Sports Minute: Here is the latest Texas sports news from The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Carlos Correa and the Houston Astros won their 11th straight game, finishing off a dominant 10-0 road trip by rallying past the Kansas City Royals 7-4. The World Series champion Astros swept their swing through Texas, Oakland and Kansas City, outscoring opponents 74-35. Last season, Houston had an 11-game winning streak end in Kansas City. This time, the Astros trailed 4-3 in the eighth inning before Correa led off with a tying homer.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Gabe Holt hit a tiebreaking single in the fifth inning and drove in an insurance run in the ninth, leading Texas Tech to a stunning 6-3 win over defending national champion Florida in the College World Series. The Red Raiders won their CWS opener for the first time in their three appearances. They did it against the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and a first-round draft pick in starting pitcher Brady Singer.

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. Rockies closer Wade Davis retired only one batter while walking four and allowing singles to Rougned Odor and Trevino.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Luke Bonfield hit the go-ahead home run in the fifth inning and Arkansas broke open the game with an eight-run sixth on its way to an 11-5 win over Texas in the College World Series. The Razorbacks scored double-digit runs for the fourth time in six NCAA Tournament wins and had their highest total in 28 CWS games. The Longhorns lost their third straight Omaha opener since 2011.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Yovani Gallardo is back with the Texas Rangers for the first time in three years. The right-hander who grew up in nearby Fort Worth was selected from the Triple-A Round Rock roster. He was set to start Sunday at home against the Colorado Rockies.

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.
