The Yankees dropped the series opener with the Royals in typically frustrating fashion, but they’re still here today with a chance to take another series, finding it within themselves to win another thriller. Today, they’ll send out Jameson Taillon, but Kansas City will counter with a pitcher who’s struggled even more than Taillon, as Brad Keller and his 6.34 ERA are set to toe the rubber. Keller should provide the Yankee lineup a nice opportunity to find a crooked number, and hopefully, a rubber match victory.
