Rockies, Royals meet with eye on wild-card races

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Colorado Rockies and the Kansas City Royals, two teams hoping to reach the postseason, open a three-game series Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium.

The Rockies own the top spot in the National League wild-card race by a half-game over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Royals, who sit 1 1/2 games back of the second American League wild-card spot, are among eight teams within five games of the league's final playoff position.

Kansas City still has faint hopes of overtaking American League Central leader Cleveland after taking the final game of the series with the Indians 7-4 on Sunday. The Royals sit seven games back of the Indians.
