      Royals drop close one to Rangers 3-1

      Matt Garza pitched eight impressive innings for his first victory in six starts and the Texas Rangers kept close in the playoff race, beating the Kansas City Royals 3-1 on Saturday night.

      The Rangers won for only the fifth time in 19 September games.

      They remained a half-game behind Cleveland for the second AL wild-card berth.

      The Royals, out of the playoffs since winning the 1985 World Series, dropped 3 1/2 games in back of the Indians.
