Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Kansas City Royals 5/19



Good morning everyone and welcome to the official beginning of the weekend. No work for many today whatsoever, but the boys in their road gray uniforms will be back at it again with the second of a three-game weekend set with the Royals. In tonight’s battle of the aces the New York Yankees will send Luis Severino to the mound to face off with a potential trade candidate for the Bombers in July, Kansas City’s left-handed starter Danny Duffy. Let’s get to it here in Kansas City.

Severino has not been beaten in six straight starts and will look to make it seven tonight in Kansas City. In his last start the Yankees right-hander allowed just one run on five hits in six innings of work in a victory. Since April 16, Severino is 4-0 with a 1.54 ERA covering six starts while holding opponent’s batting average to just .171.


Duffy on the other hand was not so sharp in his last start against the Cleveland Indians where he allowed nine runs on eight hits in just 3.1 innings pitched. The Royals lost 11-2 in the contest with Duffy taking the loss.

The game will be played at 7:15 pm ET inside Kauffman Stadium and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB Network. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast on WFAN with the legendary duo of John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, watch Duffy audition for a rescue ticket out of Kauffman Stadium, and go Yankees!!
