The Royals begin their final series of the year, hosting the New York Yankees. The Royals need a sweep to avoid tying or breaking the club record for losses in a season. The Yankees need a sweep to avoid having their most losses in a season since 1992.

Jordan Lyles takes the mound for the Royals tonight. He is still tied with Darrell May’s 2004 record of 38 home runs allowed for most in a single season in club history. Could this be your last chance to see Matt Duffy in a Royals uniform?

The Yankees start Carlos Rodón who has been hurt and ineffective in the first year of a six-year, $162 million deal.

Game time is 7:10 CT on Bally Sports Kansas City.
