The New York Yankee and Kansas City Royals meet for game 2 of a 3 game series this Saturday night. The Yankees took the first game last night 12-2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10pm eastern time at Kauffman stadium.
Yankees Ace Gerrit Cole starts for the Yankees. After a few back and forth starts to start the year he finally put it all together in his most recent outing. He went 6.2 IP scoreless innings against the Guardians and racked up 9 strikeouts. In 1 start vs KC last year he went 7IP and allowed just 2 ER.
25-year-old Carlos Hernandez starts for the Royals. He’s been underwhelming thus far, he owns a 6.43 era through 3 starts with a WHIP of 1.79. His latest start was his best, 5.1 IP of 3 run ball vs the Mariners. He made 1 relief appearance and 1 start against the Yankees last year. Combining for 8.2IP allowing just 3 ER.
The Yankees bats are on FIRE. They’ve been tearing the laces off the ball and it’s a big reason they’re 9-1 their L10 and on a 7 game win streak. Over the last 7 days the Yanks own a slash line of .312/.367/.615 while the Royals are .208/.324.290. With Cole back to form, Hernandez struggling and the New York offense on fire this is an easy one.
