Royals-Yankees Preview

(AP) -- The Kansas City Royals own the best record in baseball, while the New York Yankees have spiraled back to .500.

The Yankees will try to snap out of their worst stretch in 20 years as they open this three-game home series with the Royals on Monday.

New York (22-22) has dropped 10 of 11 for the first time since May 23-June 3, 1995, and is hitting .214 with a 6.84 ERA during a six-game skid. That started with a 6-0 defeat at Kansas City (28-15) on May 17 after splitting the first two games of the series.
