The Royals are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 1-4 in Duffys last 5 starts. The Yankees are 3-10 in their last 13 Tuesday games and 5-2 in Warrens last 7 starts. The Royals are 15-42 in the last 57 meetings in New York and 36-78 in the last 114 meetings overall.
Maybe Monday's win is good enough to break the Yankees out of their funk. I'll take a chance with the home team here.
