The Kansas City Royals will look to continue trying to find the form they found early in the year here against the Yankees, as they take on the Bronx Bombers in New York City at Yankee Stadium this Tuesday.
Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals have been on a huge down turn in the last month or so, and they will now be hoping a series win against the Boston Red Sox will give them the momentum necessary to take on a top team like the New York Yankees.
The Royals batting lineup is the main thing keeping them anywhere close to the .500 mark, as they have a respectable batting lineup hitting .244 as a unit which has them in 11th place in the big leagues.
The issue no doubt has been the pitching, as they rank towards the bottom in most of the important categories and the fact they do not have a pitcher listed for this one is a bit worrying as whoever they send out there will have a mighty tough task against this Yankees batting lineup.
New York Yankees
The Yankees on the other hand are flying high after winning 5 of their last 6 games and with Gerrit Cole heading to the hill for this matchup they should be quite confident they can pick up the win and move one step closer to the Red Sox atop the AL East.
At the start of the year most fans expected this Yankees batting lineup to be one of the most explosive, and with good reason, as they have sluggers like Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton and they have not necessarily been bad, as Judge leads the team in homers and Stanton leads the team in RBI.
The main issue has been depth, as guys like Sanchez, Torres, Frazier and Odor continue to struggle and it is hard to see this Yankees team going too far if the top of the order is the only part which can hit effectively.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
Gerrit Cole is coming off of an excellent outing against the Toronto Blue Jays where he made it to the 8th inning and I would not be surprised if we get a similar performance from the Yankee’s ace here on Tuesday, as he should have no problem rolling through this Royals batting lineup.
This Yankees batting attack is a bit of a concern when taking the runline, but I just see Cole setting this game up so well that I see the Yankees covering the run and a half in a lower scoring type of game.
