(Sports Network) - While Alfonso Soriano and Alex Rodriguez

Postby jokergreen0220 on 30 Dec 2017, 04:20

(Sports Network) - While Alfonso Soriano and Alex Rodriguez continue to turn back the clock, New York Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda would just simply like to dial things back a few weeks. Custom Juventus Jerseys . Kuroda tries to rebound from two straight subpar efforts and secure a series victory for the Yankees on Wednesday night in the finale of a three-game set versus the Toronto Blue Jays. Kuroda has been roughed up over back-to-back losses to Boston and Tampa Bay after having gone 4-1 with a 0.94 earned run average over seven starts prior. He gave up just five earned runs over 48 innings in that span, but the Red Sox got to him for five runs -- three earned -- and a season-high 11 hits over 5 2/3 innings on Aug. 17. The right-hander hoped to rebound on Friday versus the Rays, but instead matched career highs by giving up seven runs and four homers in six innings of work. It was the first home runs Kuroda had allowed since June 30. "It was really strange, he just didnt have his stuff tonight," said Yankees manager Joe Girardi. The 38-year-old hurler is now 11-9 with a 2.71 ERA in 26 starts this year, three of those coming versus the Blue Jays. He is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA in those outings and 4-1 lifetime in six matchups against Toronto with a 3.03 ERA. Kuroda would love to see Alfonso Soriano stay red hot. The 37-year-old slugger is hitting .275 with 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 30 games since being reacquired by the Yankees and he went deep twice in last nights 7-1 win. Sorianos second homer was the 400th of his career. The first 98 of those came with New York to begin his career from 1999-2003 before he was dealt to the Texas Rangers for Alex Rodriguez. "Hes been great for us. Hes the reason we have been scoring a lot more runs," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said of Soriano. "We get another big night out of him tonight. Hes been great." Rodriguez also homered last night, his second in as many games. The 38-year- old has four in 20 games this season and 651 in his career, nine back of Willie Mays for fourth on baseballs all-time list. Andy Pettitte was also solid over seven scoreless innings, though New York got a scare when Robinson Cano was hit in the left hand by a pitch in the first inning by Torontos J.A. Happ. He was replaced in the bottom of the inning by Eduardo Nunez and x-rays after the game were negative and Cano is day-to-day. Nunezs status is also up in the air after he tweaked his right knee later in the game and had to come out. Still, New York has won seven of 10 and 12 of its past 17 to sit 4 1/2 games out of the leagues second wild card spot. Moises Sierra collected three hits for Toronto, while Happ was charged with five runs over 4 2/3 innings. "I wasnt sharp enough. Its tough when you get behind against a team like that," Happ said. Toronto has lost eight of its last 10 games and is 2-13 versus New York this season. On Wednesday, the Blue Jays turn to Todd Redmond, who is 1-2 with a 4.44 ERA in 11 games (8 starts) this season. The righty has not won since July 7, posting six straight no-decisions before a 12-4 loss at Houston on Friday. Redmond gave up season highs of eight runs -- seven earned -- and eight hits, also walking three and striking out six over 3 1/3 innings. Redmond, 28, will face the Yankees for the first time.

"I know I was just a kid, a 19-year-old kid," the Milwaukee Brewers third baseman said. Ramirez had three hits, including his 350th career home run, and drove in four runs to lead the Milwaukee Brewers over the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-6 on Tuesday night. Coincidentally, No. 350 came just a short walk from where he hit his first -- which also came against his current team. Playing for the Pirates on June 12, 1998, Ramirez took Milwaukees Scott Karl deep at Three Rivers Stadium. The 16-year veteran third baseman helped stake the Brewers to a 5-0 lead in the fifth inning, but the Pirates rallied to tie it in the sixth. But Milwaukee pulled out the win when rookie pinch-hitter Caleb Gindl hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning. "If you would have told me back when I was 19 that Id hit at least 350 home runs in my career, I would have taken that," Ramirez said. "I was a kid then and Im an old man now but it just goes to show you that if you play long enough you can put up some numbers." The Brewers won their third in four games while handing the Pirates their third straight loss. Pittsburgh dropped 1 1/2 games behind St. Louis in the NL Central after the Cardinals beat Cincinnati 6-1. With the game tied 6-6, Rafael Betancourt hit a one-out double off Bryan Morris (5-7) and took third on Scooter Gennetts single. Gindl then lifted a fly to right that scored Betancourt. Milwaukees Norichka Aoki reached base in all five plate appearances, with two singles and three walks. Jonathan Lucroy added three hits, and Gennett had two. "I like what were doing offensively," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "That was an outstanding offensive performance." Pedro Alvarez went 4-for-4 with a walk, and hit his NL-leading 32nd home run for the Pirates. Neil Walker had a three-run homer among his two hits. Andrew McCutchen, Andrew Lambo and Felix Pie also had two hits. Earlier Tuesday, the Pirates acquired right fielder Marlon Byrd and catcher John Buck from the New York Mets to bolster an offence that ranks 24th in the major leagues in runs. Both players are expected to join the team on Wednesday. With the Pirates down by a run, McCutchen doubled and Alvarez walked with one out in the ninth, but Jim Henderson held on for his 22nd save in 25 opportunities. Rob Wooten (3-0) allowed Alvarezs homer but pitched 1 1-3 innings for the win. "It was as strange game. Real strange," Walker said. "Back and forth, back and forth. But it was no different than what weve played all year. Down 5-0, a lot of teams pack it in. But we have a lot of heart and nobodys thhrowing in the towel until the last out. Wojciech Szczesny Jersey. " Both starting pitchers had rough outings. The Brewers Kyle Lohse gave up five runs and 13 hits in 5 1-3 innings. Pirates All-Star left-hander Jeff Locke was tagged for five runs and eight hits in 4 2-3 innings. Lohse had been 4-1 with a 2.05 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break. Locke has struggled of late, allowing 16 runs and 23 hits in 11 1-3 innings in his last three starts. Over his last seven outings, he is 0-2 with a 7.02 ERA. Alvarez tied it 6-6 by lining a solo home run off the right-field foul pole, snapping a tie with Arizonas Paul Goldschmidt for the league lead. "Alvarez is hot and he just smoked that ball," Roenicke said. Milwaukee had gone ahead by a run in top of the inning when Ramirez lined a two-out RBI double to centre that scored Lucroy, who had singled. A first-inning run scored when Ramirez grounded into a double play. He hit a solo home run, his eighth of the season, with one out in the fourth. After Lucroy hit a two-out RBI single in the fourth, Ramirez followed with a two-run double that put the Brewers up 5-0. The Pirates came back to tie it with four runs in the fifth and one in the sixth. Pie drove in the first run with a pinch-hit double that bounced off Aokis glove in right field and, one batter later, Walker hit his ninth home run, a three-run shot that carried over the right-field stands. Lohse grabbed his head and shouted an obscenity when Aoki failed to make the play. "You cant afford to give a team like the Pirates second chances and theyll take advantage, which they did because I didnt make pitches after that," Lohse said. "I let the inning get away from me there but fortunately we were able to still win." Pie, who remained in the game to play left field, made it 5-5 in the sixth with a run-scoring single but the Pirates were never able to gain a lead. "Its a good win for us," Ramirez said. "Were in fourth place (in the NL Central) and were not going to playoffs but its fun to play teams that are going to the playoffs. These felt like a playoff game." NOTES: Pittsburgh LF Starling Marte was examined by hand specialist Thomas Graham on Tuesday and no structural damage was found in his bruised right hand. Marte, on the disabled list since Aug. 19, was told he cant swing a bat for at least two more weeks. . Milwaukee rookie LF Khris Davis 11-game hitting streak ended as he went 0-for-5. . Pirates 1B Garrett Jones did not start but his slump extended to 1-for-34 when he flied out with the bases loaded in the sixth inning as a pinch-hitter. . LHP Tom Gorzelanny (3-5, 3.60) will start for Milwaukee on Wednesday night against RHP Charlie Morton (5-3, 3.42).
