They will look to increase their division lead with a win on Wednesday. The team is averaging 4.93 runs per game and has impressive offensive stats, including a .255 batting average (fifth in the league), .334 on base percentage (second), and .436 slugging percentage (second). Juan Soto leads the team with a .318 batting average, while Aaron Judge leads with 24 home runs and 59 RBI. The Yankees' pitching has been strong, giving up only 2.88 runs per game, with opponents batting .209 against them (league-leading). Their 2.88 ERA and 1.12 WHIP also lead the league. Despite a strong performance from pitcher Poteet in his last start, the team lost to the Dodgers 2-1 and will need a similar effort from him to secure a win. With a power ranking of 3, the Yankees are ranked 7th in offense, 1st in defense, and boast a 48-21 record this season.

New York Yankees Riding High on Winning Streak, Favored to Maintain Offensive Prowess Against Kansas City Royals

The New York Yankees have been on a winning streak, securing victories in 10 out of their last 12 games and triumphing in six of their last seven road matches. They have exhibited strong offensive performances, scoring at least six runs in four of their most recent five road games. Based on their impressive track record hitting against left-handed pitchers and Lynch's recent struggles on the mound, it is likely that the Yankees will maintain their offensive prowess in the upcoming game.

Conversely, the Kansas City Royals have faltered in their last seven home games, losing four of them, although they have shown promise in their offensive capabilities, tallying 15 runs in the past three games. However, given Poteet's effective pitching for the Yankees, only conceding four runs in his three starts, and New York's formidable bullpen, the Royals may face challenges in scoring. It is advisable to bet on New York covering the money line in this game.
