Yankees (14-13) At Royals (9-17): Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

At this point in time, the New York Yankees would like to leave Kansas City as fast as possible. However, there is one more game to be played and a four-game series to possibly split Sunday, when Phil Hughes (1-4, 7.48 ERA) takes the mound against Luke Hochevar (2-2, 7.36 ERA) at Kauffman Stadium (2:10 p.m. ET on YES Network).

So far, a usually routine trip to the Midwest has turned into a nightmare for the Yankees (14-13), who have lost four games and their long-time closer, Mariano Rivera, in a five-day span. On Sunday, their hopes hinge on Hughes, who has really struggled for consistency and is pitching for a spot in the five-man rotation, and sputtering offense that has averaged less than two runs per game in the past four losses.

Meanwhile, the Royals (9-17) looked good in the Game 1 and 3 victories and are now trying to take the finale for a series win.

Location: Kauffman Stadium

Game Time: 2:10 p.m. ET

TV Channel: YES Network
