Live Game Updates: Royals at Yankees - 5/12

7:25 p.m., End 1st: Castro cracks a solo shot off Ian Kennedy in the first. Yankees up 1-0 in the early-going.

7:43 p.m., End 2nd: The streak is over. Headley rips his first extra-base hit of the year, a two-run shot to left, and the Yankees now lead the Royals 3-0.

8:43 p.m., Mid 5th: After another two-run blast by Didi made it 5-2, Nathan Eovaldi came about as close as you can get to blowing the lead in the fifth. After the Royals chipped away with an Alex Gordon RBI single, Salvador Perez drove one deep to right -- and into Carlos Beltran's glove about an inch in front of the wall. A home run would've given the Royals a 6-5 edge. Not exactly a flashy way to escape trouble, but I suppose it works.

8:53 p.m., Mid 6th: Kirby Yates tosses a 1-2-3 sixth. Looks like the Yankees' Big 3 is coming up. 

9:13 p.m., Mid 7th: Another clean inning by the Yankees' bullpen. Betances is perfect in the seventh as the Yanks maintain their 5-3 lead.

9:33 p.m., End 7th: Yankees add two in the seventh on a single by Castro and a bases-loaded walk by McCann. They now lead 7-3 heading into the eighth.
