AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas lawmakers have revived a more narrowly focused version of a transgender "bathroom bill" like the one in North Carolina that sparked a national backlash, but the Texas law would apply only to public schools and not all bathrooms. By focusing on schools, Texas is hoping to avoid boycotts that hurt North Carolina. But the NFL, NBA, leading business lobbies and Hollywood celebrities have urged Texas to avoid the issue.

DETROIT (AP) - Mike Napoli homered to the camera platform beyond center field, and Yu Darvish beat Detroit yet again, helping the Texas Rangers to a 5-2 victory over the Tigers Sunday night. Darvish has won all seven of his starts against the Tigers, although this one was a bit of a struggle. He allowed two runs and five hits over five innings.

HOUSTON (AP) - Yan Gomes homered and tied a career high with five RBIs to lead the Cleveland Indians over the Houston Astros 8-6 Sunday and complete a three-game sweep. The Indians are 5-1 against Houston this season, dealing the Astros two of their three series losses.

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Billy Horschel won the AT and T Byron Nelson with a par on the first playoff hole Sunday after Jason Day pulled his 4-foot par putt left and past the hole. The playoff wrapped up the Nelson's 35th and final tournament in Irving. The event will shift next year to the new links-style Trinity Forest Golf Club south of downtown Dallas.

IRVING, Texas (AP) - PGA Tour player John Senden attended the final round of the AT and T Byron Nelson on Sunday with his 13-year-old son, who has a brain tumor. Senden has been on leave from the PGA Tour since withdrawing from the PGA Zurich Classic of New Orleans three weeks ago after learning of Jacob Senden's diagnosis.
