The New York Yankees lost the rubber game of the series to the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday, as Yankees Starter Hiroki Kuroda was forced to leave the game early. The loss moves the Yankees to (28-18) on the season, and they still hold a lead in the AL East.
Kuroda got the start for the Yankees, and was their best pitcher thus far this season, but on Wednesday he was forced to leave the game early with a calf injury. Kuroda was hit hard before he had to leave the game in the third inning, as he gave up two homeruns to Nick Markakis and Chris Davis in the first inning. Kuroda’s final line was two innings pitched, while allowing five runs on eight hits.
