Pujols, Weaver star in Angels’ 4-1 win over A’s

ANAHEIM — Sidelined most of April and May, Jered Weaver is back to his usual dominance in July.

Weaver threw […]

Martin takes command at Travis

TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE — Col. Corey J. Martin assumed command of Travis Air Force Base from Col. Dwight C. Sones Tuesday morning before a crowd of airmen, officers and community leaders who filled one of the flight-line hangars for the change-of-command ceremony.

Martin comes to Travis to take leadership of the 60th Air Mobility Wing after serving in command of the 376th Air Expeditionary Wing at Manas Transit Center in the Kyrgyz Republic, the same station where Sones served before coming to Travis two years ago.

Nadal stunned at Wimbledon in 1st round by Darcis

LONDON — Just like that, in a span of 15 days, Rafael Nadal went from French Open champion for a record eighth time to first-round Grand Slam loser for the only time in his career.

Furlough Friday: Unpaid day off for many in gov’t

WASHINGTON — No one answered the tax-help hotline at the IRS on Friday.

Snedeker pulls away to win FedEx Cup

ATLANTA — With the biggest round of his career, Brandt Snedeker won something far more valuable than money Sunday. He proved to himself he could beat the best in the world.

Milone becomes a 10-game winner, beats Twins

OAKLAND — Coco Crisp has been tinkering with his batting stance to finally find something that works.

Crisp homered, hit an RBI double, […]

Hornish has chance to get back to Cup in No. 22

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Sam Hornish Jr. sent team owner Roger Penske a text message a day after AJ Allmendinger’s suspension making clear his desire: If a failed drug test keeps Allmendinger sidelined, Hornish wants to drive the No. 22 Dodge.

DETROIT — Rep. John Conyers, the powerful chairman of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, had his driver’s license suspended for a month this summer when a check he used to pay the renewal fee bounced, according to Michigan driving records obtained by The Associated Press.

Big expectations as US meets Ghana in World Cup

RUSTENBURG, South Africa — For other countries, a second-round World Cup match is a big step. For the United States, Saturday’s game against Ghana is so much more.

Last of Cash’s ‘American Recordings’ released

AP Entertainment Writer LOS ANGELES — Johnny Cash’s voice comes in with a rumble, singing that there “ain’t no grave that can hold my body down.” A shuffling beat that sounds like heavy chains being carried back and forth accompanies him.
