9/19 Game Preview vs. Toronto Blue Jays

Another day and another game between the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. Tonight these two teams will play in their second of the four game set they have this weekend. The Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound tonight to face off with the Blue Jays Mark Buehrle. The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Kuroda is 3-2 with a 3.33 ERA in eight starts since August 1st putting to rest any rumors of his third consecutive late season decline. Kuroda has held opposing batters to a .235 average during those two months of starts. The added late season strength can be attributed to Kuroda backing off his between starts work and side sessions.

Buehrle continues to look to get the monkey named the New York Yankees off his back tonight in the Bronx. Buehrle is coming off a no decision start last time out where he pitched six innings and gave up four earned runs on nine hits in an extra innings loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.

Go Yankees!!
