Kuroda Brilliant As Yankees Coast

On a day where Andy Pettitte was sent to the disabled list, Hiroki Kuroda gave the Yankees exactly what they needed: a solid, consistent outing.

Kuroda threw eight masterful innings of shutout, two hit baseball to secure his fifth win of the season, 5-0. Kuroda outlasted Blue Jays veteran Mark Buehrle, who surrendered five earned over six innings to take the loss. Buehrle had limited the Yankees to just two runs over the first six, an RBI ground out by Cano and a Jayson Nix sac fly, before Yankee bats erupted in the bottom of the seventh.

In that seventh inning Austin Romine drove in David Adams with a double to left that signaled the end of Buehrle’s night and advanced Ichiro to third. Brett Gardner singled Ichiro in off of reliever Aaron Loup, and Nix was able to sacrifice Romine home before the inning ended. Buehrle was responsible for all of the scoring base runners.

Preston Claiborne delivered a stellar ninth inning, surrendering no runs on two hits, to secure the Yankee victory. Claiborne has yet to give up a run this season.
