Texas got an exciting glance at its future, but the Rangers weren't ready to compete effectively against the Los Angeles Angels for the AL West title in September without injured All-Stars Michael Young and slugger Josh Hamilton.
The Rangers (87-75) still had only their second winning season since last making the playoffs 10 years ago. They had one more victory than Detroit or Minnesota, the AL Central teams who will play a one-game tiebreaker for that division title.
