The Angels' loss to the Rangers in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader clinched a playoff spot for Texas, the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles.

But where does that leave the A's?

Oakland can clinch a Wild Card spot Monday with either a win OR a loss by both the Rays and Angels.The A's will win the A.L. West if and only if they sweep the Rangers. The Rangers can clinch the A.L. West by winning any of the three games in Oakland.If the Rangers beat the A's and both the Rays and Angels lose on Monday, the Rangers could clinch the division and the A's a Wild Card spot at the same moment.
