    The Detroit Pistons are heading downtown next season. Camiseta Jose Fernando Cuadrado . At the moment, theyre just headed downward.The Pistons have lost four straight, including the first two games of a four-game homestand. Theyll try to reverse their fortunes on Wednesday against another struggling team, the Miami Heat.Prior to the skid, Detroit won its first five games at its current home, The Palace of Auburn Hills, which opened in 1988. Owner Tom Gores announced on Tuesday that the team will move next season into the new downtown Detroit arena that will also house the NHLs Detroit Red Wings.First, the Pistons (6-9) need to rebound -- literally -- from their current doldrums. They have been outrebounded in 11 of their first 15 games despite the presence of center Andre Drummond, who led the league in that category last season.Boston and Houston grabbed key offensive rebounds in the late going of their last two defeats.It got better the last two games but its still not good, coach Stan Van Gundy said after his team fell to the Rockets 99-96 on Monday. Look, I know they dont want to hear it right now. Were all upset about the loss but, especially on the boards and even getting back on transition, were not competing as hard as we need to. In the half court, our defense is pretty good, but up and down the court we get lazy. And on the boards, were just not competing hard enough. Were going to have to toughen up to be able to accomplish what we want to accomplish.Forwards Marcus Morris and Tobias Harris combined for just four rebounds against Houston and Morris admits he need to do more.(Drummond) grabs all the rebounds, so its like the times where we think hes going to get it, we kind of pull out of there, he said. I consider myself a great rebounder, but hes also the best rebounder in the league, so at times we depend on him to get it because he normally does.Drummond will be matched up against another top young center in Hassan Whiteside. Miami (4-9) lost to lowly Philadelphia 101-94 on Monday despite a career-high 32 points from Whiteside.The Heat shot 38.6 percent from the field and 22.6 percent from 3-point range.Offensively we were struggling, Whiteside said to the media afterward. We got some good looks, shots that guys normally make. They didnt drop. It happens.Miami is in the midst of a four-game road swing. It has played the last four games without second-year forward Justise Winslow, who has a sore left wrist.Josh Richardson has been starting at small forward in his absence.Im definitely making progress, Winslow told the Florida Sun-Sentinel. I think the last couple of days have really helped, just getting some of the soreness out of there, but its still a little ways away. But its definitely getting better.The teams split their four meetings last season. Drummond averaged 12.5 points, 15.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in those games, while Whiteside countered with 14.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 3.5 blocks. Camiseta Roger Martinez . Its an influence in football and a big part of the game. Camiseta Duvan Zapata . Thousands of Southern California fans enveloped the Trojans to celebrate an improbable win secured by an interim coach, an inconsistent kicker and a thin defence that wouldnt break. .B. - Sebastien Auger made 44 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs edged the visiting Acadie-Bathurst Titan 2-1 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- For Bartolo Colon, life not only has begun again at 40, its even sweeter this time around. Colon pitched a four-hitter for his third shutout this season and centre fielder Chris Young robbed Albert Pujols of a home run to help the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-0 on Sunday. "Ive been trying to explain it all year and I cant," As manager Bob Melvin said when asked how Colon is still able to pitch at such a high level in his 16th big league season. "Hes a competitor. He loves to play the game and he loves pitching. Hes always in a great mood, and hes in an even better mood on the day hes pitching -- which you very rarely see with starting pitchers. Hes just pitching with a lot of confidence, and we have a lot of confidence when hes on the mound." Eric Sogard hit a two-run homer to back Colon (13-3), who struck out five and walked one. The right-hander, making his first start since returning from his third All-Star game, tied Max Scherzer and Adam Wainwright for the major league lead in wins while reducing his ERA to 2.52. "Its pretty amazing -- and he was sick today on top of it," Melvin added. "You saw the velocity. It was down all day, so he did it a little bit differently today with more movement and less power -- and he still got it done." Colon is 10-1 with a 1.46 ERA over his last 12 outings. "It seems like hes dipped into the fountain of youth," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Hes throwing the ball as well as he was 10 years ago, and theres obviously been a resurgence in his career. For a couple of years, it looked like age was catching up with Bart and his velocity wasnt quite there. But hes always had incredible command." The 116-pitch complete game was Colons 35th in 395 big league starts, and the shutout was the 12th of his career. Young preserved Oaklands ninth shutout of the year when he pulled back Pujols bid for his 492nd homer leading off the seventh. Pujols came up again in the ninth with runners at first and second and took a called third strike before Colon ended it by retiring Josh Hamilton on a fly to left. Melvin went to the mound after Colon gave up one-out singles to J.B. Shuck and Mike Trout, but returned to the dugout without him. "Hes never asked me for anything. Every time Ive taken him out of a game when it looked like he could go another inning, hes always been great about it," Melvin said. "But this was the first time he said, Give me one more baserunner." Colon, who spent four seasons with the Angels and became the second pitcher in club history to win a Cy Young Award with a career-high 21 wins in 2005, is 5-1 with a 1.62 ERA in eight starts against them since leaving as a free agent in October 2007. Colon set down the Angels in order in four of the first five innings. The only exception was the third, when he gave up a one-out single by Chris Iannetta and a walk tto Erick Aybar before retiring Shuck on a double-play grounder. Camiseta Leandro Castellanos. It was the 96th time that the Angels grounded into a double play, second-most in the majors behind St. Louis 98. "Ageless wonder," is how Angels first baseman Mark Trumbo described Colon after going 0 for 3. "Hes got a lot of movement on the ball. His pitches all start out at about the same place. You just have to try and gauge where its going to end up. A lot of times its off the fist. Its really tough to pick up any spin off his ball. Its a testament that hes able to throw games like this at the age that he is. Its obviously a little more going on than what you might see." Jerome Williams (5-6) was charged with six runs -- four earned -- and eight hits in five-plus innings. He lost his fourth straight decision since beating Baltimore on June 12. In his last four starts, the right-hander has allowed 20 earned runs over 13 innings for a 13.85 ERA -- raising his overall figure to 4.73. Sogard, the No. 9 hitter, had no RBIs in 40 career at-bats against the Angels until he came up in the third and drove a 1-0 pitch into the lower seats in the right-field corner for a 2-0 lead after a leadoff double by Young. It was Sogards second homer this season and sixth in 392 career at-bats. The As extended the margin to 4-0 in the fifth. Sogard singled before designated hitter Coco Crisp bunted for a hit and continued all the way to third on third baseman Alberto Callaspos throwing error past first base, which allowed Sogard to score from first. Four batters later, Brandon Moss singled home Crisp with two outs. The As got two more in the sixth after throwing errors by Iannetta and Trumbo, which increased the Angels total to an AL-worst 72. Josh Reddick was on the front end of a double steal with Young, and continued home when Iannettas throw caromed off Reddick and toward the dugout. Young scored when Trumbo charged Crisps slow bouncer to first and threw wildly past Iannetta at the plate. NOTES: Home Run Derby champion Yoenis Cespedes missed his third straight game because of a sore left wrist. "Until he actually gets in the batting cage and swings freely and then gets in there for batting practice, he wont play," Melvin said. "Id doubt tomorrow. We want to make sure he gets in swings on the field." ... Colon is 8-0 with a 2.25 ERA in his last nine starts against AL West teams, a stretch that began with a 10-4 win over the Angels last Aug. 7 at Oakland. ... RHP Tommy Hanson, who hasnt pitched for the Angels since June 20 because of a forearm strain, is slated to come off the disabled list Tuesday and start against Minnesota. ... Crisp has gone 82 at-bats without an extra-base hit since his solo homer on June 21 at Seattle against Hisashi Iwakuma. ... The Angels were 1 for 16 with runners in scoring position during the three-game series. ... Trout extended his hitting streak to a career-best 13 games.
