It was unfortunate that Hiroki Kuroda picked tonight of all night’s to have his worst start in two years. He gave up seven runs on nine hits in six innings of work. He struck out three, served up four home runs and the Yankees’ five game winning streak came to a disastrous end.
The Yankees’ offense didn’t do much of anything either. They were held to two runs on four hits in seven strong innings by Chris Archer. At least it’s better than the last time they faced him when he held them scoreless.
It was an ugly night.
