Yankees looking to get to .500 as Royals hit town

New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone described his team's performance against the Boston Red Sox as two really strong games.

After sweeping their biggest rival, the Yankees get a chance at their second three-game winning streak of the season Thursday night when they host the Kansas City Royals in the opener of a four-game series.

The Yankees will be attempting to get to the .500 mark at 9-9 after getting an 8-0 win on Tuesday and following it up with a 5-3 win Wednesday. The Yankees have spent two days over .500 this season, after winning their season opener on March 28, and following a 15-3 romp at Baltimore on April 7.
