Phillies-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- A postseason appearance once seemingly guaranteed for the Oakland Athletics is looking increasingly precarious after they were swept by baseball's worst team.

Oakland looks to Jon Lester to help it avoid yet another pitfall Friday night when it continues its final nine-game homestand with the first of three against the last-place Philadelphia Phillies.

The Athletics (83-69) fell 7-2 to the Rangers on Thursday, marking the first time they'd been swept at home since a May 5-7 series versus Seattle. Oakland fell a half-game behind Kansas City for the top wild-card spot less than six weeks after having a four-game cushion for baseball's best record.
