ARLINGTON, TEXAS — Unable to score, the Texas Rangers are fading out of the American League playoff picture.

Trevor Cahill limited Texas to one hit over seven innings and the last-place Oakland Athletics completed a three-game series sweep, their first in more than three months, with a 4-0 victory Wednesday night.

The Rangers are 1-5 on this homestand and have scored only one run in their four-game losing streak.

Texas, which has 17 games left, fell 6 1/2 games behind AL wild-card leader Boston. The Rangers trail the first-place Angels by six games in the AL West.
