Game 32: New York Yankees at Los Angeles Angels, Kuroda vs. Wilson

Vintage Kuroda could relieve the Yankees' worries

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

If Kuroda were #HIROKI tonight instead of hiroki!, how much better would you feel about the team's fortunes over the next few weeks while we wait for Pineda to return to action?

The Bombers have dropped five of their last six, and have only won one game this year when tied or trailing after 6 innings. So a big, early lead is a little important, especially against CJ Wilson.

Go Yankees. Go baseball.
