Yankees game 82: No offense for great Kuroda

Tampa Bay Rays 2 — New York Yankees 1 An unproductive offense does not support the outstanding pitching effort. After five relievers were needed in yesterday’s extra inning game, Hiroki Kuroda was going to be asked for as many innings as possible.

Yankees don't shift for Hiroki Kuroda

The Yankees are utilizing ***** more than ever in an effort to improve their defense. While results have been mixed so far (the Yankees have actually allowed three more net runs than would have been scored in traditional positioning), the Yankees are banking on the practice working in the long run.

Hiroki Kuroda returns to form

After his last couple of outings, Yankees fans had to be relieved with how Hiroki Kuroda pitched yesterday. Kuroda pitched well into the eighth inning and was denied a win due to a Mike Trout triple followed by a single by Albert Pujols (given up by Shawn Kelley). Hiroki's final line was impressive by any standard - 7 2/3 innings pitched, 5 hits, 3 runs (only one earned...

Will Yankees Pitcher Hiroki Kuroda Retire?

It’s not exactly recent news that Hiroki Kuroda is contemplating retirement. The New York Yankees pitcher said as much at the end of the season, and, unfortunately, he has yet to decide against it. We kind of thought that Kuroda’s mention of retirement was smoke and mirrors, but it looks like he may be serious. Yanks GM Brian Cashman recently said that he doesn’t know...

Is this the end for Hiroki Kuroda and the New York Yankees?

All season long, the New York Yankees have been waiting to race with all their horses. And just when it looked like the barn was finally healthy, their thoroughbred has gone lame. Hiroki Kuroda has faltered for the first time all season. Hiroki Kuroda, the team’s de facto ace since April, has stunningly fallen apart in his past two starts.
