The Glendale-based welterweight prospect suffered just the second loss of his four-year professional career in a unanimous six-round decision, with judges Gale Van Hoy, David Sutherland and Raul Caiz all scoring the bout 58-56 in favor of Charlo, a Houston native.

A lot of people like to use the phrase "is comprised of" -— about 136 million of them, if a recent Google search is any indication. "Houston is comprised of many neighborhoods," one website tells me. "Workforce planning is comprised of a number of key tasks," another insists. And, my favorite, "Erythrocyte spectrin is comprised of many homologous triple helical segments. " (Like we didn't know that already.) Skimming through all these uses of "comprised of" supports my longtime suspicion that people use this phrase when they're trying to sound official, formal or informed.

Anaheim ? Less than halfway through the season, it appears the Houston Astros are thankful they made a wise investment. The Astros lost starting shortstop Adam Everett to a serious knee injury June 14 when he fractured his right fibula in a violent collision with robust outfielder Carlos Lee. Everett will likely miss the next two months. Fortunately for the Astros, they have been able to alleviate the concerns of Everett's absence by turning to a former area star to provide quality at bats and defensive stability around the infield.

GLENDALE — It's been a whirlwind 2006 for Jason Hirsh, to say the least. And Tuesday might very well have been the most shocking day of the year, as the 2000 St. Francis graduate was dealt by the Houston Astros to the Colorado Rockies. "It's been quite a ride and it's not getting any slower," said Hirsh from his parents' Burbank home. Hirsh was part of a five-player deal that sent the 24-year-old right-handed pitcher to the Rockies along with pitcher Taylor Buchholz and center fielder Willy Taveres for right-handed pitchers Miguel Asencio and Jason Jennings, Colorado's all-time wins leader.
