The New York Yankees have been slow out of the gates to start the season, but baseball is a long season. 162 games allow for some ups and downs. The Yanks were 6-9 heading into a 2-game set with Boston.
What a performance, James Paxton.
To say it was much-needed is an understatement. This series gave Yankee fans something to cheer about and hopefully more to look forward to.
Paxton delivered in game 1 with a 12K shutout over 8 innings. Gardner put the Yanks up 5-3 after a grand slam with 1 out in the 7th to steal game 2, his 100th career home run!
That is one SLAMMIN' way for Brett Gardner to plant his 100th career homer, and it's now 5-3 Yankees!#YANKSonYES live stream: https://t.co/I5D6hC7r73 pic.twitter.com/Fq5KYfs3UY

This weekend brings the Kansas City Royals to the Bronx, and as a result, the Yankees must sweep them. The Bombers have the pitching edge in every matchup, and this should be the perfect series for the Yankee bats to come alive.
Last season the Yankees were 9-9 to start off before they ripped off 17 of 18 to really get their season going.
Royals are the perfect team for the Yankees to capitalize on this weekend.
