Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals 5/23

The New York Yankees didn’t have a great weekend inside Tropicana Field but if the last series between these two teams is any indicator then New York may have found the medicine and the remedy for that tough weekend. New York is welcoming Kansas City home to the Bronx tonight in the second of a four-game set inside Yankee Stadium with a rematch of one of the games last week in Kansas City. A southpaw showdown goes down tonight as the Yankees send Jordan Montgomery to the mound to square off with Dany Duffy for the Royals.

Montgomery took the loss in his last start against these same Kansas City Royals after giving up five runs in five innings of work inside Kauffman Stadium. Mike Moustakas hit a three-run home run off the Yankees rookie landing him in the “L” column for his second straight start. You have to wonder just how short the leash is for Montgomery with Chance Adams’ recent promotion to Triple-A.

Duffy won his last start against the New York Yankees tossing seven shutout innings while giving up just three hits at home. This time Duffy is on the road but regardless he will look to replicate his 10 strikeout and two walk performance from last week.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV. You can also follow along on the radio and in your cars by tuning into John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman’s broadcast on WFAN. Enjoy the game everyone and as always, Go Yankees!!
