Hiroki Kuroda (Photo credit: Keith Allison) In a season where the New York Yankees have been plagued by injuries and sub par performances, one player has stood out among the rest. And that would be starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, who dazzled once again last night up in the Bronx. Kuroda lead his Yankees to a 2-1 win over the Angels, throwing eight innings, giving up just three hits, zero runs, a walk and seven strikeouts. It was the Bombers third win in their last four games. The Yankees have come to rely on Kuroda unfaltering performances every five days. Literally, the only element of consistency the Yankees have had this season is when Kuroda is on the bump. Kuroda’s 11-7, and the team’s 14-10 record over his 23 total starts is not truthful. That is because in six of his starts, the game resulted in a no-decision thanks to the Yankees anemic offense. As in all six, Kuroda threw a minimum of 6.2 innings, giving up just five earned runs and striking out 35 batters total. (more…) ©...

  • Thank Goodness for Hiroki this season, or else we might be 15 or 16 games out right now. If CC can pull his head out of his butt and they get Hughes out of the starting rotation we still have a chance. Phil is NOT A STARTER!!!! Long relief, maybe but he obviously should not be starting. Also need Pettite to return to form...unless we are watching the end of a great career unravel right before our eyes. I would hate to see Andy go out this way, but he has not pitched well at all since the All Star Break.
