Kuroda gets knocked around

After putting up the Yankees’ strongest pitching performance of the season thus far in their home opener last Friday, Hiroki Kuroda simply didn’t have it on Wednesday. The right-hander was hit hard from the get-go, allowing six runs and 10 hits over 4.1 innings pitched in a 6-5 loss to the Minnesota Twins. Justin Morneau homered twice off of Kuroda. The Yankees scored three runs in the first, but the offense stalled after that. Robinson Cano hit a solo home run in the third, and Derek Jeter added his fourth of the year in the ninth, but the Yankees would fall one-run short.
