DFW_6364-1OAKLAND, Calif. -- Cole Hamels pitched seven shutout innings, Adrian Beltre hit a two-run homer and the Texan Rangers clinched the American League West crown with a 3-0 victory against the Oakland Athletics on Friday night at the Oakland Coliseum.

The Rangers (91-63) won the West for the second straight year and for the fourth time in the past seven seasons. They've made the postseason five times overall in that span and reached the World Series in 2010 and 2011 but lost both years.

"It's just the first step," Beltre said from a champagne-soaked clubhouse. "It's just the first step. It's not easy to get where we are right now. We took the first step to win the division and get into the playoffs. We have a good enough team to win the World Series. That's our goal. We're going to celebrate today, but we know this is not just what we accomplished. We want to accomplish a lot more things."

Hamels (15-5) allowed six hits, struck out seven and walked two. He won for the first time since Aug. 25 against Cleveland. Hamels went 0-1 with a 10.50 ERA in his previous four starts. But he looked ready for the postseason in a rematch against the A's and right-hander Kendall Graveman, seven days after allowing six runs over six innings and

Diarse caught the ball on a quick slant before shedding the tackle attempt of SMU redshirt freshman safety Kevin Johnson to get free in the secondary. He completed the long score to give TCU a 13-3 advantage.

Hill threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to sophomore receiver Jaelan Austin with 7:17 remaining in the third quarter to increase the margin to 17. Junior Brandon Hatfield kicked field goals of 25 and 30 yards to boost the lead to 26-3.

Junior running back Trevorris Johnson capped the strong second-half run with a 14-yard touchdown run to make it a 30-point margin with 4:47 remaining.

DFW_3281-1ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jered Weaver reached a milestone, along with beating the Texas Rangers again.

The 33-year-old right-hander picked up the 150th win of his career and the Los Angeles Angels held on to beat the Rangers 5-4 Wednesday night at Globe Life Park.

Weaver joined Chuck Finley (165 wins) as the only pitchers in franchise history with 150.

"It just means that I've been here for a little while and been a part of some pretty good teams and some winning teams," said Weaver, 18-8 lifetime against Texas. "It's one of things I'll think about when I'm done, take it all in, but it was a good team win today."

After watching Texas rally to win the first two games of the series, the Angels' bullpen pitched three shutout innings to back Weaver. Mike Trout's three-run home run gave Los Angeles a lead it wouldn't surrender.

The Rangers (90-63) had their magic number to clinch the American League West remain at two after finishing out a 3-3 homestand. Texas also holds a one-game lead on Cleveland (88-63) for the best record in the AL.

Weaver (12-12) wasn't his sharpest, but he added a victory his career-long mastery of the

DFW_0266-1ARLINGTON, Texas -- Another case of walk-off heroics inched the Texas Rangers closer to the American League West title and a postseason berth.

Ian Desmond drove in Elvis Andrus in the ninth inning Monday night to give the Rangers a 3-2, comeback win over the Los Angeles Angels at Globe Life Park.

While their latest rally wasn't overly dramatic, the Rangers added to their baseball-best total of comeback victories (46) after taking the opener of the three-game series with their AL West rivals.

Texas (89-62) reduced its magic number to clinch the division to four pending the outcome of the Seattle Mariners' late game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Rangers also snapped a two-game skid.

With the playoffs basically a foregone conclusion, the Rangers still see no reason to lay off the gas now.

"Just play it straight," Desmond said after a 3-for-5 night. "Just try to

DFW_3632-1HOUSTON -- Manager A.J. Hinch utilized the best arms in the Houston bullpen to stifle the Texas Rangers' bats while his club's offense clawed back from a modest deficit, but with those options exhausted and the game merely tied, things quickly turned sour for the Astros.

Rougned Odor homered leading off the 12th inning, and the Rangers edged the Astros 4-3 Monday night at Minute Maid Park.

Odor finished 3-for-4 with a double and smacked his 31st home run off Astros right-hander James Hoyt (1-1).

Texas (86-59) extend its lead over the Astros (75-69) in the American League West to 10 1/2 games, improving to 14-3 against Houston this season while matching the club record for wins through 145 games.

"I don't know," Odor said when asked to explain the Rangers' success against Houston. "I like playing against the Astros. I always like to play against the Astros. I like to hit in this ballpark. I just like it. I feel really comfortable here."

Right-handers Michael Feliz, Luke Gregerson, Will Harris and Ken Giles kept Texas hitless for five innings. Odor snapped that string with a 375-foot blast to right field.

"Our bullpen stepped up even in roles they are not used to. They are pitching in

DFW_0875-1FRISCO, Texas – Mauro Diaz had a goal in three assists to lead FC Dallas to its second Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup title in franchise history in front of a standing-room crowd of 16, 612 fans tonight at Toyota Stadium.

FC Dallas went down 1-0 in the sixth minute when a turnover in its defensive third of the field was quickly sent to Juan Agudelo at the top of the box by Gershon Koffie. Agudelo battled with FC Dallas center back Matt Hedges and got off a curling shot to the back post that whistled over the right shoulder of goalkeeper Chris Seitz.

Diaz accepted a pass from Mauro Rosales in a similar position in the 12th minute of the match and earned a free kick for FC Dallas. The Argentine playmaker attempted to clip a shot over the wall but caught a piece of defender Jose Goncalves, who jumped and deflected the shot with his head to deny Diaz.

Diaz worked his magic again in the 15th minute. Following an FC Dallas corner kick, Michael Barrios and Carlos Gruezo cycled the ball back to Diaz and Dallas' No. 10 crossed a ball into the feet of Maxi Urruti. The forward took the ball down out of the air perfectly, setting up a full volley attempt from close range that the striker would not miss. Urruti hammered a shot low, below the arm of Revolution goalkeeper Brad Knighton and into the far corner of the net. The goal was Urruti's second of
