The Yankees (100-56) begin a three-game set with the Royals (64-92) tonight.
The Yanks took two of three from the Royals way back in April (doesn’t it seem like yesterday?), and now they will finish the season series in the Bronx.

|Mon., 7:05 p.m.||L.Hochevar (7-11, 5.98)||Chad Gaudin (5-10, 4.78)|

Just by looking at the lineup anyone could tell who little the Yankees care about this game. Robinson Cano is the only player in his playoff spot tonight. This should be a fun game to watch, if it ever gets played (rain).
Remaining opponents weighted winning percentage: 46 percent
Magic Number: 0!
