LA Galaxy defeat San Jose Earthquakes 2-0. The Galaxy still looked to be reeling from Sunday night's 4-0 loss against the Colorado Rapids when San Jose scored a goal in the second minute. Fortunately for the Galaxy the goal was waved off by an off-sides call, and the Galaxy went on to score two goals in the first half. David Beckham scored his first goal in the MLS in the ninth minute assisted by Landen Donavon and Donavon scored a goal in the 37th minute assisted by Beckham in the Galaxy's victory.

LA Kings defeat San Jose Sharks 4-2. Coming off a 5-2 loss in the first game of the home-and-home series in San Jose, the Kings came back beat the Sharks despite giving up a goal in the opening minute of the game. The Kings knocked off the division champs on their way to an #1 overall pick in the draft.

LA Angels defeat Minnesota Twins 5-4. Angels pitcher Ervin Santana pitched six innings giving up two runs and four hits in direct contrast to his road performances last season. He went 1-10 on the road with a 8.38 ERA before being demoted to AAA last season. The Angels take three of four games from the Twins and come home for a weekend series against the Texas Rangers tonight.

Notable Notes

The Detroit Tigers are the only winless team in baseball. According to Tiger's manager Jim Leland, "We've looked like a dead club." The Tigers, favored by a lot of experts to be in the World Series, were swept by the Kansas City Royals. Now that's gotta hurt.

In the world of odd lawsuits, Dodgers commentator Steve Lyons lost his appeal in a lawsuit against Fire Insurance. Take a long guess why. Well apparently Lyons settled a civil sexual assault lawsuit brought on by a woman with ample chesticles, and he sued Fire Insurance for not adequately defending him as part of his home-owner's insurance. I'm not a legal expert or anything, but one thing to take away from this story is that Steve Lyons likes big tits.
