Rangers 7-0, Mariners 2-5

Uh-oh, another faceplant by Derek Holland.

After a doubleheader split the Rangers trail Boston by 4 in the Wild Card and Anaheim by 6 in the West with 20 games remaining.

If the Red Sox (who swept a doubleheader) and Angels (who never ever never lose) maintain their .600 paces they'll each go 12-8 down the stretch.

To catch tie Boston, Texas would need to finish 16-4 and to catch Anaheim the Rangers would have to go 18-2.

Daunting, to say the least. Not impossible. Not totally implausible. Just friggin' difficult.

Was Sunday the day where baseball ends and football begins?
