New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals: Luis Cessa vs. Ian Kennedy

Go Yankees, Go Cessa

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight the Yankees will wrap up this series with the Royals and have the chance to earn a series win after pulling off the extra-innings victory last night. Luis Cessa will take the mound opposite of Ian Kennedy. This will only be Cessa's third start, but he has had two solid outings. Most recently, he held the Orioles to just three runs on five hits. Kennedy isn't having the best season of his career, but he has pitched very well lately and hasn't surrendered more than two runs in a game since the end of July. The game starts at 8:15 EST and you can follow along on YES.
