The Houston Dynamo have put together quite a run up the Eastern Conference standings the last six weeks, and the next step in that run could lead to first place when the Dynamo take on the New York Red Bulls tonight at 7 p.m. CT (NBC Sports Network, Live Chat on MLSsoccer.com).

With just a point separating Houston and New York in the standings, the teams enter the first of a home-and-home series that could go a long way in shaping the East playoff setup.

It’s been a few years since the Houston Dynamo were in a position to make a run at Major League Soccer’s Supporters Shield, an award handed out to the team that finishes with the most regular season points in the league. Although the team has won two MLS Cup titles and a third conference title since 2006, the Supporters’ Shield is one trophy that has eluded the men in orange.

The Dynamo have finalized a deal to bring former club and country standout Ricardo Clark back to Houston.

After agreeing to the terms of a deal with Clark last Friday, the Dynamo received the final paperwork and an international transfer certificate on Thursday to bring the World Cup veteran back from German Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt through the end of the 2014 season.

You've asked for it and now you've got it. As a part of Friday’s pre-game ceremony, El Capitan will be fired for the first time at BBVA Compass Stadium. El Capitan is a replica Civil War-ear mountain howitzer cannon and is awarded to the winner of the Dynamo vs. FC Dallas season series. The Dynamo retained El Capitan with a 2-1 win over their in-state rivals on June 16.

The Houston Dynamo defense enjoyed a near-perfect July. And in the middle of it all was defender Bobby Boswell.

In six matches last month, Houston conceded just one goal, a penalty kick by Kei Kamara in a 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City on July 18, and most impressively, just 26 percent of the 58 shots they faced tested goalkeeper Tally Hall. It is a defensive effort that screams organization and cohesion, and the voice in the middle making it happen belongs to Boswell.

With each passing week as the close of the MLS regular season draws nearer, every game becomes more important. The Dynamo take on the New York Red Bulls on Friday (7 p.m. CT, NBC Sports Network) in a battle between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference.

Houston is perhaps the hottest team in MLS at the moment, riding a four-game winning streak and a seven-game unbeaten run. New York, with the recent signing of former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill, has been hailed by some as the most talented roster on paper the league has ever seen.

The Houston Dynamo have waived defender Oscar Recio, the team announced today.

The 23-year-old Recio was acquired on loan in April from Mexican club Monterrey. Recio did not feature in any league matches, but started and played full time in all six of Houston’s Reserve League matches in 2012. Recio also started and played 90 minutes in the Dynamo’s 1-0 loss to the San Antonio Scorpions in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
