Berkeley: Police seek suspects in armed robbery of cyclist

BERKELEY — Police said they are asking for the public’s help in finding suspects in a weekend armed robbery of a juvenile cyclist, apparently continuing a recent series of crimes in the city’s hills. According to authorities, UC Berkeley police officers responded around 2 p.m. Saturday to Grizzly Peak Boulevard between mile markers 12 and 13. There, officers learned two suspects approached the male juvenile, displayed at least one weapon and took his mountain bike before leaving in a vehicle resembling a Volkswagen Jetta. The juvenile was unhurt, but joins several victims of similar crimes targeting cyclists since at least mid-March in the Oakland and Berkeley hills, sections of which fall under the jurisdictions of Oakland, Berkeley, University of California and East Bay Regional Park Di...

It would have been a titanic comeback for Schauffele, but then it took on water

He arrived at the clubhouse with no gaping wounds. He was lucid. He even smiled. He said he had survived his head-first lunge into the Masters Tournament wall. “It’ll be another thing to put in my memory bank,” Xander Schauffele said. After this Masters and the 2019 Masters and the 2017 U.S. Open and the seven runnerup finishes that Schauffele has notched since his last previous PGA Tour win, that bank is becoming too big to fail. On Sunday he was six feet from stardom, or maybe legend, once again. He was playing with Hideki Matsuyama, who began Sunday with a 4-stroke lead, which really is no more than two swings. But when they walked off the 11th green, Schauffele trailed Matsuyama by seven. “He was a robot,” Schauffele said. “For a long time he just never made a mistake.” Schauffele made

Erica Hansen, community relations coordinator at Utah’s Hogle Zoo, and Harvey Helton, 3, of Kearns, communicate with Tuah, an orangutan, at the zoo in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. According to zoo officials, the primates missed the interaction with guests during the zoo’s 50 days of closure that occurred at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. | Laura Seitz, Deseret News Like the rest of us, Utah’s Hogle Zoo is clawing its way out of the pandemic, looking forward to a not-too-far-off future that will be filled with crowds at full capacity, no one wearing masks, good old boring normalcy — and hopefully the PTSD won’t be too bad.

Ducks no match for the Avalanche again as trade deadline looms

ANAHEIM — On the eve of the NHL’s trade deadline, the Ducks lost a 4-1 decision to the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday at Honda Center. Not that the West Division-leading Avalanche needed any help, but the Ducks gave them some with a first-period giveaway that led to Andre Burakovsky’s goal that made it 1-0 only 7:15 into the game. A dubious officiating decision then led to a five-on-three for the Avalanche in the second period. With the Ducks’ Nicolas Deslauriers already in the penalty box for a legitimate hooking penalty, teammate Max Jones was whistled for tripping, giving Colorado a two-man advantage that led to Gabriel Landeskog’s power-play goal that made it 2-0 at 6:35 of the second. Jones gestured in disgust at the replay shown on the overhanging scoreboard. Deslauriers, seated next ...

Masters: Hideki Matsuyama wins the Masters to become first Japanese major champion

Hideki Matsuyama has made history as the first male golfer from Japan to win a major championship. Matsuyama held on after knocking one in the water at the 15th, shooting a 1-over 73 to win the Masters by one stroke. A five-time winner on the PGA Tour, Matsuyama took control of the tournament with a brilliant 65 on Saturday, doing his best work after a rain delay. Xander Schauffele closed within two strokes after Matsuyama made bogey at No. 15. But Schauffele put one in the water at the 16th and took the first triple-bogey of his major championship career. That cleared the way for Matsuyama to claim the green jacket. He made a bogey at No 18 but that was enough to hold off Masters rookie Will Zalatoris, who stamped himself as a future star with a 9-under 279. Matsuyama was one shot better...

SF Giants cruise to sweep of Rockies, Anthony DeSclafani keys team’s first shutout since 2019

SAN FRANCISCO — Led by a lights-out starting rotation and an offense that’s blasting timely home runs, the 6-3 Giants cruised to a sweep of the Rockies at Oracle Park and have won four straight games. After going 29-31 in an abbreviated 60-game season last summer, the Giants are back over .500 in the Gabe Kapler era (35-34) and built off a series win over the Padres by limiting the Rockies to four runs in this weekend’s three-game set. Led by six shutout innings from right-hander Anthony DeSclafani, the Giants won 4-0 Sunday and recorded the team’s first shutout since September 13, 2019, when Tyler Beede tossed eight scoreless frames in a 1-0 win over the Marlins. A stellar outing from DeSclafani dropped the Giants’ rotation ERA to 2.24 on the season as the club has now had their starters

Sharks trade Stefan Noesen, acquire draft pick as part of three-team deal

The San Jose Sharks acted as a third party in a blockbuster trade between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday, and received another selection in this year’s draft as part of the deal. In one trade, Columbus sent forward Nick Foligno to San Jose, retaining 50 percent of what is remaining on Foligno’s $5.5 million salary for this season. The Sharks then sent Foligno and forward Stefan Noesen to the Maple Leafs for Toronto’s own 2021 fourth-round selection. San Jose is retaining 25 percent of what was left on Foligno’s contract. Additionally, Toronto sent their first-round selection in this year’s draft and a fourth-round selection in next year to Columbus. Noesen, 28, split the season between the Sharks and Barracuda.

Dodgers do ‘pitching gymnastics’ in advance of first series vs. Padres

LOS ANGELES >> Right-hander Dustin May will return to the Dodgers’ rotation and start on eight days’ rest Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies. The Dodgers skipped May’s turn in the rotation this weekend, going with Clayton Kershaw on regular rest (four days off) Sunday instead. By inserting May into the Rockies series, the Dodgers have lined up Walker Buehler, Kershaw and Trevor Bauer to start the three-game series against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park next weekend with Buehler and Kershaw each getting extra rest before their starts. That they lined that trio up for their first series against the Padres does not seem like a coincidence. “I think that you can read into it any way you want,” Roberts said Sunday. “But I think that making sure guys are rested and feeling good goi

Both men were from the same political party and even hailed from adjoining states — Boehner was a conservative Midwestern Republican, while McConnell the face of the South's dominant influence within the party. However, while promoting his new memoir, "On the House: A Washington Memoir," Boehner made some revealing observations about McConnell.
