Hiroki Kuroda

Every five days, the Yankees still have a legitimate reason to believe they can beat just about anyone. Hiroki Kuroda is pitching like a legitimate Cy Young candidate, including seven shutout innings this afternoon in a 2-0 win against the Rangers. The Yankees salvaged a series split in Texas. They have won three games since the All-Star break, two of them started by Kuroda, who’s ERA is down to 2.51. The Yankees finally gave him some offensive support in the sixth when Austin Romine had his first of two doubles in the game. Romine later scored on a double by Brent Lillibridge, and a Robinson Cano double led to another run in the eighth. Dave Robertson and Mariano Rivera did their usual work in the eighth and ninth to close out the win and send the Yankees back to New York for a short three-game home stand.
