for Washington, scoring his third goal of the game with 18.4 seconds left and goalie Jose Theodore pulled for an extra attacker.

DETROIT -- Saturday was not a good day for the Angels, who got a leadoff home run from J.B. Shuck and nothing else against Detroit co-ace Max Scherzer in a 5-2 loss that ended their improbable winning streak over the Tigers at 10 games dating to September 2012. It was not a good day for Angels center fielder Mike Trout, 22, who made history of a different sort with the first four-strikeout game of his career, three against Scherzer and one against closer Joe Nathan. It was not a very good day for the umpires, who missed two calls on the bases.

The 25th time is the charm for Chris Volstad, who had gone 24 starts without a win before Sunday's 5-0 rain-shortened Chicago Cubs victory over the Colorado Rockies. Volstad's winless streak dated back to July 17 of last year, when he was a member of the then-Florida Marlins. He was 0-14 with an earned-run average of 5.27 during that stretch. His streak will end four starts short of the major league record of 28 consecutive winless starts. Jo-Jo Reyes tied the record last May and now shares it with Matt Keough and Cliff Curtis.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Felt good off the club face. Looked good the whole way. Bubba Watson stood on the 16th tee at the Masters on Friday, eyes wide and zeroed in. His nine-iron at the 170-yard hole was tracking for the flag, then curled toward a possible ace. Watson thought it had a chance, so enthralled by the shot's path that he raised his club to his mouth and bit down. The ball settled four feet from the hole. So Watson settled for sinking an effortless birdie putt. Ho-hum.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier walked off the court holding up his index finger after another unpredictable Huskies victory. “One more game to go,” he said. What was most fascinating about the Huskies' 63-53 upset victory over top-ranked Florida in Saturday's NCAA Final Four semifinal was that it took more than one player to get to the one last game of the season. Through the tournament, Napier had been compared to former Connecticut guard and tournament miracle-worker Kemba Walker with four games of at least 19 points.

Referee Dick Bavetta is such great fun whether he's holding a ball as part of a skit with a team mascot, racing Charles Barkley or casually yukking it up with a superstar that you wish he could work another 2,633 consecutive games. The 74-year-old has not missed a game since making his NBA debut on Dec. 2, 1975, giving the league nearly 39 seasons of uninterrupted service. It's an amazing streak that is a tribute to Bavetta's health, determination and logistical wherewithal, the veteran referee having somehow conquered badly rerouted flights and closed airports to make every scheduled appearance.

Their hard-earned road mentality survived the flight home intact, making the trip back to Staples Center with the Kings. That hasn't always been the case this season. But the Kings chased one goalie (Ondrej Pavelec) and scored once on his replacement (Al Montoya) to defeat the Winnipeg Jets, 4-2, on Saturday night for their sixth straight victory. Leading scorer Anze Kopitar scored twice for the Kings, his 23rd and 24th goals of the season, his linemate Marian Gaborik added two assists, as did defenseman Willie Mitchell for his first multi-point game in nearly two years.

Playing at Denver on the second night of back-to-back games is considered one of the toughest things to do in the NBA. Even for a streaking team like the Clippers, it figures to be a tall task. The Clippers have won 11 consecutive games, the longest current winning streak in the league. They have tied the 1974-75 Buffalo Braves for the second-longest winning streak in franchise history. The franchise record is 17 games in a row, set by last year's team. But the Clippers play in Denver on Monday night, and they have lost three consecutive games there, the last time on a buzzer-beating three-pointer by Randy Foye.

Chris Paul made sure the Clippers stayed the course when they wobbled some in the final quarter, scoring 11 of his 16 points in the fourth. BOX SCORE: Clippers 102, Cavaliers 80 Paul had been struggling before the fourth, missing seven of nine shots, including both of his three-point attempts.
