ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Oakland Athletics are still waiting on their third straight trip to the playoffs. Ben Gedeon Jersey . On this night, they had only themselves to blame. The As couldnt take advantage of their first chance to clinch an AL wild-card spot on their own, allowing homers to rookie Jake Smolinski and Robinson Chirinos in a 5-4 win for the Texas Rangers on Saturday night. Oaklands lead over Seattle was cut to one game for the second wild-card slot. Almost two hours after the As lost, the Mariners beat the Los Angeles Angels 2-1 in 11 innings. The Athletics (87-74) will get another chance Sunday, scheduled as the final day of the regular season. These things are tough, As manager Bob Melvin said while the Mariners and Angels were still playing. It takes a while to digest these things, and you move on to whatever the next scenario is. The As have the second-worst record in the majors since they were 11 games up in the wild-card race and four games ahead of the AL West-winning Angels on Aug. 10. They have lost eight of 12. This time, they were beaten with trade deadline pickup Jeff Samardzija (5-6) facing spot starter Scott Baker after Derek Holland was a late scratch because of a migraine headache. The Rangers used eight pitchers to defeat the As for the fifth time in six games since last week. Spencer Patton (1-0), the fourth reliever, got his first major league win, and Neftali Feliz earned his 13th save. I was hoping that it wouldnt have to be that way, Texas manager Tim Bogar said. But that team over there, they always keep it close. Bottom line was, one pitcher, eight pitchers, it all works. Josh Donaldson and Josh Reddick had three hits apiece for Oakland, including singles in a two-run eighth that ended with Alberto Callaspos fly ball that was caught by Smolinski at the wall in right field with two runners on base. We cant get the one hit that we need to go to the playoffs, Reddick said. Its very frustrating. Donaldson, who couldnt run anywhere close to full speed because of a knee injury sustained a night earlier, homered to left for a 1-0 lead in the first, made a diving play for an out on a sharp grounder in the second, and beat out an infield single in the sixth. He was walking around the clubhouse after the game with an ice pack the size of a basketball on his knee. Pretty amazing, Melvin said. Struggling to run around the bases, obviously, but he wants to be in there and help the team win. Baker, who hadnt pitched since Sept. 5 after dealing with soreness in his right arm, was pulled in the fifth inning. Left-handers Alex Claudio and Michael Kirkman got both of their outs on double plays against the first hitters they faced. Patton recorded all three outs in the seventh. Samardzija had gone 23 straight innings without allowing an earned run when the Rangers got two in the first on consecutive RBI singles from Rougned Odor and Adrian Beltre. Smolinski made it 3-1 with his third home run of the season, a shot to left field in the fourth. Chirinos 13th homer was a two-run drive that put Texas ahead 5-2 in the seventh. MILESTONE FOR DUNN: Hollands headache put big Oakland designated hitter Adam Dunn in the lineup for his 2,000th game. The active leader in games played without a trip to the post-season singled and struck out twice before Jonny Gomes pinch-hit for him in the eighth. TRAINERS ROOM: Athletics: Donaldson, who injured his left knee making a back-handed stop at third base on Friday, said he was reassured by the Rangers medical staff that he didnt have any structural damage. Rangers: Holland wasnt ruled out as the starter in Sundays season finale after he was scratched. UP NEXT: Athletics: RHP Sonny Gray (13-10, 3.23) is 0-3 in five September starts and has just one win since Aug. 1. He is a loss away from matching the career-high, four-game losing streak he had last month. Rangers: Nick Martinez (5-11, 4.61) has a 2.12 ERA in his past five starts. He beat Houston on Tuesday for his first career home victory in his ninth start in Arlington. Martinez also beat Gray to complete a series sweep in Oakland last week. Adrian Peterson Jersey . A groundswell for raising the number of playoff qualifiers to seven in each conference figures to get plenty of support from the 32 owners. Most notably, Arizonas Bill Bidwill, who saw his Cardinals go 10-6 and not get in, while Green Bay (8-7-1) qualified by winning the NFC North. Pat Elflein Jersey . Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas appeared to be on track to gain election from the Baseball Writers Association of America on Wednesday, and Craig Biggio could join them. http://www.vikingsauthenticshop.com/Vikings-Alan-Page-Draft-Jersey/ . -- Michael Frazier II scored 21 points, Dorian Finney-Smith added 11 and No.Manhattan, KS (SportsNetwork.com) - Jake Waters threw for 294 yards with four touchdowns and also ran for a score to lead No. 11 Kansas State to a 51-13 win over Kansas in the Sunflower Showdown. Tyler Lockett had 119 yards on nine receptions with two touchdowns, while Curry Sexton also caught nine passes for 141 yards and a score for the Wildcats (9-2, 7-1 Big 12). It was awesome for us, Waters said of his connection with Lockett and Sexton. Tyler (Lockett) had a great game especially with breaking the (receptions) record in front of all our fans cheering us on. Lockett entered the game four receptions (217) and two touchdowns (26) shy of tying his father, Kevin, for the school record in each category. Charles Jones caught a touchdown pass from Waters and ran for another in the win. Michael Cummings went 16-for-27 for 139 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for the Jayhawks (3-9, 1-Cool, who have lost six straight meetings to their in-state rival. Kansas State, Baylor and TCU are tied atop the Big 12. The Wildcats wrap up their regular season next Saturday on the road in a pivotal matchup against Baylor. TCU, meanwhile, will host lowly Iowa State with both games deciding the Big 12 champion. We came out and they jumped all over us, said Kansas coach Clint Bowen. It was 14-0 before anything even happened and we did not need that. Kansas State forced a quick punt of Kansas on the opening possession of the game, then DeMarcus Robinsons 35-yard run down to the Jayhawks 14 set up Waters 1-yard touchdown run three plays later. Dante Barnett got the ball right back for the hosts, intercepting Cummings at the KU 44. Waters wasted little time putting more points on the board as he converted a 44-yard strike to Lockett for a 14-0 lead. Randall Evans then picked off Cummings on Kansas ensuing touch, and Matthew McCrane capped the 12-play, 74-yard drive with a 41-yard field goal. Kyle Rudolph Jersey. . Following a punt from each team, the Jayhawks finally got on the board with Cummings tossing a 27-yard TD to Nick Harwell at 8:42 in the second quarter. The Wildcats blocked the extra point. Morgan Burns proceeded to return the kickoff 65 yards deep into Kansas territory. Four plays later, Jones rushed it in from 11 yards out for a 24-6 lead. Lockett hauled in passes of 17 and 11 yards on consecutive plays late in the half, then concluded the drive with a 6-yard touchdown reception with 47 seconds left. The Wildcats continued to pour it on in the third. Waters opened the quarter with a 20-yard pass to Sexton. Kansas States signal-caller capped the drive with a 13-yard TD pass to Jones. Kansas didnt give in, however, as it marched down the field for a score on Cummings 19-yard TD toss to Trent Smiley, who recorded the first touchdown of his career. Waters hit Sexton for a 37-yard touchdown strike later in the third for a 45-13 advantage. McCrane knocked down a 52-yard field goal early in the fourth, and Jack Cantele kicked a 39-yard field goal later to account for the final margin. Game Notes Kansas still leads the all-time series 64-43-5 ... Sexton now has 940 receiving yards for the season. If he records 60 more over the final two games, he and Lockett will become the first pair of Kansas State receivers to eclipse over 1,000 yards in the same season ... Under head coach Bill Snyder, the Wildcats are 19-4 against Kansas, including a flawless mark since his return to the sideline in 2009 ... Kansas State outgained its opponent 505-197.
