Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Kansas City Royals 5/18



Good morning everyone and, weather permitting, welcome back to New York Yankees baseball. The Yankees are fresh off their four-game mini vacation this week and have made the trip to Kansas City and Kauffman Stadium to begin a series with the Kansas City Royals. In the opener the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound to face off with Jakob Junis (who?) for the Royals. I am just grateful that the boys in pinstripes are back, no matter who they are playing, so let’s get to it here in Kansas City.

Sabathia will start tonight rather than take his scheduled turn on Wednesday in Washington after the game was rained out. Sabathia has posted a 2-0 record with a 1.65 ERA in five starts since coming off the disabled list in mid-April with the Yankees winning four of the five starts. #Stopper


Junis was not sharp in his last start against the Cleveland Indians where the Royals starter gave up six hits and four earned runs in 5.2 innings worth of work. This will be the first time Junis has seen the Yankees and vice versa.

The game will be played at 8:15 pm ET inside Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app or by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast on WFAN with the legendary duo of John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, no seriously… who is Jakob Junis? and go Yankees!
