Royals look to continue power surge vs. Yankees

NEW YORK -- Home runs and the Royals don't necessarily go together based on past seasons, but this season, Kansas City is putting pitches over the fence more frequently.

After tying a season high with four home runs, the Royals are up to 13 homers through the first half of a 10-game road trip. They look to add to that figure Wednesday night in the third game of a four-game series with the New York Yankees.

Kansas City (19-26) has 52 homers, which is 16 fewer than the Yankees. The Royals are on a pace to get 187, which would shatter the mark set by the 1987 team that was led by Danny Tartabull's 34.
