Yankees' home runs back Sabathia in 7-1 rout of Royals

Kansas City Royals

CC Sabathia's eyes light up whenever he sees the outfield fountains at Kauffman Stadium.

Both blows came off righthander Jason Hammel, who came in 1-4 with a 5.97 ERA and pitched to those numbers.

Manager Joe Girardi went to his bullpen, although Sabathia had thrown only 85 pitches. I'll take the Royals for the victory in this one.

Sabathia has had dominating stretches in a career that includes six All-Star Games, a Cy Young Award and a World Series ring. But he entered Tuesday's game having surrendered 18 earned runs in his last three starts.

"It's a good lineup", Sabathia said. With Sabathia set to face Jason Hammel in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 9.5 runs. And Soler was thrown out at second trying to stretch his hit into a double. Sabathia struck out Salvador Perez and Bonifacio before walking Soler and surrendering an infield single to Alex Gordon. Tyler Clippard came in and fanned Whit Merrifield to escape the jam, then handled the eighth before Jonathan Holder allowed a run in the ninth. Clippard won the battle when he recorded a checked-swing strikeout.

The Royals wasted a couple of inning-ending defensive gems.

Mike Moustakas robbed Aaron Judge of extra bases with a phenomenal diving stab of No. 99's hard-hit grounder that was headed down the left-field line.

Champion in 2005 and 2006, Alonso hasn't added to his 32 victories since winning the Spanish GP in 2013. He had to abandon the Russian GP last round when his auto broke down on the formation lap.

Alcides Escobar twice lined out to third baseman Chase Headley, including a hot shot leading off the game.

Is CC Sabathia and the Yankees worth backing for bettors when the team visits the Royals at 8:15PM ET?

In the Country Club Plaza area, Jack Stack is a go-to place; their spicy barbecue sauce goes with everything they serve - and it's all great.

It was another dismal night for Hammel, who allowed seven runs over seven innings in his last start against Tampa Bay.

"I've got to do a better job of keeping the ball in the park", Hammel said. "They worked their way back into a count and I would just make a mistake".

Carter stroked a single to left to open the third.

Chris Carter led off the third inning with a single, Brett Gardner followed with a walk and Gary Sanchez blasted a 428-foot, three-run homer over the wall in straightaway center to give the Yankees a 3-0 lead. After a two-out Didi Gregorius single, Carter did the damage that time, hitting a two-run home run. Kansas City is also 5-0 in Vargas' last five starts with five days' rest, and 10-1 in Vargas' last 11 home starts. The Yankees' romp had started and was in good hands with Sabathia, pitching in his favorite ballpark.
