Game 52: New York Yankees at St. Louis Cardinals, Kuroda vs. Miller

New, comments

The Yankees and Cardinals finish up a 3 game set.

Hiroki Kuroda takes the hill against Shelby Miller.

Miller can be unhittable, but sometimes even he won't know where it's going. The 23 year old doesn't stack up strikeouts the way the Cardinals other young guns do and he's allowed nearly twice as many homers as the next closest pitcher on the staff, so his FIP is higher than his ERA.

Yep, Kuroda's numbers are still ugly, especially his hits per 9. Don't look.

Miller has only made it to the 7th inning once this season; if the Yankees can wait him out, they have a chance to dig into St. Louis' bullpen.
