(Sports Network) - The Kansas City Royals have yet to lose consecutive games this month, allowing them to stay in the hunt for a playoff spot. The Royals have a chance to make up ground this weekend as they host one of the occupants of a wild card spot, the Texas Rangers, in a three-game series that begins tonight. Kansas City has not made the postseason since winning the 1985 World Series and currently finds itself three games back of Texas and the Tampa Bay Rays for the two extra playoff spots. The Rangers and Rays have identical 83-69 records, putting them just a half-game ahead of the Cleveland Indians in the wild card race. Baltimore is one game ahead of Kansas City in the race as well. Though the Royals have alternated wins and losses over their last seven, they have gone 11-6 in September and have not lost two in a row since Aug. 30-31. They kept that streak intact by winning the rubber match of a three-game set with the Indians on Wednesday. "Every game is a must win," said starter Bruce Chen after the Royals 7-2 victory, which came a day after the club squandered a 3-0 lead in Tuesdays loss. Kansas Citys 42 wins at home this season are the most for the franchise since 2000 and this series marks the final one at home for the Royals this regular season. Texas, meanwhile, entered a four-game set with Tampa Bay even with the club atop the wild card standings and a split of the set by the clubs kept them right where they started. The Rangers will take it as a loss in Mondays opener pushed their losing streak to seven straight before they took two of the next three. They secured the split with Thursdays 8-2 win. "Were playing better baseball," said Texas Elvis Andrus, who drove in three runs on Thursday. "Thats how were looking right now. You can see how everything is starting to fall on track." Texas is on the road for the final time this regular season and has a favorable homestand to end the campaign, with seven straight against the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Martin Perez will try to pitch the Rangers to a win tonight and avoid a personal third straight setback. Perez has allowed seven runs over back-to-back losses after pitching to a 2.76 earned run average in winning six straight starts. He let up three runs in Sundays 5-1 decision versus Oakland over 6 1/3 innings. The As swept that three-game set and currently lead the Rangers by 6 1/2 games for first place in the AL West. The 22-year-old lefty faces the Royals for the first time and will be opposed by Ervin Santana tonight. Santana is 9-9 with a 3.23 ERA in 30 starts this season, his first with the Royals after beginning his career with eight seasons as a member of the Angels. The right-hander picked up his first victory since Aug. 4 last time out, besting Detroit 1-0 on Saturday. Santana gave up five hits and one walks over 6 2/3 scoreless innings, snapping a seven-start winless streak that saw him go 0-3 with a 4.76 ERA. Santana, 30, is 13-11 with a 5.79 ERA in 28 career meetings with Texas. The Rangers took two of three from the Royals at home on May 31-June 2 and have won seven of the last 10 meetings. They went 5-2 in Kansas City last year. Marquise Brown Ravens Jersey . Dallas (2-0-1) sits atop the Western Conference with an MLS-best seven points.

Watt pushed him around in a 1-on-1 pass-rushing drill and kept right on motoring toward the imaginary quarterback. Clark finally broke free with a swipe at the Houston Texans star that sent the pass rushers helmet bouncing on the ground. "Dont get mad when you get beat," Watt hollered at Clark. That turned into the theme of Wednesdays joint workout in full pads, one which ended with a lot of jawing and posturing after Texans safety D.J. Swearinger loudly celebrated his interception of Peyton Manning in an 11-on-11 drill. "I picked off Peyton today and I guess that got them a little chippy," Swearinger said. "The offence did great, ran the ball down their throat, so, hey, I would get mad, too. Thats all it is: players making plays and people getting mad." Broncos cornerback Chris Harris said its one thing to pick off Manning and quite another to go all gaga over it. "His swag just went to another level," Harris said. So did the Broncos indignation. "Theres about 200 guys out here," Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib said. "Its hard to avoid." No punches were thrown, however, as is so often is the case in these types of get-togethers. After all, players realize its a little too close to final cuts and the start of the season to risk fighting at practice. "We wanted to stay clean out here," Swearinger said. "Were not out here to start nothing with nobody, were out here to get good work. Both teams got good work. It got a little chippy at the end, but its all football. Its part of the game." Broncos safety Rahim Moore said the chippy moments were actually a good sign. "Theyre no punks and neither are we," Moore said. "So at the end of the day you do all your talking with the pads. Today they had a great day, we had a great day. So I actually like it because theyve got a bunch of competitive guys that we would love to go against each other every day. Its a great way for us to see how we match up, so we love it. Its fun." It wasnt all frayed nerves and trash talking, either. Top draft pick Jadeveon Clowney and star left tackle Ryan Clady battled to a draw several times during the 1-on-1 pass-rushing drills that proved the highlight of the two-hour practice. Cllowney sought out Clady afterward and the two exchanged a fist bump in a show of sportsmanship.dddddddddddd. Clowney later smacked into tight end Jacob Tamme during a 9-on-7 drill and retreated to the Texans medical tent, where he sat out the final 45 minutes of practice. He didnt appear to be getting any sort of treatment, however, and appeared to walk off OK after practice ended. Asked what had happened to Clowney, Texans coach Bill OBrien said, "I dont know. I was in the middle of practice, so Ill find out." The team didnt issue any update, however. The Clowney-Clady matchup was one of the many benefits of the four hours of joint practices so far this week that both head coaches insist far outweigh the inevitable emotions that come with them. "You cant really simulate this when you go against each other," OBrien said. "The competition level rises, you see different schemes. You hear different communication on both sides of the ball. The coaches work together. Were able to talk to Denvers coaches and vice versa about some of the things theyre doing, what theyre looking for, what were looking for. I thought both teams worked very well together." Despite the pick at the end, Manning and the Broncos offence played much better than they had 24 hours earlier when Manning called out his teammates over a sloppy practice. "Im sure a lot of our guys noticed that he wasnt happy on the field," offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase said. "I spoke my mind in the meetings. Im not really going to do it out here for everybody to watch, but I said my piece. We made sure that we came out here and had a better day." The teams have one more joint practice Thursday, this time in shells and shorts, which should further reduce any extracurricular activity, before their preseason game Saturday night.
