It was an old fashion pitcher’s duel on Monday night but it was Hiroki Kuroda and the Yankees (13-9) who came out on top beating the Orioles (14-9) 2-1. Kuroda put his strongest outing together as a Yankee going seven strong innings only allowing one run on four hits. Kuroda threw an efficient 87 pitches in his seven innings of work.

Baltimore starter Jason Hammel was also solid in his start.  In six innings of work Hammel allowed two runs on five hits. The only Yankee runs came in the second inning, Mark Teixeira led off with a single and Eric Chavez followed with a two run homer, his third of the year.  

David Robertson came on to pitch a scoreless eighth inning, striking out the side. In 11 innings of work this season Robertson has yet to give up a run. Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth inning, and earned his fifth save of the season.

The Yankees will play the Orioles again Tuesday night. The Yankees will start Phil Hughes (1-3 7.88) while Brian Matusz (0-3 5.66) gets the nod for the O’s. Pregame begins at 6:30, first pitch at 7:05 right here on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio.
