ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Jose Trevino blooped a two-run single, capping a four-run rally in the bottom of the ninth inning that sent the Texas Rangers over the Colorado Rockies 13-12.

WHIPPANY, N.J. (AP) - Morris Claiborne's head was spinning at times and his heart tugging at him for several weeks last summer. The New York Jets cornerback was trying to settle in with his new team, but his mind was on his newborn twins _ one of whom was born extremely underweight. Claiborne's days were whirlwinds of hurrying between practices, meetings and the hospital. The twins are healthy nearly a year later, and Claiborne plans to celebrate a very special Father's Day.
