Playoff race: Rangers, Angels keeping pace

Both the Angels and Rangers are on little winning streaks as of late. The Angels took out the Athletics 4-1 as Jered Weaver won his career-high 17th game to spark a modest two-game winning streak. That's enabled them to keep pace with the streaking Rangers, winners of their last three and fresh off a 9-1 drubbing of the Indians, topped off with a Josh Hamilton (pictured) grand slam. The race remains the closest of all at three games.

Eyeballing the schedules, Texas has the far easier road. Their next 10 games are against opponents with a losing record before finishing the year up with a three-game dustup against the Angels. But the deficit L.A. is currently facing at three games figure to be a figure higher than that by the time the two teams meet. The Rangers have six games against Seattle and three against Oakland. The Angels do get three against Oakland and also add three against Baltimore, but also face a four-game set in Toronto. That's not going to be an easy series, as the Blue Jays are a solid team -- moreso than the Indians, whom Texas is finishing up a series with.
