Sandwiched between Mazara's solo home run and a solo home run by Shin-Soo Choo in the top of the third inning on Friday, the 21 innings without a run marked a season long drought for Texas.
Three straight Rangers losses to the Oakland Athletics and three straight Twins victories against Detroit have Texas on the brink of elimination.
The loss moves the Rangers to 76-78, four games behind the Minnesota Twins for the second Wild Card with eight to play. It was it 20th homer of the season and 97th RBI. "We just couldn't get anything going".
How Rangers hitters fared: After collecting four hits Saturday in a 1-0 shutout loss, they collected one run on three hits.

"The changeup was really good tonight so we used it", Graveman said. "I can't explain it. Those guys played us very well". Of course, it appears to be too little, too late for them to escape the Bay unscathed as the loss dropped them to 5.5 games back of Minnesota for a playoff spot.
"We're still trying. It's not set in stone yet". We need it. So go out there and do my job and try to go six or seven tomorrow and win.
Olson homered following a leadoff walk to Khris Davis, his 13th home run in September and his 16th in his last 23 games.

The Athletics came into Saturday night's game with a chance to play spoiler against the Wild Card-hopeful Texas Rangers.
"When he's ahead in the count, he can be a tough guy to deal with", Melvin said. He definitely has the ability. In any case, this series wasn't going to be easy as Oakland always has been a problem for the Rangers no matter how good Texas would be and how terrible Oakland would be. Oakland is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall and 7-0 in their last 7 home games while the over is 8-3 in their last 11 division matchups. "I think everything was working", Cotton said. Cotton may have gotten the better of the Rangers in his last outing against Texas, but Perez has been easier to trust as of late with Texas winning eight of his last nine starts, so I'll take a shot with Texas to salvage a win in the series finale on Sunday. Delino DeShields singled in the sixth against Simon Castro. Beltre spent time on the 10-day DL this month with a left hamstring strain. He hits the first ball out to right-center field like nobody else can.
The A's extended their lead to 7-0 in the sixth.
"We've got a young core", Phegley said. "It's good to see".
