WASHINGTON (AP) - Angels slugger Albert Pujols has hit the 499th home run of his career. The first baseman hit a three-run shot beyond left field off Washington Nationals starter Taylor Jordan in the first inning this evening.

(AP) -- The San Jose Sharks can take a commanding 3-0 lead over the Los Angeles Kings in the NHL playoffs with a victory tonight in Los Angeles. The Kings will be hoping to bounce back into the series on their home ice after being outscored in the first two games 13-5. Just a year ago, the Kings rebounded after losing the first two games of a series against St. Louis and advanced all the way to the Western Conference finals.

DENVER (AP) - The San Francisco Giants have placed left-hander David Huff on the 15-day disabled list and recalled outfielder Juan Perez from Triple-A Fresno.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Golden State Warriors have agreed to terms to buy 12 acres of land in San Francisco's Mission Bay neighborhood to build a new arena. The team was originally hoping to build a new arena on San Francisco's waterfront but those plans faced opposition from critics concerned about traffic, environmental issues and blocked views of the Bay Bridge. The proposed arena will hold about 18,000 seats.
