The Yankees were on a roll before their 2-0 shutout loss to the Seattle Mariners. New York had won five games in a row before that loss to Seattle, scoring double-digit runs throughout that streak.
Kansas City have won three of their last five games, including two surprising victories against the AL Central leaders White Sox. In the Royals’ last clash – a 6-5 win over the Cardinals on August 8 – they received a single clutch RBI from Nicky Lopez early in the ninth inning.
The Royals are much better at home than on the road, posting a 28-25 record at Kauffman Stadium on Monday night. Despite their success at home, the audience faded from the Royals against the Yankees.
Our latest MLB PRO report shows there are several signals pointing to pundits trusting Kansas City as the underdog.
