Even though the series with the Rays ended up being abbreviated, the Yankees still were able to split and maintain their huge Wild Card lead. Plus, they are now just a .5 game behind the Red Sox in the division. They begin their 7 game Midwest road trip in Kansas City to take on the Royals (50-71). KC took 2 of 3 from the Bombers in May in the Bronx. Now, it is time for the Yankees to return the favor and hopefully get some help from Tampa in Fenway. The matchups are in New York’s favor. Yet again, Burnett is pitching tonight.
