The Minnesota Twins got the best of the New York Yankees and Starter Hiroki Kuroda thanks to Justin Morneau’s two home runs.  The Twins beat the Yanks by the score of 6-5.

Kuroda had a great outing on April 13th against the Angels, pitching 8 shutout innings and giving up 5 hits. The same could not be said Wednesday as Kuroda would struggle early on giving up 4 runs in the first inning, he would only last 4 1/3 innings giving up a total of 6 runs and 10 hits including 2 home runs by Justin Morneau. Twins Pitcher Jason Marquis would also struggle in the first giving up 3 runs.  He would give up a total of 4 runs in 5 innings including a Home Run to Robinson Cano.

The Bullpens of both teams would do their jobs not allowing any runs. Minnesota’s Closer Matt Capps would then take over in the ninth. Alex Rodriguez would ground out,  Derek Jeter would make some noise with a home run, but Curtis Granderson would strike out and Mark Teixeira would fly out to end the game.

The four game series wraps up Thrusday as Phil Hughes will take the mound for the Yankees taking on Anthony Swarzak for the Twins. Catch all the action on 104.5 The team with the Pregame at 6:30, first pitch at 7:05.
