NEW YORK - The Angels did not require the services of a closer Friday night. An offense that administered a rare beatdown of starter Hiroki Kuroda and pounded reliever Bruce Billings into submission in a 13-1 shellacking of the New York Yankees - the largest-ever margin of victory for the Angels in Yankee Stadium - made sure of that. The Angels crushed four home runs - a two-run shot to center field by Ian Stewart, a solo shot to left by Albert Pujols, a three-run shot to right-center by Erick Aybar and a solo shot to left by Collin Cowgill - to increase their major league-leading total to 35. With five more games this month, the Angels have broken the franchise record of 34 homers in April, set in 2000.

WASHINGTON - The Angels won't be traveling back in time Wednesday night, but it might feel that way. Instead of flying to New York after their game against the Washington Nationals, they will board a chartered Amtrak train in the nation's capital and ride the rails to Penn Station. “I'm excited, man,” reliever Joe Smith said. “It's like the movie 'The Natural,' when everybody was taking the train. It's one of those forgotten things. I know the stories the older guys tell me, and they say it's a lot of fun. It's something different from getting on a plane.

ON A MILD SUNDAY last summer, a string of "popping sounds" drifted through the lazy night air of Beverly Hills around 10 o'clock. "I didn't think anything of it," said Tom Zlotow, a neighbor who soon learned that the noises he'd heard from the house right behind his were echoes of the most sensational crime in the history of Beverly Hills. "I didn't even think it could be gunfire, especially around here."

In his short life, former ABC television anchorman Max Robinson admitted having many problems: alcohol abuse, racial struggles, career disaster and three failed marriages. But he never publicly acknowledged having the disease that would end his life. Yet in his death at 49, Robinson had his family reveal that he had AIDS so that others in the black community would be alerted to the dangers of the disease and the need for treatment and education.

It's Friday night at the drive-in. As the pale-skinned hero of the season's hot new martial-arts flick snaps the bones of the Asian archvillain, the Winnetka 6 erupts in honking horns and flashing headlights. The movie that has the big-wheeled pickups beeping is "Bloodsport." Advertised as the true story of an American who defeated all comers 13 years ago in a no-holds-barred international tournament of warriors, the movie opened last month at 800 U.S.

In the battle for tourists, Los Angeles is losing ground to rivals Orlando, Fla., New York, and Chicago. L.A. County has broken its own record for annual visitors three years in a row - thanks to a rebounding economy, sunny California weather and popular tourist attractions. But L.A.'s tourist numbers are not growing fast enough to keep up with the nation's top three destinations, primarily because the city lacks enough hotel rooms to host more tourists. "We have an awful lot of things that are in our favor," said Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist at the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp.

Toyota launched a dramatic mid-cycle restyling of its Camry sedan in a move to fend off increasing competition from rivals such as the Honda Accord and the Nissan Altima. The Camry has been the nation's best-selling passenger car for a dozen years but its lead over competitors is narrowing. Through the first three months of this year, Toyota has sold just over 94,000 Camrys. It leads the Altima by about 5,000 sales and the Accord by about 15,000 sales. But the Accord's share of the market is growing and, when sales to rental car companies and other fleet customers are subtracted, actually beat the Camry last year, said Karl Brauer, an analyst with auto information company Kelley Blue Book.

Chevrolet is pushing further into the small-SUV segment. Having already introduced six new models into the segment in the last four years -- and enjoyed a triple-digit growth of small car sales -- the automaker will be unwrapping its 2015 Trax. They're hoping to take a bigger bite out of the small SUV market, going up against the Nissan Jook and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. Promising "small-car agility with the utility of an SUV," the Trax comes stock with a little engine and a lot of room -- a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine, and almost 50 cubic feet of storage space.
