MONTERREY, Mexico _ Alex Bregman played so well in Mexico that he’s already looking forward to a return trip. Bregman hit a grand slam and the Houston Astros blew out the Los Angeles Angels for the second straight day, 10-4 on Sunday.

ARLINGTON, Texas _ Rougned Odor, Asdrúbal Cabrera and Drew Smyly all found reasons to exhale. Odor and Cabrera each homered and combined for seven RBIs, Smyly came off the injured list to pitch four strong innings and the Texas Rangers rolled past the Toronto Blue Jays 10-2 on Sunday.

DALLAS _ Colton Parayko was shooting to score for the St. Louis Blues, and delivered a stunning blow to the Dallas Stars even without getting the puck in the net. Parayko’s hard shot from the slot hit Ben Bishop’s left shoulder, knocking the goalie onto his back and deflecting the puck to deep in the circle. Alexander Steen took a shot from there that was redirected by Jaden Schwartz over the still laid-out goalie in a 4-1 victory to force Game 7 in the second-round Western Conference semifinal series.

THE WOODLANDS, Texas _ Scott McCarron won the Insperity Invitational on Sunday for his 10th PGA Tour Champions victory and second in three weeks. The 53-year-old McCarron held off Scott Parel by two strokes, closing with a 5-under 67 to finish at 17-under 199 and match Fred Couples (2010) for the best score since the event moved to The Woodlands Country Club in 2008.
