Los Angeles Dodgers vs New York Yankees Game 1 Recap
Final Score: Dodgers 4 Yankees 6
For the first time since 1981 the Los Angeles Dodgers were in the Bronx after a rain out on Tuesday, the Yankees were able to beat the Dodgers in Game 1 of a day/night doubleheader 6-4. The win puts the Yankees at (39-31) on the season, and are 3.5 games behind the Red Sox for first place in the AL East.
The offense for the Yankees was able to give Hiroki Kuroda a nice lead early, as in the second inning off Hyun-Jin Ryu, Lyle Overbay got the Yankees on the board with a two-run double scoring Thomas Neil and Ichiro Suzuki. In the sixth inning Suzuki would get the Yankees third run off Ryu, with a solo-home run, which was Suzuki's third of the season. Ryu pitched pretty well against the Yankees, as he finished going six innings allowing three runs on five hits, and two walks, but picked up his third loss of the season
