⚾️MLB: The Angels didn’t play a game yesterday and the Dodgers basically didn’t show up for theirs, losing 5–0 to the Colorado Rockies. But at least the loss was entertaining: center fielder Cody Bellinger pulled off this catch and third baseman Justin Turner pitched for the first time in his MLB career.

🏀Sparks: The Sparks are on the outside looking in. Saturday’s defeat at the hands of the league-leading Connecticut Sun marked three straight losses for LA, who still sit 10th in the standings (top eight make the playoffs). With just six regular season games remaining, it’s gut-check time.

🎓🏈Box scores: UCLA football won their season opener on Saturday, defeating Hawaii 44–10. However, the Rams and Chargers both dropped their preseason finales, losing 17–12 to the Denver Broncos and 27–0 to the Seattle Seahawks, respectively.
