The first place Yankees begin a three game series tonight in Kansas City against the Royals. Kauffman Stadium hasn’t been too kind to the Yanks recently, as it’s the site of Mariano Rivera’s torn ACL just over a year ago, and Robinson Cano’s unpleasant experience during the Home Run Derby during the All-Star break last season. Phil Hughes takes to the mound to continue his good pitching; over his last four starts (28 IP), he has allowed six runs while striking out 30. Wade Davis will get the start for the Royals. Here are the lineups: New York Yankees (20-13) Brett Gardner CF Robinson Cano 2B Vernon Wells LF Travis Hafner DH Ichiro Suzuki  RF Jayson Nix SS Lyle Overbay 1B Chris Nelson 3B Chris Stewart C RHP Phil Hughes (1-2, 3.60 ERA) Kansas City Royals – managed by Ned Yost (18-13) Alcides Escobar SS Lorenzo Cain RF Alex Gordon LF Billy Butler DH Eric Hosmer 1B Salvador Perez C Mike Moustakas 3B Elliot Johnson 2B Jarrod Dyson CF RHP Wade Davis (2-2, 4.75 ERA) Game Time: 8:10 pm EST – Kauffman Stadium – Kansas City, MO TV: YES, MLB Network Radio: WCBS 880, WADO 1280 Weather: Clear,  64°
