The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim come into the Bay Area to play a three game series with the Oakland Athletics.

The Angels sit 2.5 games behind the American League West-leading Texas Rangers after the Rangers shut Oakland out and the Yankees defeated the Angels on Sunday.

This three game series is crucial for the Angels' chances of catching the Rangers in the playoff race. 

Sunday night the Oakland Athletics were statistically eliminated from the playoffs by the Texas Rangers. They now are positioned 16.5 games behind the Rangers with only 16 games left to play on their schedule.  

Don't count on the A's rolling over any time soon however. The Seattle Mariners were evidence of that after splitting the four game series with the Angels recently. Still, the Athletics are struggling.

The A's are 44-60 since their hot streak ended in May.
