Unable to score, the Texas Rangers are fading out of the AL playoff picture.
Trevor Cahill limited Texas to one hit over seven innings and
the last-place Oakland Athletics completed a three-game series
sweep, their first in more than three months, with a 4-0 victory
The Rangers are 1-5 on this homestand, and have scored only one
run in their four-game losing streak.
Texas, which now has 17 games left, began the day 5½ games
behind wild-card leader Boston and six behind the AL West-leading
Los Angeles Angels. The Red Sox and Angels played Wednesday night
at Fenway Park.
