The Kansas City Royals and the New York Yankees will both be gunning for a victory on Monday when they meet at Yankee Stadium.

The Royals will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Jason Vargas in this game. Vargas has a 5-2 record and a 2.03 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Yankees will be Michael Pineda. The right hander has a 3.42 ERA to go along with a 4-2 record this season.

Vargas matched the sum total of his season by allowing six runs in Wednesday’s 11-7 loss to fall to 0-6 with a 7.15 ERA in 10 career appearances (nine starts) against the Yankees. The 34-year-old permitted a three-run homer to Aaron Hicks as part of a five-run fourth, accounting for just the second time he’s been taken deep in 48 2/3 innings this campaign. Prior to Wednesday’s letdown, Vargas yielded a total of seven hits while recording back-to-back scoreless outings.

Pineda posted his third straight quality start in Wednesday’s victory over the Royals and benefited from his team’s power surge to overcome tying his season-high run total. The 28-year-old Dominican allowed two homers for the third time in his last five starts, with Mike Moustakas joining Perez in going deep on two occasions in their respective careers versus Pineda. The hurler traditionally has gotten the better of both Alex Gordon (.182) and Alcides Escobar (.174) en route to posting a 4-5 mark with a 3.95 ERA in nine career outings against Kansas City.

Oddsmakers currently have the Yankees listed as 169-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

Salvador Perez carried a nine-game hitting streak into last week’s home series against the Yankees, only to go 1-for-10 as the Kansas City Royals dropped two of three to New York at Kauffman Stadium. Perez’s one hit was a two-run homer off Michael Pineda, and the two will meet again on Monday as Kansas City opens a four-game set at Yankee Stadium.

Perez, who is batting .391 with two homers in his career against Pineda, got back in the swing of things by tying a franchise record with three homers in a series-ending doubleheader against Minnesota on Sunday. Kansas City split those encounters against the Twins and has dropped four of six since a season high-tying four-game win streak. While the Royals are tied with Oakland for the fewest road wins (six), the Yankees boast a 13-6 mark at home – with that loss total serving as the second-fewest in the league behind only Baltimore (four). Brett Gardner, who is batting a blistering .359 over his last 20 games, went deep for the eighth time in that stretch on Sunday as New York snapped a three-game skid by salvaging the finale of its series with Tampa Bay.

In their last action, New York was a 3-2 winner on the road against the Rays. Bettors on New York at 126 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Kansas City, they were a 8-4 loser as they battled the Twins on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Twins at -106 were rewarded, while the 12 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
