t was a discouraging encore performance at home for Kuroda, who threw eight shutout innings against the Angels last Friday. He was responsible for 10 of Minnesota’s 12 hits, and all six of the Twins’ runs.
Twins slugger Justin Morneau tagged Kuroda for two homers, the second one knocking New York’s starter out of the game. Minnesota has won two of three games in the set after entering the series with a 5-28 record in the Bronx since 2002.
This series is now officially a disappointment, and a Phil Hughes start away from being a disaster.
