Yankees-Royals preview

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- While the Kansas City Royals have won their seven previous series, they will need a victory Wednesday over the New York Yankees to make it eight straight.

The Yankees topped the Royals 5-4 in 10 innings Tuesday night as the two teams have split the first two games of the series. Not only did the game go an extra inning, there was a 59-minute rain delay after the fifth.

The Royals had Raul Mondesi and Jarrod Dyson, their two fastest runners, in scoring position with none out in the 10th but failed to score.
