After experiencing turbulence in their last set of games, the Yankees were able to win their first face-off against the Royals with a home run from Judge this Friday. It’s the New York Yankees versus the Kansas City Royals this Sunday, July 31st, 2022 at the Yankee Stadium in NY. 

 

Aaron Judge yet again saves the troubled Yankees with his walk-off 1-0 win over the Royals. The Yankees struggle with their offensive play, and they visibly haven't been their best recently. In Friday’s game, they struggled with their runners and consequently, their scorers. Fortunately, they just needed one momentous swing from Aaron Judge to salvage the game and the team. Jordan Montgomery is expected to pitch for Sunday's game, and so far we don’t know what to expect yet due to their recent performances. Montgomery has a decent ERA of 3.50, a WHIP of 1.08, and 91 strikeouts. 

 

The Royals, on the other hand, have been showing linear improvement as of late. Though they lost to the Yankees last Friday, there’s no denying how they kept the final score to 1-0. Against one of the more intimidating teams in the league, that was a pretty good job for their defense. Besides getting better at defense, the Kansas representatives’ offense has been amped up this July. Fairly recently, they opened their series against the Angels with a 7-0 win and won twice in a 3-game series against the Rays. No pitcher has been named for the upcoming game yet, but with the difficulty Brady Singer imposed on the Yankees in the first game, he’d be a good choice along with Brad Keller who has the best ERA in the Royals. 

 

Ultimately, this prediction would’ve been an easier feat if not for the Yankees’ inconsistencies; however, it shows how the Royals can pack up a pleasant surprise— at least on their part. With all things considered, the Yankees have earned our trust. They might have been fumbling recently, but we’re expecting a surge of a sense of urgency as the LA Dodgers have replaced them at the top spot. Not to mention, their neck-and-neck win against the Royals can serve as a good jump-off point into getting back into their rhythm. Still, we don’t see Kansas giving away this game that easily all the same. The Yankees will need to put in the extra effort to earn this win from the dedicated Royals, but best believe they’ll still get it. 

 

2:05 AM (PST), Sunday, 31 July 2022. Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY.
