Ryan Partridge back on top with K&N Pro Series West

Ryan Partridge of Rancho Cucamonga did not compete in the K&N Pro Series West in 2017, a last-minute decision. However, his return to the circuit has been pretty spectacular. He’s atop the points standings after his dominant Sunrise Ford 150 win Saturday night at Orange Show Speedway in San Bernardino

Dodgers break out in first game but lose nightcap to split doubleheader with Giants

SAN FRANCISCO –Thirteen hours after the players reported to the ballpark to play seven hours’ worth of baseball, a light rain briefly fell on AT&T Park Saturday night. No doubt Dave Roberts could have found a silver lining even in those clouds. “It’s a tough month for us,” the Dodgers manager

Angels’ Shohei Ohtani expects to be past blister issues

HOUSTON — The Blister Watch could be over. A day after Shohei Ohtani threw 98 pitches without issue, Manager Mike Scioscia said Ohtani is confident he will not have a problem with the blister again this season. Scioscia said Ohtani told him the skin ha…

Kartje: 2018 NFL mock draft 2.0 – Are Browns crazy about Josh Allen?

The Browns are going to screw this up, aren’t they? It didn’t seem possible, at first. Even for the Browns. As they stood in the pouring rain, watching Sam Darnold lace spirals at his Pro Day, we couldn’t help but assume they would make the right choice. But in recent weeks, as rumors have

Bonsignore: Time for the NFL to eliminate pre-draft personal workouts

Unless you’re a diehard Wisconsin football fan or NFL draft junkie, chances are you don’t know who Nick Nelson is. And if you didn’t spend your Saturday afternoons watching the North Carolina State football team the last few years, same goes for Kentavius Street. Well, prior to last week

Dodgers’ Corey Seager trying to work his way out of slow start

SAN FRANCISCO – The tape on Corey Seager’s fingers attests to the number of swings he takes daily in the batting cage. Any redness in his eyes can be blamed on all the video he watches, hours before each game. So far, all that work has not dug Seager out of a rare slump. He did have two hits (and

A’s sound impressed by Shohei Ohtani as he prepares for pitching encore

ANAHEIM — It’s very, very early, but for now, no MLB hitter has been more successful against Shohei Ohtani than Matt Chapman. That doesn’t mean the A’s third baseman is eager for a rematch — not even with the benefit of seeing the Angels’ two-way phenom on the mound twice in eight days

Angels still searching for starting pitching length after loss to A’s

ANAHEIM — After the week it’s had, the Angels bullpen might deserve a break. On Wednesday, the Angels burned through eight different relievers in a 13-inning marathon against Cleveland. Two nights later, they leaned on six — salvaging a win against the A’s despite starter Parker Bridwell lasting

Kenley Jansen blows save, Wilmer Font runs out of gas as Dodgers lose to Diamondbacks in 15 innings

PHOENIX — Okay, now you can worry. It was bothersome Friday night when Kenley Jansen couldn’t touch 90 mph and gave up a home run to Joe Panik in his first inning of the season. What happened Monday night at Chase Field, though, was even more troubling. Jansen entered in the ninth inning to protect
