Game 43: Yankees vs Pirates Game 2

New, comments

We already won one. Let's take two.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees topped the Pirates in Game 1 of today's doubleheader behind Hiroki Kuroda and an early offensive outburst. Can they make it two to sweep the doubleheader and the series? Vidal Nuno gets the start for New York against Gerrit Cole, who was almost a Yankee before passing on pinstripes for college.
