Rangers-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- After padding their wild-card lead with a series win against a fellow contender, the Oakland Athletics enter a favorable home stretch versus a pair of last-place teams.

The club opens a three-game series against the Texas Rangers Tuesday night with Scott Kazmir trying to re-establish some sustained success for himself and the team.

Oakland (83-66), which has Philadelphia on deck for three games after Texas, took two of three in Seattle over the weekend. After Sunday's 4-0 victory, it has won consecutive games for the first time in three weeks leading into a nine-game homestand, its last of the season.
