Preview: New York Yankees @ Kansas City Royals 6/8

The New York Yankees and the Kansas City Royals will play in the third of a four game set this weekend at Kauffman Stadium this afternoon. The Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound to face off with Big Game James Shields for the Royals. The game will be played at 2:10 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Kuroda is coming off what was probably his best start of the season last time out against one of the best teams in the American League in the Oakland A's. Kuroda allowed one run and two hits in 6.2 IP in his second longest start of the season. Kuroda's command has returned as he has averaged only one walk in his last three starts.

Shields has given up 17 runs in three straight no decisions so it's time for him to come in and dominate the Yankees, isn't that how it always works? The good news for the Royals is they have won all three of those games. Shields had won six of his seven starts prior to this streak and saw his ERA jump from 2.67 to 3.68 while allowing the 17 runs, 15 of them earned.
