Last night, Trent Grisham delivered a go-ahead three run blast in the sixth inning to lift New York to a 6-4 home victory versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

Thirty-one year old southpaw Carlos Rodon (8-2 3.08 ERA) will head to the hill for the Yankees in this contest. New York has won Rodon’s last five starts and he has allowed eight runs over his last 30 innings. 

The Kansas City Royals have won 24 of their first 35 home games and trail AL Central Division leading Cleveland by four games.

Melendez homered in a losing effort for the Royals, who fell to 39-27 overall.
