Today is May 10 and the last time the Royals were in New York on this date was 1997 for a 5-2 loss. That Saturday afternoon, the Royals fielded a veteran lineup containing the likes of Jose Offerman, Jay Bell, Bip Roberts, Jeff King and Chili Davis.

It is also one of the few times in the last 15 years that the Royals had a winning record on that date. In 1997, they were 17-16 after that loss and wound up losing 94 games. It also occurred in 2000 (18-15 and 77-85 finish); 2003 (21-13; 83-79 finish); 2009 (18-14; 65-97 finish).

As for the present, the Royals take an 18-16 mark into their third series at the new stadium and will start Kyle Davies. Davies gave up Alex Rodriguez’s 500th home run on August 4, 2007 but also turned in outings such as June 6, 2008 when he allowed one run
