NEW YORK -- Third base is beginning to look like a platoon position for the Angels, with the left-handed-hitting Ian Stewart getting the start over struggling David Freese against New York Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda on Friday night, the third time in six games Manager Mike Scioscia has gone with such an alignment. The lack of regular playing time is making it difficult, if not impossible, for Freese, who is batting .145 (nine for 62) with one homer, five runs batted in, 20 strikeouts and five walks in 17 games, to find any rhythm, timing or confidence at the plate.

Time Warner Cable is starting to get more aggressive about wooing customers of rival pay-TV services to change providers if they want to see Dodger games. "Switch today and never miss a game," says a recent advertisement from the cable company, which is handling distribution for the Dodger-owned channel SportsNet LA. If watching the Dodgers is not enough of an enticement, Time Warner Cable is also offering a $300 Visa Reward Card. Until recently, Time Warner Cable steered clear of advertisements trying to convince people to switch to its service.

The fight over transparency at the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is only escalating, with yet another lawsuit filed this week over two secretive nonprofits that have received $40 million in ratepayer money. For the last six months, Mayor Eric Garcetti and City Controller Ron Galperin have made it their mission to audit how the money was spent. They argue that the public has a right to know how public money is used. And last month a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge agreed , saying Galperin has the authority to audit the nonprofit institutes.

The Times filed a motion Friday opposing a court order that would bar public access to records in a sexual harassment case involving Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar. The newspaper said it is seeking to be heard on the public's right to access records in the lawsuit filed last year by former Huizar Deputy Chief of Staff Francine Godoy because the case involves "matters of substantial public interest. " Huizar attorney Dennis Walsh filed paperwork four weeks ago seeking a protective order to prohibit disclosure of "private and sensitive information" until it becomes evidence at trial.

A day after hearing hours of impassioned testimony from a divided trucking industry, California air quality regulators on Friday postponed deadlines for aging heavy-duty trucks to comply with the nation's toughest diesel air pollution rules. The action by the state Air Resources Board will give small fleets, lightly used trucks and those operating in rural areas more time to upgrade to newer, cleaner models or install filters to remove soot from their exhaust. Officials say the changes will slow pollution cuts for several years but still allow the state to reach its goal of cutting diesel emissions 85% by 2020.

It will be a game-time decision whether Ryan Getzlaf will play Friday in Game 5 of the Ducks' deadlocked first-round Western Conference playoff series against the Dallas Stars. The team's leading scorer missed Wednesday's 4-2 loss at Dallas because of an upper-body injury that Coach Bruce Boudreau said was aggravated in the previous game, a 3-0 road loss. Neither Boudreau nor Getzlaf would confirm whether the injury is connected to the multiple stitches Getzlaf received after being struck in the face with a puck blasted by Dallas scoring leader Tyler Seguin in Game 1. Getzlaf was ruled out of Game 4 Wednesday morning, and then boarded a flight back to Southern California for an afternoon medical appointment.

Irwindale officials decided Wednesday to delay the adoption of a resolution that would have officially designated the spicy smell of Sriracha hot sauce a public nuisance.  The city and sauce maker Huy Fong Foods have agreed to discuss a solution and the City Council decided to table the issue until a council meeting on May 14, said City Atty. Fred Galante.  "We've been in communication since the last hearing to see if there is a way to resolve this whole matter," Galante said.

SACRAMENTO -- For years, Gray Davis has told a favorite story about Jerry Brown and his carpet. When Brown was governor in the 1970s, he refused to patch a hole in the carpet of his Capitol office, hoping that his display of frugality would be emulated across state government. Davis, who was Brown's chief of staff before becoming governor himself, got a chance to retell the story in the new issue of Time magazine. He wrote a short article about Brown , one of the publication's 100 most influential people.
