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

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Dee Gordon homered on the first pitch thrown by Yu Darvish, and the Miami Marlins went on to set a franchise record for runs in a 22-10 victory over the Texas Rangers. Christian Yelich homered and had three doubles for the Marlins. Darvish gave up a career-worst 10 runs in 3 2-3 innings. Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre homered and had two doubles, giving him 2,996 career hits before getting ejected from the game in the eighth inning.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Cameron Rupp hit two home runs and had four RBIs and Aaron Nola set a career high with 10 strikeouts over six innings to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 9-0 victory over the Houston Astros. Maikel Franco homered and doubled and Tommy Joseph had two doubles for the Phillies, who had 14 hits while setting season highs with five doubles and nine extra-base hits.

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Ezekiel Elliott is shunning reporters while smiling for fans as off-field issues linger for the star running back of the Dallas Cowboys. Last year's NFL rushing leader as a rookie, Elliott reported for his second training camp a week after he was involved in a bar fight. And the NFL is still considering whether to punish him over a domestic incident that prosecutors in Ohio declined to pursue. Elliott is one of several Dallas players facing issues away from the field.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) - A year after missing all of the preseason on his way to an injury-shortened regular season, J.J. Watt made his return to training camp for the Texans. Practice never felt quite so good for the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

(AP) - The traditional two-a-day football practices of yesteryear are a thing of the past. The NCAA approved a plan this year that prevents teams from holding multiple practices with contact in a single day. Officials are hoping the rule change reduces the head injuries that had become all too common this time of year.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - All-Star left-hander Dallas Keuchel is set to rejoin the Houston Astros' rotation on Friday at the Detroit Tigers. The 2015 AL Cy Young Award winner has not pitched since June 2 due to a neck injury that sent him to the disabled list for the second time this year.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers have re-signed guard Tyler Ennis, a late-season addition who played his way into a job. Los Angeles acquired Ennis from the Houston Rockets on Feb. 23 in a trade for Marcelo Huertas. Ennis appeared in 22 games for the Lakers, averaging 7.7 points and 2.4 assists.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets claimed wide receiver-kick returner Lucky Whitehead two days after the Cowboys cut him following a shoplifting charge in what turned out to be a case of mistaken identity. A man used Whitehead's identity to steal $40 worth of food and drink from a Virginia convenience store in June. Dallas released him Monday after reports that Whitehead was arrested and subsequently cited for missing a court hearing.
