Rangers need to sweep Astros to have postseason chance

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers saw their faint playoff hopes get all but extinguished over the weekend, leaving the start of a homestand against the in-state rival Houston Astros devoid of much drama or intrigue.

With the season on the line, Texas was swept by the A's in Oakland. An 8-1 loss on Sunday leaves the Rangers 5 1/2 games behind the Minnesota Twins for the second wild-card spot with seven games to play.

"We are making it tougher on ourselves," Texas third baseman/designated hitter Adrian Beltre said. "This was a bad weekend for us. We expected to win this series, and it didn't turn out that way. It's not set in stone yet, but we have to go back home and win as many games as we can."
