Kuroda roughed up early in blowout loss to Angels

Hiroki Kuroda gave up 6 earned runs in 4.2 innings and recently called up prospect Bruce Billings surrendered another 4 in his major league debut tonight as the Yankees were blown by the Angels, 13-1. From his first pitch in this contest, Kuroda really didn't look like himself, surrendering a total of 10 hits and 2 home runs before eventually being taken out out of mercy in the top of the fifth. 

Anyway, as you can see by that -12 run final score, the Yanks offense was ice cold this evening against Angels starter C.J. Wilson, scoring just once in the sixth when Alfonso Soriano, for the second time in three days, collected the team's only RBI with a line-drive Sac Fly. Besides that play, the supposed Bronx Bombers struggled to even reach base here, putting together just 6 hits while walking 5 times.

Still, I guess you could say Jeter played okay in this loss, going 1-for-2 with a walk. Nothing amazing, but, you know, I guess we might as well take it. I mean, what else is there to do, right?
