MLB Standings: Rangers Remain AL's Finest Despite Loss To Royals

The Texas Rangers (80-55) still own the best record in the American League and the third-best record in all of baseball despite Tuesday's night loss to the mediocre Kansas City Royals.

The Rangers currently have a four-game lead on the second place Oakland Athletics (76-59) in the AL West with the A's dropping their two most recent games to the Los Angeles Angels (73-63). Furthermore, Texas also has a four-game lead on the AL's second-best teams, the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Yankees, who both own the same record as the A's.

The Rangers have two more in Kansas City before heading to the Tampa Bay Friday to take on the Rays (75-61), who currently sit 1.5 games back in the wild card race. The A's have one more game with the Angels then head up to Seattle to take on the Mariners in a weekend series.
