Kuroda leads Yankees to series split in Texas

Thanks to seven scoreless innings from Hiroki Kuroda in which the Rangers only managed six hits, the Yankees were able to sneak past the Rangers today, 2-0, to earn a split in the four game series. In those seven innings, Kuroda walked one and struck out three as he took the win, his tenth of the season. 

As always, the Yankees offense struggled today, but were able to win due to their pitching. In the top of the sixth inning, with a man on third and one out, Brent Lillibridge gave the Bombers the lead with an RBI Double to left field. After that, they'd score again in the eighth on an Eduardo Nunez groundout and that'd be it for the day. With the win, the Yankees are now 54-48 on the year, 3 games behind the Orioles for the second and final wild card spot.
