Kuroda dominates for his fifth career complete game shutout. Baltimore Orioles 0 — New York Yankees 3   Hiroki Kuroda pitched an amazing game in tonight’s 3-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles.   The Yankees turned to Hiroki Kuroda in the rubber game with the Baltimore Orioles and the choice could not have been better. In a clear dominant fashion, Kuroda twirled a complete game shutout to give the Yankees tonight’s win. Kuroda didn’t allow a runner to reach second base until the ninth inning. He produced 18 ground outs and induced two double plays. Of the five hits, three of them were on the ground, just getting through the infield. On 113 pitches, Kuroda allowed no runs with five hits and five strikeouts. Orioles starter, Wei-Yin Chen, began the game matching zeroes with Kuroda but the fifth inning would be his undoing. The Yankees started the inning with a pair of singles. A fly out to right field would move the runner from second base to third and a sacrifice fly by Jayson Nix would bring in the first run of the game. Then, Brett Gardner would flex some muscle and bounce one off of the right field foul pole for a two-run home run. This was Gardner’s second home run of the season. With Kuroda absolutely dominant in tonight’s game, three runs may have looked insurmountable. Brennan Boesch started in right field, in place of the struggling Ichiro Suzuki (currently hitting .176), and got two hits in three at-bats tonight against a left-handed pitcher.   Win – Hiroki Kuroda (2-1) Loss – Wei-Yin Chen (0-2)   Notables Orioles *J.J. Hardy – 1 for 3 *Matt Wieters – 1 for 3 Yankees *Brett Gardner – 1 for 4, R, 2-Run Home Run (2) in the 5th, 2 RBI (6) *Brennan Boesch – 2 for 3, R   Current Yankees Record: 6-5
