Hiroki Kuroda has been one of the hardest luck pitchers in the league for the past couple of years with the Yankees. Tonight, Kuroda didn’t have his best stuff, but the Yankee offense was able to pick him up as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays at home for the 17th straight time, 6-4.
The Yankees responded in the second off Mark Buehrle. Brian McCann and Chase Headley singled, and Ichiro Suzuki walked to load the bases. Brian Roberts drove in a run with a single and Brett Gardner hit a sac fly to make it 3-2.
Bautista made it 4-2 with his 20th homer of the year in the fourth.
Back came the Yankee offense in the third. Carlos Beltran hit his 11th homer of the year to make it 4-3. McCann and Headley singled and Ichiro then hit his first homer in 294 at-bats.
Chris Capuano makes his Yankee debut tomorrow at 1:05 against Drew Hutchinson.
