Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals 5/26

For the second time this week the New York Yankees and the Kansas City Royals will face off against each other inside Yankee Stadium. The Yankees have already lost one series against the Royals this week and the team will look to prevent that again this week. Tonight the Yankees will send Adam Warren to the mound to face off against Danny Duffy for the Royals. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11 and YES Network.

  • Warren has had a ton of success as a relief pitcher in his career against the Kansas City Royals but has never seen them as starting pitcher. Warren owns a 1.35 ERA against the Royals in three relief appearances in his career and will look to make his case to stay in the rotation when Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova return from the disabled list. 

  • Duffy has faced the Yankees five times in his career already including just a couple weeks back and owns a 8.05 ERA with 23 hits allowed and 17 runs in 19 innings in his career. The Yankees of this year did not hit well against Duffy this season though as New York struggled against the left handed this month.

The Yankees play a getaway game tomorrow afternoon in the Bronx before setting out west for an extended west coast road trip. New York has been losing a whole lot more than they have been winning lately and need something to build on going forward. The defense will have to be better, the pitching will have to be better and the offense will have to be better and that starts tonight inside Yankee Stadium. Let's go Yankees! Time to get it together.
