Prediction:

The prediction for this game is a win for the New York Yankees. Here’s why:

The Yankees have been on fire, winning their last four games and showcasing their offensive prowess. They have outscored the Royals 24-4 in the first three games of this series. Nestor Cortes, despite his average record, has been reliable and should be able to handle the Royals' lineup.

The Royals, on the other hand, have lost their last four games and have struggled to keep up with the Yankees' offense. Alec Marsh has been decent but faces a tough challenge against a Yankees lineup that is clicking on all cylinders.
