Oakland Athletics (86-67) vs. Texas Rangers (91-62) 8:05 PM ET
The Texas Rangers seek to take another step toward sewing up the American League West title when they host the Oakland Athletics in Tuesday’s second contest of a four-game series. Texas has a five-game lead over the Athletics with nine games remaining after rallying to win the opener on Adrian Beltre’s ninth-inning single. Oakland has lost six of eight games but still has a two-game edge over the Los Angeles Angels for the AL’s second wild-card spot.
Josh Hamilton returned to the Texas lineup after missing five games due to sinus and vision problems. Hamilton smashed his 43rd homer, most in the majors. Beltre has 35 homers after hitting a game-tying two-run homer in the seventh two innings before delivering the game-winning hit. Beltre is 3-for-6 with two homers against Oakland starter Tommy Milone. The Athletics’ slump has coincided with the absence of leadoff hitter Coco Crisp, who continues to be sidelined due to a bout with pink eye. Oakland outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has five homers over his last 13 games and is batting .462 (18-for-39) against the Rangers this season.

With their playoff hopes all but gone, the Arizona Diamondbacks continue their final road trip of the regular season Tuesday as they begin a three-game series against the National League West champion San Francisco Giants. Arizona lost the finale of its four-game set in Colorado on Monday, a setback that dropped the club 5 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the second wild-card spot with nine contests remaining. The Diamondbacks recorded 33 runs and 48 hits while winning the first three games of their seven-game trek but were held to two runs and five hits in Monday's loss.
San Francisco rested its regulars Sunday, a day after clinching the division, and had its six-game winning streak snapped. It is 6-1 on its 10-game homestand and has won 10 of its last 12 overall contests. The Giants are four games behind NL East-leading Washington for the best record in the major leagues and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
