Rangers-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- The Oakland Athletics held a four-game lead in the AL West in early August, but now are on the verge of being eliminated from division contention.

Still leading the wild-card race, the A's try to end Derek Holland's recent success and keep the Texas Rangers from matching their season high with a fifth consecutive victory Wednesday night.

With a loss Wednesday and a win by the first-place Los Angeles Angels, Oakland (83-67) would be left with the wild card as its only route to the postseason. A loser in 23 of 34, the A's hold a one-game lead over Kansas City and are two ahead of Seattle in that race.
