Los Angeles Teams

Here's something you don't see every day: The Dodgers got six RBIs from pinch-hitters in their 8-3 win as Matt Kemp hit a grand slam and Chris Taylor had a two-run double. Also, Clayton Kershaw returned, Max Muncy stayed incredible with another home run and the Dodgers are 24-9 since that 16-26 start.

Ilya Kovalchuk's selection of the Los Angeles Kings for his next NHL destination was eight years in the making. In 2010, he only had two teams he was considering: The New Jersey Devils, with whom he would sign a ridiculous (and illegal, it turns out) 17-year contract; and the Kings, who courted him heavily. "New Jersey offered more money. Simple as that. We threw everything we had at him while leaving cap space necessary to sign our kids," said CEO Tim Leiweke at the time. Leiweke is now in Seattle, closing in on bringing an NHL team there. Kovalchuk, 35, is now a member of the Kings for $6.25 million annually for the next three seasons. Funny how things work out.
