Texas' magic number remained at five for clinching its third straight division crown.

Scheduled starter Yu Darvish was scratched by the Rangers about 2 hours before the first pitch because of a stiff neck. Scott Feldman took his place.

The A's lost the opener of the four-game series 5-4 Monday night. The teams play five more times over the final eight games of the season.
