The New York Yankees seek a win over KC after a rare bullpen collapse on Tuesday.

The New York Yankees had a 3-2 lead, but a rare bad outing from Jonathan Loaisiga and coming up just short on the comeback saw them fall 6-5 to the Kanas City Royals. Gerrit Cole pitched seven strong innings, but it just wasn’t enough.

The first-place Red Sox defeated the Rays, so the Yankees remain in third place and 5.5 games back.
