Tonight can't be as bad as last night, right? Right?? It's up to Ivan Nova and the all-or-nothing Yankee bats to make sure it won't be.
They face off against the scrappy Royals, who send reliever-turned-starter Sean O'Sullivan to the mound. O'Sullivan has gone 1-1 with a 2.16 ERA as a starter. Absolutely beautiful night for baseball here in New York.
Thankfully Cano is well enough to start after being plunked in the head last night, Jeter will DH while Nunez slots in at SS and Cervelli squats behind the plate so Russell the Muscle can prepare to start all three games against the Sox this weekend.
