Recap


Yankees 3, Orioles 0:
Hiroki Kuroda surrendered five hits in his fifth career shutout as New York blanked visiting Baltimore.

Brett Gardner banged a two-run homer off the foul pole in right and Jayson Nix added a sacrifice fly for the Yankees, who have won five of their last six.

Kuroda (2-1) struck out five and did not walk a batter. The veteran right-hander was hit by a comebacker in his first start and struggled with his command the next time out but had little trouble with the Orioles, allowing only one runner past first base.

Wei-Yin Chen (0-2) allowed three runs and six hits over six innings for Baltimore, which fell back to .500 at 6-6.

New York got Kuroda all the support he would need in the fifth, when Brennan Boesch and Francisco Cervelli reached on back-to-back singles. Boesch scored on Nix’s sacrifice fly and Cervelli came in on Gardner’s blast.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Injured Yankees CF Curtis Granderson was at the game and is taking a group of students from a Brooklyn school to see the Jackie Robinson biopic “42” on Monday. … Orioles CF Adam Jones went 1-for-4 and has hit safely in 11 of the first 12 games. … Kuroda had two shutouts and three complete games for New York in 2012.
