MLB Standings: Rangers Getting Closer To Playoff Berth

The Texas Rangers dropped two of three this weekend to the Seattle Mariners, but their return to the playoffs is all but secured going into the final few games of the regular season. Texas currently holds a four-game lead over the Oakland A's with 10 games to play. Since Oakland currently holds the second AL Wild Card, that four-game lead also comes into play if Oakland catches Texas.
