Hiroki Kuroda

This game is over, and it’s official. It’s a 3-0 Red Sox win after five and a half innings. According to the Yankees, everything counts. It’s just over, called because of ongoing rain. Not that there was any sign the Yankees could have come back. The Yankees offense has been unthinkably bad for a week now, scoring more than one run only twice in the past seven games. They’ve lost seven of their past eight, nine of their past 12, and are now tied with the Rays for third/fourth place in the American League East. Kuroda wasn’t awful tonight, but with this Yankees offense, his margin for error was remarkably thin. Kuroda allowed three runs through 5.1 innings, with two of those runs coming on solo homers by Jose Iglesias and David Ortiz. Three runs might as well have been 30 runs, and the Yankees never seriously challenged for control of the game. Ichiro Suzuki and Austin Romine had the Yankees only hits.
