Kuroda K’s 11, Yankees Blank White Sox 4-0
Hiroki Kuroda struck out eleven while allowing just three hits through seven innings and the Yankees got three solo-home runs to beat the White Sox 4-0 on Saturday afternoon in the Bronx.
Curtis Granderson had a first innings solo-shot, his second homer in as many nights, giving him 23 on the year. Dewayne Wise had an RBI double and solo blast, and Robinson Cano went deep as well helping the Yankees snap a two-game slide.
Jake Peavy (6-5) allowed all four of New York’s runs on eight hits in eight innings of work.
David Robertson worked a perfect eighth inning, while Boone Logan and Rafeal Soriano shut the door in the ninth.
The Yankees (47-30) will send Phil Hughes to the mound on Sunday afternoon against Chicago’s Gavin Floyd, hoping to earn a split of the four game series.
