The New York Yankees and Kansas City Royals face off on Friday in an American League showdown at Kaufmann Stadium. 

The Yankees come into this game with a 13-6 record overall and they have won six games in a row. The big knock at the beginning of the season was with the offense but they have turned it around now. On Thursday the offense scored 10 runs, and that was enough to secure the 5-run victory. Anthony Rizzo has been the top player for the Yankees hitting eight home runs and driving in 19 RBIs. 

The Royals have been inconsistent at best to start the season, but they are playing well coming into this game having won two of the last three games. In the last two wins, the Royals only gave up two runs total, and it appears that when this team finds success, they are going to need the pitching to be good. Andrew Benintendi has been the top player for the Royals hitting one home run and driving in 10 RBIs.

Getting the start for the Yankees is Nestor Cortes and he sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 1.15. In his last start against the Cleveland Guardians, he went 6.1 innings giving up one hit and two runs. 

On the mound for the Royals is Kris Bubic who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 14.14. In the last game against the Mariners he went two innings giving up seven hits and five runs. 

The Yankees are 9-3 in their last 12 games played on Friday. The Royals are 1-5 in their last six games. The Yankees are 99-44 in their last 143 meetings against the Royals. The over is 8-1-2 in the last 11 meetings between the two teams. 

When the Royals have found success this season it’s been the pitching, and I don’t see them getting good pitching in this game. In Bubic’s last start he went two innings giving up seven hits and five runs. Look for the Yankees to find success with their bats again, and they will cruise to an easy victory. Back the Yankees on the run line.
