Kansas City Royals
Kansas City scored first on Monday night, taking a 2-0 lead early but the Yankees used three homers to score three times between the third and seventh innings to win, 4-2.
Didi Gregorious hit the big one, a two-run job that put New York up 3-2 in the fourth. Chris Carter tacked on some insurance in the seventh.
Three of those dingers came against Jason Vargas. It’s another lefty tonight: Danny Duffy. He’s been awfully tough over his last three starts, like he can be.
Duffy started the season great, including a good WBC run and then struggled in two straight starts when he gave up half a dozen in each. Looks like he’s back on track at the moment.
New York Yankees
Michael Pineda did his usual thing last night, two runs in six-and-a-third innings. Now Jordan Montgomery gets the ball for game two.
Monty has been a bit off in his last two starts (11 innings, 9 earned). He walked three last week against the Royals and like it seems to happen so often with young pitchers, those walks came back to hurt him.
He gave up five runs but only four hits. I’m not at all worried about what’s gone on recently with the rook.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: the two lefties have a nice little duel, Yankees win late.
I like both of these starters but I like the home team, with a better bullpen to win it late. That said, the Yankees are a bit too pricey to play.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8.5 (even money)
If I’m playing the sides, I’ll take KC but this under is good enough value for a small play. I have it ‘capped at 8.0 with some juice on the under. We get even money at 8.5.
