The Royals finally got back in the win column and will now look to earn a series split here on Thursday night.
The Royals got out early and never looked back on Wednesday, en route to a 7-3 victory.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals won 12 of 18 games and it looked like the defending champs would be on their way once again.
However, the script absolutely flipped on them and they put together losing streak after losing streak, and fell to 3rd in the AL Central. They lost the first two to New York, but a Lorenzo Cain 2 out 2 run single put the Royals up by 3 and they were able to hand the ball over to their lockdown bullpen to do the rest.
Trying to earn that series split, the Royals will send out Ian Kennedy. The RH, was a former first round pick of the Yankees, so he will certainly have a chip on his shoulder here. Kennedy settled in during his last start and pitched 7.0 scoreless innings in a win over Cleveland.
The Yankees rough start to the season will certainly put a lot of pressure on them going forward.
New York sits 5 games under the .500 mark and has certainly dug themselves a hole in the AL East. Winning series’ like this at home, especially after winning the first two games, is almost a must if this team hopes to get back into contention.
The Yankees will look for back to back series wins for the first time all season.
In hopes of doing that, the Yankees will send out Nathan Eovaldi. The RH is 2-2 on the season, but sits with an ERA at 4.78. He comes in off his best performance of the season where he pitched 8 innings against the Red Sox.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. NY Yankees MLB Prediction:
Both teams really somewhat need this one.
Kansas City has built too many losing skids while the Yankees slow start has really buried them in the standings for the time being.
