In Japan, where traditional ranking permeates even baseball, the ace of a team’s pitching staff typically wears the number 18. It is a custom confined to that country, although Hiroki Kuroda has certainly upheld its notion in baseball’s metropolis.

The Yankees hope to keep the momentum going on this road trip with Hiroki Kuroda (6-4, 2.59 ERA) facing off against Jeremy Bonderman (0-1, 13.50 ERA).

He is winless in his last three starts...

Kuroda left the game with an injury. Announcers on ESPN have speculated that Kuroda has an injury to his back but it is worth nothing that he was hit in the calf by a comebacker in the second.
Ah, what a comfort it is to know that, after a tough extra inning walk-off loss last night in Baltimore, the Yankees have their ace pitching in the rubber game tonight.But wait, you might be saying, CC Sabathia pitched in the first game of the series, right?Yes, but who said CC was the ace of the pitching staff?
