ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Elvis Andrus delivered an RBI single with one out in the ninth inning and the Texas Rangers beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 Saturday night. It was the second time in three games that the Rangers scored in their final at-bat to beat Kansas City.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Marc Gasol hit a 12-foot floater with 0.7 seconds left in overtime, and the Memphis Grizzlies beat the San Antonio Spurs 110-108 Saturday night to even up their first-round series at 2-2. The Grizzlies won despite blowing a 10-point lead with 7:38 left in regulation and 23 turnovers that San Antonio turned into 31 points. Game 5 is Tuesday night in San Antonio.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Maynor Figueroa scored his first goal of the season and Jesse Gonzalez earned his 10th career shutout and FC Dallas defeated Sporting Kansas City 1-0 Saturday night.

HOUSTON (AP) - Erick Torres scored his MLS-leading seventh goal of the season and the Houston Dynamo beat the San Jose Earthquakes 2-0 Saturday. Houston is unbeaten, and all of its four wins have come, at home.
