Final Score: New York 3, Baltimore 0
Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Hiroki Kuroda tossed his fifth career shutout and
Brett Gardner smacked a two-run homer as part of a three-run fifth
inning in the New York Yankees' 3-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles in the
rubber match of a three-game set.
Kuroda (2-1) fanned five, surrendered just five hits and didn't allow an
Oriole to advance past first until the ninth in his first shutout since August
14 of last year against the Texas Rangers.
"I thought his sinker was excellent," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He
kept his pitch count down, that's why I kept running him out there."
Brennan Boesch had two hits and scored a run for New York, which has won five
of its last six games.
Wei-Yin Chen (0-2) allowed six hits and a walk over six frames for the
Orioles, who had won eight of their last 12 meetings against the Yankees in
"With very few exceptions, he was just as good as Kuroda," O's manager Buck
Showalter said of Chen.
Chen had yielded just a pair of singles and a walk over his first four innings
before running into trouble in the fifth.
Back-to-back singles by Boesch and Francisco Cervelli began the frame. Lyle
Overbay's flyout to right allowed Boesch to tag and advance to third before he
scored on Jayson Nix's sacrifice fly to right. Gardner stepped up next and
belted a two-run shot high off the foul pole in right to make it 3-0.
In the ninth, Nick Markakis reached with one out following a fielding error by
Nix at shortstop. He advanced to second on Adam Jones' groundout to third, but
Chris Davis struck out for a third time to end the contest.
The Yankees were 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position and left five men on
base ... Robinson Cano, who was 11-for-19 with three homers and four doubles
over his last four games coming in, went 0-for-3.
