The New York Yankees will travel to Kansas City on Tuesday for a weekday series as Kansas City kicks off a 10 game homestand.
After neither team scored through 6 innings, the Yankees and Royals went back and forth into extras with New York finally prevailing in the 11th inning 8-6 on Monday.
New York Yankees
The Yankees have won 6 of their 7 series since the All-Star break and continue to climb their way back into contention. New York is now 61-50, placing them at 3rd in the AL East and 6.5 games back from the Rays for the division lead. In the wild card race they are only 2 games back from the Athletics.
At the trade deadline the Yankees were very aggressive and brought in lefty sluggers Anthony Rizzo and Joey Gallo to try and help bolster the right handed dominant lineup.
Rizzo has already proven his worth as he has driven in a run in each of his first 6 games with the Yankees, a franchise record. New York is 5-1 since acquiring the first baseman from Chicago.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City enters Tuesday with a 48-62 record on the season, which places them at 4th place in the American League Central. They are 17 games back from the American League best Chicago White Sox for the division lead.
The Royals sit near the bottom of baseball in almost all of the offensive categories and their pitching hasn’t helped the cause either. Despite having the 10th best batting average Kansas City is 27th in scoring. Additionally, their team ERA is 28th at 5.06.
Salvador Perez is having another All-Star season and leads the team in nearly every major offensive category. The veteran catcher is hitting .272 with a .505 slugging percentage on 27 HR’s and 69 RBI’s.

New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Opposing teams are sitting at a .225 batting average and .671 OPS when squaring up with the Royals. The Yankees are a tough matchup for a Royals team that was already struggling to keep their heads above water offensively.
New York has been a different team since the trade deadline and continue to win games courtesy of their revamped offense.
Take the Yankees to win again.
