ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers are bidding farewell to their 25-year-old ballpark before moving across the street. The final homestand is this week at the ballpark where Kenny Rogers pitched a perfect game, Adrian Beltre got his 3,000th hit and the Rangers played in two World Series. The stadium also hosted an MLB All-Star game and the first interleague game. The Rangers next season will be playing in a new stadium with a retractable roof.

HOUSTON (AP) - George Springer hit a career-high three homers, Justin Verlander got his MLB-leading 20th win and the Houston Astros clinched their third straight AL West title in grand fashion, routing the Los Angeles Angels 13-5. The Astros improved to 102-54 and remained a half-game ahead of the Yankees for the best record in the majors.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Dak Prescott threw two touchdown passes to Amari Cooper before running for another score, and the Dallas Cowboys pulled out of a first-half funk as huge favorites in a 31-6 victory over the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins had a great chance to lead at the break as 22-point underdogs when Kenyan Drake fumbled on first down from the Dallas 7-yard line in the final minute of the second quarter. Josh Rosen was 18 of 29 for 200 yards without a TD or interception in his first start for Miami.

CARSON, Calif. (AP) - Deshaun Watson threw for 351 yards and three touchdowns in the Houston Texans' 27-20 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. J.J. Watt had two of the Texans' five sacks of Philip Rivers, who passed for 318 yards. Keenan Allen caught 13 passes for a career-high 183 yards and two touchdowns, but the Chargers have a losing record after three games for the fifth consecutive season.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Taco Charlton's second chance in the NFL began with a sack against his former team. Charlton had Miami's only sack of the Dallas Cowboys' Dak Prescott in a 31-6 loss. It came only three days after he was claimed off waivers by the Dolphins. The Cowboys released their 2017 first-round pick to make room on the roster for the debut of former Miami defensive end Robert Quinn.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Zdenek Ondrasek scored to help Dallas tie New York City 1-1. Valentin Castellanos notched the first goal for New York City (16-5-10) in the first minute on a shot 11 yards away from the right side of the box, assisted by Anton Tinnerholm.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Sam Ehlinger passed for four touchdowns and No. 12 Texas ended four years of frustration against Oklahoma State with a 36-30 win Saturday night to open the Longhorns' Big 12 schedule. Ehlinger had his third four-touchdown passing game of the season for the Longhorns. Texas had lost four in a row to the Cowboys.

(AP) - LSU has earned a reputation the last decade or so as a program that relies on defense and usually does just enough on offense. That's what makes it so surprising to see the fourth-ranked Tigers emerge as the nation's highest-scoring team. LSU's 231 points represent the highest scoring total ever for a Southeastern Conference team through its first four games.
