MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Even though its ubiquitous Internet search engine practically mints money, Google Inc. was widely seen as a company whose best days were behind it. It was written off as the next Microsoft Corp. - a staid high-tech giant in the shadows of Apple Inc. and Facebook Inc. that had lost its sense of urgency and innovative edge. But that sentiment has shifted dramatically over the last year, and when Google swings open the doors to its annual conference for software developers Wednesday, it won't just be showcasing its latest products.

The Dodgers are sending Zack Greinke back to the mound Wednesday night, more than three weeks ahead of his scheduled return from a fractured left clavicle. But the right-hander said he'll be pitching with some restrictions. "I know they don't want me running into people," Greinke said. "But it's not a common thing that you run into someone. " The Dodgers' caution is understandable given that they signed Greinke to a $147-million free-agent contract in the off-season, then watched him go on the disabled list after his second start when he was knocked hard to the turf by the San Diego Padres' Carlos Quentin during a bench-clearing brawl.

Corey Perry wanted to carry the Ducks on his shoulders in the Stanley Cup playoffs. At least that was his plan leading into the first-round series against Detroit. Four games later, Perry has produced just one assist and the Ducks now are in a best-of-three fight against the Red Wings, with Game 5 on Wednesday night at Honda Center. "Obviously, it's not the start that I wanted, we're tied 2-2," Perry said. "Hopefully, I can get it going and we'll take things from there.

The Angels' bullpen has been bruised and battered this season. And there's a chance things could get worse before they get better. Two of the four relievers on the disabled list - right-handers Ryan Madson (Tommy John surgery) and Kevin Jepsen (shoulder strain) - threw lightly on flat ground Thursday, the first time either of them has thrown in two weeks. But because neither has a timetable for getting back on a mound, it's likely both pitchers are weeks away from being reactivated.

NEW YORK - Considering Ted Lilly hadn't pitched in more than 11 months, considering he was recovering from shoulder surgery and considering no one really knew what to expect from him, his start Wednesday marked a minor victory for the Dodgers. Lilly pitched the first five innings of the Dodgers' 10-inning, 7-3 defeat to the New York Mets at Citi Field, holding the home team to a run and six hits. Only a week ago, the 37-year-old left-hander appeared as if he wasn't part of the Dodgers' plans.
