The Yankees were on quite a roll before their 2-0 shutout loss against the Seattle Mariners. New York had won five games in a row before that Seattle loss, scoring double-digit runs twice throughout that stretch.
Kansas City has won three of their last five games, including two surprising wins over the AL Central-leading White Sox. In the Royals’ last matchup—a 6-5 win over the Cardinals on August 8—they received a clutch RBI single from Nicky Lopez in the top of the ninth inning.
The Royals are much better at home than on the road, posting a 28-25 record at Kauffman Stadium entering Monday night. Despite their success at home, the public is fading the Royals against the Yankees.
