Hollywood Ending

get-attachment (90)

Kuroda and Kershaw were both terrific last night. Kuroda gave up 5 hits, a walk and struck out 8 in 7 innings; Kershaw gave up 5 hits, didn’t walk anyone and struck out 5 over 8 innings. And so the game was tied in the 9th when Lyle Overbay got a pinch-hit single and then Mark Ellis and Yasiel Puig¬†screwed the pooch on a fly ball allowing 2 more runs to score.

That was more than enough for Mo who got a couple of strikeouts and a ground ball as the Yanks said goodbye to Hollywood.

Final Score: Yanks 3, Dodgers 0.

Chad Jennings, as always, has the notes.

By the way, just to remind everyone, Jim Leyland didn't think Hiroki Kuroda was good enough to be an all star.

Yep, that's exceptionally lame. At least our ace didn't have to throw extra meaningless innings.
