Streaking Yankees visit slumping Royals

The New York Yankees will be looking to continue their hot pace, while the Kansas City Royals will be looking to win a series for the first time since April 12-14 as the two clubs start a three-game series in Kansas City on Friday night.

The Yankees have won five straight and nine out of 10, following their 6-5 victory at Baltimore on Thursday. Aaron Hicks walked with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth to push across the winning run. The rally came after the Yankees gave up a 5-1 lead entering the bottom of the eighth, as Tommy Kahnle gave up a three-run homer to Renato Nunez to tie the score.

The Yankees are now 15-5 in the month of May. At 32-17, they are one game behind Minnesota for the best record in baseball. They've done this with an All-Star team on the injured list.
