LAS VEGAS (AP) - Houston resident Michael Dyer has gone out in third place at the no-limit Texas Hold 'em main event of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. The 32-year-old was eliminated Saturday, the third day of play at the final table. He takes home $3.75 million. Dyer opened the day with 26.2 million chips and put his last 22.2 million on the line on ace of hearts and 10 of diamonds. But Tony Miles had the strongest hand.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Rookie Yefry Ramirez and four relievers combined on a four-hitter, Jonathan Schoop drove in a run with a sixth-inning sacrifice fly and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Texas Rangers 1-0 in a matchup of last-place teams. Making his fourth start and bidding for his first major league victory, Ramirez pitched five innings of two-hit ball before being pulled in a scoreless game. Brad Brach got the win and Zach Britton earned his third save.

HOUSTON (AP) - Gerrit Cole struck out eight in 5 2/3 strong innings, and the Houston Astros hit three home runs in a 9-1 win over the Detroit Tigers. Cole allowed one run and three hits with four walks after being activated from the bereavement list prior to the game. Josh Reddick and Evan Gattis hit back-to-back solo homers in the fifth to chase Detroit starter Michael Fulmer. Tyler White added a two-run shot to left in the seventh.

HOUSTON (AP) - Houston third baseman Alex Bregman is a first time All-Star. He will appear in his first Home Run Derby next week and has tried his hand at modeling to help promote a new art, fashion and music event during All-Star week called MLB Assembly. The Astros' rising star is embracing all these new experiences and can't wait to soak up everything as the festivities near.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (AP) - Tim Howard made a point blank save late in the first half and the Colorado Rapids held on for a scoreless draw with the Houston Dynamo.
