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.

Anthony who? The armchair speculation about UCLA's defense this spring has centered on how the Bruins will replace Anthony Barr, the All-American linebacker who is expected to be a top-10 pick in the NFL draft. The Bruins have devised two answers to fill that void: scheme adjustments and Myles Jack. Jack was named to the Freshman All-American team by the Sporting News last season, and was the Pac-12's defensive and offensive freshman of the year after a late season run at running back.

It's called the June 3 elections, but voters can start marking their ballots and sending them in as early as May 5. Topping the state portion of the ballot is Gov. Jerry Brown, who is seeking a fourth term and is eligible for it because he served his first two in the 1970s and early 1980s, before voters adopted a two-term limit. The lieutenant governor, attorney general, insurance commissioner and superintendent of public instruction are each seeking a second and final term. The incumbent state treasurer, controller and secretary of state are termed out. In those and all other statewide offices, all candidates will run in the June primary, regardless of party, with the top two finishers in each race facing off in November.

DALLAS - Injured Ducks defenseman Stephane Robidas was moved to tears in discussing the season-ending broken leg he suffered in a Western Conference first-round playoff series that is now tied 2-2 with Robidas' former team, the Dallas Stars. Robidas previously broke the same leg Nov. 29, worked to return to play March 18, then was hurt again Monday and lost for the top-seeded Ducks' postseason in a Game 3 collision with sliding Dallas forward Ryan Garbutt. “I mean, it's really hard,” Robidas said.
