Pineda is 3-1 with a 2.63 ERA over his last six outings.

The Yankees will send Michael Pineda (3-2, 3.27) to the mound on Wednesday to face off against the Royals' red-hot lefty, Jason Vargas (5-1, 1.01).

Gary Sanchez didn't need a home run Tuesday night to validate the faith in his swing, but "that definitely felt good, " the Yankees' slugging catcher said through his interpreter.

"He's a big-time bat for us and he can do damage every time he's up there".

Every starter had at least one hit, with Starlin Castro's three hits leading the way, which gave the second baseman a.351/.387/.545 slash line so far. Gregorius' single to right plated Castro for a 2-0 lead in front of Hicks' three-run homer that tucked inside the left-field foul pole for a 5-0 cushion.

"It's been fun to watch", said Joe Girardi, who endured plenty of frustrating nights from the dugout watching his offense flail much of the last three seasons. "They've challenged him a little bit".

The Yankees are 5-0 in their last five road games versus a left-handed starter, and 10-2 in their last 12 games versus a left-handed starter. Hammel has a 1.69 ERA in the first two innings of his eight starts, allowing three runs over 16 innings. NY is also 7-2 in their last nine during game three of a series, and 22-8 in their last 30 games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

"We're just picking each other up", said Hicks, now slashing.326/.464/.616. Sometimes that happens when you start moving guys back and guys have got to figure out what their new role is and how they're going to be used and you integrate as well.

Castro scored a pair of runs, drove in another and lifted his average to.351.

The last time the Yankees took the field, nearly everything went wrong in their 11-6 loss to the Astros. "I knew when he hit it that it would have to be blown pretty good to get foul". "We didn't chase his pitches and made him throw the ball over the plate".

"I get a chance to talk to him tomorrow pregame and talk about the team, so that will be kind of unusual", Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said.

The Yankees, however, answered that with four runs in the fifth off Peter Moylan.

The Royals (16-22) were coming an exciting three-game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles, a series where the Royals won each game by one run. Pineda struck out five and walked two, giving him 55 strikeouts compared to eight walks this season.

Salvador Perez hit a two-run home run and Whit Merrifield also went deep for Kansas City, which scored three times in the ninth to make the final score more respectable.
