Leake Leads Cardinals To 6-1 Win Over Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mike Leake isn’t shocked to see his name atop the National League ERA leaderboard. The St. Louis Cardinals emerging ace gets why it’s a surprise to others, though. Leake allowed four hits over eight innings and dropped his ERA to 1.91, helping the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-1 on Wednesday night. “No, I’m not surprised because it’s been an eight-year process for me to get to where I’m at,” Leake said. “It’s not a surprise for myself, but I’m sure it’s a surprise for others.” Leake (5-2) struck out five and walked none while allowing an earned run. He’s yet to allow more than three runs in a start this season. “He’s got a lot of movement on his ball,” Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger said. “He was hitting his spots. He has been effective all year, and he has got a good thing going. We just didn’t execute well tonight.” Yadier Molina hit a solo home run in the seventh inning to extend his hitting streak to 13 games. Molina matched Kolten Wong for the Cardinals’ longest streak this season. Jedd Gyorko had three hits and also drew a walk during a two-run second inning that gave the Cardinals the lead for good. Dodgers starter Rich Hill walked seven and allowed five earned runs in four-plus innings. He threw two more balls (42) than strikes (40). Hill (1-2) walked four during a 36-pitch second inning. “It was a bad outing. It was terrible,” Hill said. “I accept full responsibility for that. I just gave them the game. That is unacceptable.” Hill retired the side in the first inning but was putting guys on base with regularity afterward. “After that first inning, a very easy inning, it was pretty encouraging,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “But, once he took the mound in the second inning, I think he got a little frustrated with the strike zone.” Hill has battled blister problems since last season but said he’s healthy and that his finger wasn’t an issue. “I can’t really pinpoint it right now,” Hill said of his problems. “Mechanically I was a little off, just kind of jumping all over the place. I am really going to work on some things this week to get right for the next outing.” Chris Taylor made his first start in center field for the Dodgers, replacing Joc Pederson, who was out with a stiff neck following a nasty collision with Yasiel Puig on the warning track Tuesday night. Pederson has passed all concussion protocols so far, but the Dodgers are still monitoring him. “Puig was really soft,” Pederson said. “The wall is really hard.” TO THE PEN HE GOES? Hyun-Jin Ryu is not on the disabled list but he’s not been pitching lately, either. The Dodgers are trying to figure out what to do with him. It was Korean night Wednesday at Dodger Stadium and T-shirts with his No. 99 were distributed. He threw on flat ground Wednesday, and the Dodgers are considering moving Ryu — who has always been a starter — to the bullpen. “I’m just making sure Ryu feels fine physically and mentally and emotionally is in the right place,” Roberts said. “Trying to figure out when we can get him back in the mix. … We’ve discussed (the bullpen). I know Ryu is open to do whatever can help our team. If that were to happen, it wouldn’t be permanent. We have an excess of quality starting pitchers. To try to get innings for guys is tough.” CALL TO THE PEN Leake had thrown 98 pitches through eight innings and said he could’ve tried to finish the game but understood when Cardinals manager Mike Matheny opted to use reliever Tyler Lyons in the ninth. “More than anything else, we don’t have any off days any time soon,” Matheny said. “I would imagine if he would’ve had a zero up there it might have been a little different. I know they all want to throw complete games, I get it. But it might be a day to save a few pitches, let somebody else finish it out and get ready for the next one.” UP NEXT Cardinals: RHP Michael Wacha (2-1, 2.74) pitched six scoreless innings against the Giants in his last start. He has pitched at least six innings in all seven of his starts this season. Dodgers: RHP Kenta Maeda (3-2, 5.03) will come off the DL with a hamstring injury to make his start. He pitched a rehab start Friday. In his last start, May 10 against Pittsburgh, he pitched 8 1/3 innings and allowed two runs in the win. Read More »

Thousands Of Tiny Clams Wash Up In Newport Beach

NEWPORT BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Beachgoers and surfers were surprised to find an abundance of clams and clam shells washing up on the shores of Newport Beach. The tiny bean clams carpeted a stretch of shore north of the Newport Beach Pier Wednesday. “All lined from the boardwalk all the way down. I didn’t really see them stop. About 10 feet thick, just all the way down the boardwalk. Pretty crazy,” surfer Bharat Vishnubhotia recalled. Surf conditions and low tides exposed the creatures, which spend most of their lives buried in the sand, UC Irvine marine biologist Matthew Bracken said. “We’ve had so many unusual surf earlier this week, and some erosion happened an exposed them,” said Bracken. “If we leave them alone, they will bury themselves nicely back down in the sand.” Read More »

Mother Pleads For Help Finding Missing 5-Year-Old Boy

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)  — A mother made a tearful plea for help Wednesday for help finding her 5-year-old son, who has been missing for more than a month. Ana Estevez said it had been 32 days and almost three hours since she kissed, hugged or told her son, Aramazd Andressian Jr., that she loved him. “My son’s disappearance is my worst nightmare,” Estevez said. A reward for information that would help locate the South Pasadena boy was doubled by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to $20,000. “Be brave,” Estevez said to her son in the hopes that the boy would see her message. “Mama and a lot of people are working hard to bring you home.” A frantic search for the boy began when his father, Aramazd Andressian Sr., was found unconscious at South Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco Park. He could not tell authorities where his son was, which kicked off a search that has spanned several Southern California counties. Andressian was arrested on April 22 and released from jail three days later. A search warrant was served at his South Pasadena home on April 28. In a statement released by his attorney, Andressian said, “I can only speculate that I must have been attacked in the park, given my unresponsive state and subsequent physical condition.” Detectives confirmed Wednesday that Andressian had taken prescription drugs the night he was found passed out – drugs that did not belong to him. They also said there was evidence of what is believed to be gasoline poured inside the car, where matches were also found – but police say there is no evidence to suggest Andressian was about to set the car on fire.

Travelers Contend With Massive LAX Terminal Relocation

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) – Eight airlines were at different terminals at Los Angeles International Airport Saturday as part of the largest terminal relocation in its history. “LAX on the MOVE” began Friday night. When it is completed next week, 15 airlines will have relocated their operations. The airlines in new locations as of Saturday will be Allegiant and Frontier, which have both moved from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5; Boutique Air, which has moved from Terminal 3 to Terminal 6; Sun Country, which has moved from Terminal 2 to Terminal 5; and Virgin America, which has moved from Terminal 3 to Terminal 6. Virgin Australian will now check-in passengers at Terminal 2, but continue to stage aircraft at the Tom Bradley International Terminal.

Delta is in the midst of a $1.9 billion renovation project that includes constructing a sky bridge to the Tom Bradley International Terminal. “Our future in Los Angeles is bright with our $1.9 billion plan for the Delta Sky Way at LAX, an unprecedented public-private partnership through which Delta will undertake the second largest private infrastructure project in the LA basin and completely redevelop Terminals 2 and 3,” said Ranjan Goswami, a vice president for Delta. Many travelers were trying to take the changes in stride. “Well, I started apparently at Terminal 2, and then they told me to walk all the way around — take the shuttle — which everybody is doing, it’s pretty crazy, so going to Terminal 6 now to catch my flight,” flier Sean Leedy told KCAL9 Saturday morning. Other changes, past and future, include: — Air Canada, T2 to T6, Wednesday; — American, T4/T6 to T4/T5, took effect Jan. 31; — Avianca, T2 to Tom Bradley International Terminal, with T3 check-in and passengers walking from T3 to TBIT, Monday; — Copa, TBIT (T6 check-in) to TBIT (T3 check-in), with passengers walking from T3 to TBIT, took effect April 7; — Hainan, T2 to TBIT, took effect April 14; — Hawaiian, T2 to T5, Wednesday; — InterJet, T2 to TBIT (T3 check-in), with passengers walking from T3 to TBIT, Monday; — JetBlue, T3 to T5, Wednesday; — Qatar, T2 to TBIT, took effect May 1; — Southwest (International), T2 (T1 check-in) to TBIT (T1 check-in), with passengers bused from T1 to TBIT, Wednesday; — Spirit, T3 to T5, Monday; — Thomas Cook, T2 to TBIT, took effect May 1; and — XL France, T2 to T6, June 4. Passengers are strongly encouraged to check in, print or download boarding passes before leaving for the airport so they can arrive at the correct terminal for their departure. They are also encouraged to arrive earlier than usual — three hours for a domestic flight and four hours for an international flight. Passengers should look at new signage that will be updated nightly to reflect the moves and identify the new airline terminal locations. Travelers are reminded to ask for help if they have problems finding their flights. More than 200 volunteers will be on duty to assist passengers, many wearing green vests matching a green-wrapped shuttle bus that will run on both the upper- and lower-level roadways to help take passengers to their correct terminal. More information on the terminal relocation is available here. (©2017 CBS Local Media, a division of CBS Radio Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Airlines Begin Moving Operations At LAX

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com)  — Fifteen airlines will begin moving their operations Friday, as part of the largest airline terminal relocation in the history of Los Angeles International Airport. The moves will make way for the Delta Sky Way at LAX – the airline’s $1.9 billion plan to renovate Terminals 2, 3 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal over the next seven years. Delta is moving operations from Terminal 5 and 6, and between Saturday at Tuesday will operate from as many as four terminals — 2, 3, 5 and 6. The changes will affect more than the 15 airlines moving their terminal numbers for check-in counters, gates or both. Another seven airlines are changing ticket booth locations within their existing terminals, and some have already been relocated. Here is a schedule of the changes: — Air Canada, T2 to T6, Wednesday; — Allegiant, T3 to T5, Saturday; — American, T4/T6 to T4/T5, took effect Jan. 31; — Avianca, T2 to Tom Bradley International Terminal, with T3 check-in and passengers walking from T3 to TBIT, Monday; — Boutique Air, T3 to T6, Saturday; — Copa, TBIT (T6 check-in) to TBIT (T3 check-in), with passengers walking from T3 to TBIT, took effect April 7; — Delta, T5/T6 to T2/T3, Saturday; — Frontier, T3 to T5, Saturday; — Hainan, T2 to TBIT, took effect April 14; — Hawaiian, T2 to T5, Wednesday; — InterJet, T2 to TBIT (T3 check-in), with passengers walking from T3 to TBIT, Monday; — JetBlue, T3 to T5, Wednesday; — Qatar, T2 to TBIT, took effect May 1; — Southwest (International), T2 (T1 check-in) to TBIT (T1 check-in), with passengers bused from T1 to TBIT, Wednesday; — Spirit, T3 to T5, Monday; — Sun Country, T2 to T5, Saturday; — Thomas Cook, T2 to TBIT, took effect May 1; — Virgin America, T3 to T6, Saturday; — Virgin Australia, TBIT (T3 check-in) to TBIT (T2 check-in), with passengers bused from T2 to TBIT, Saturday; — Volaris, T2 to TBIT (T2 check-in), with passengers bused from T2 to TBIT, Saturday; and — XL France, T2 to T6, June 4. Traveler Shirley Grover said she planned ahead, but there was still some confusion about where exactly she was going to be in order to meet her Lyft driver. “We googled Allegiant to know where to come in, so we told our Lyft driver Terminal 6, but that’s where it’s moving to, so technically today, it’s still Terminal 3,” Grover said. Most of the moving will happen overnight between Friday night and Wednesday, but passengers are being warned to check their tickets carefully because many airlines will soon be located at different terminals. “It all comes down to our guests being informed and taking the necessary actions to make sure they are in the right place at the right time to catch their flights,” Los Angeles World Airports CEO Deborah Flint said. Travelers were advised to arrive at LAX even earlier than normal, after checking in online, printing or downloading boarding passes, and checking terminal and gate information. Once at the airport, travelers should one more time check flight and gate status on flight information display boards in each terminal to make sure they are in the correction location.
