Pitching continues to carry the Yankees, this time finishing off a three-game series sweep – and building a five-game winning streak – with a 4-2 win against the Royals. Hiroki Kuroda delivered his second-longest start of the year, 7.2 innings that certainly help the Yankees heading into tomorrow’s doubleheader. Kuroda might have lasted even longer had he not run into trouble in the eighth, leading Dave Robertson to finish the inning instead of taking the day off. Mariano Rivera closed for his 15th save, four of which have come in the past five games. The Yankees once again scored just enough, getting back-to-back home runs from Robinson Cano and Vernon Wells in the third inning. Cano’s was a two-run homer and his 10th of the year. Wells added an RBI single in the fifth.
