SEATTLE (AP) - Felix Hernandez threw six solid innings in his first start in nearly two months and got plenty of offensive support thanks to home runs by Mike Zunino, Ben Gamel and Kyle Seager, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Houston Astros 13-3 for their sixth straight win. A day after climbing over .500 for the first time this season, the Mariners continued their June surge thanks to an early punch of offense.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Lance Armstrong's $100 million fraud trial is months away, yet his fight with the government and former teammate-turned-rival Floyd Landis is heating up. Armstrong wants to bar testimony and evidence, including the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report that led to his downfall. Landis doesn't want Armstrong telling jurors about his own doping history or question his motives in a case that could earn him more than $20 million. Trial is scheduled for November.

CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) - Jordan Spieth shot a 1-under 69 to maintain a one-stroke lead in the Travelers Championship. A windy afternoon kept anyone from catching him at TPC River Highlands.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Evan Skoug hit a bases-clearing double and four TCU pitchers combined on a five-hitter to lead the Horned Frogs to a 9-2 win over Florida that forced a second Bracket 2 final at the College World Series.

The winner advances to the best-of-three finals starting Monday.

NEW YORK (AP) - The first matchup in the major leagues between Japanese stars Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers and Masahiro Tanaka of the New York Yankees drew a lot of interest from the Bronx to Tokyo.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - The Texas Supreme Court has refused to block a sex and race discrimination lawsuit filed against the University of Texas by former women's track coach Bev Kearney.

She argued that as a black woman, she was held to a tougher standard than a white male coach or other school officials she says were in relationships with subordinates.

HOUSTON (AP) - Maximiliano Urruti scored in the 59th minute and FC Dallas tied the Houston Dynamo 1-1 in the Texas Derby. Scored his ninth goal of the season and 10th goal in his last 16 games.
