Who's pitching for the Yankees:
Jordan Montgomery (2-3, 4.81 ERA) took the loss against Kansas City last Thursday surrendering five runs on four hits while striking out four and walking three. He is looking for a bounce-back at home having lost his last two starts. The rookie has yet to pitch through the seventh inning so far this season.
Who's pitching for the Royals:
Danny Duffy (3-3, 2.97 ERA) dominated the Yanks in his last start allowing three hits and no runs while striking out ten and walking two in seven innings. The Royals ace has pitched through the seventh in back-to-back starts and looks to keep that streak alive tonight.
