After splitting a short two-game series with the American League East-leading Baltimore Orioles the New York Yankees cross the border into Canada Wednesday to begin another brief two-game series, this one at the Rogers Centre with the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda (3-4, 3.56 ERA) to the mound Wednesday night (7 p.m. ET/YES Network). Toronto will pitch Kyle Drabek (2-4, 3.66 ERA).

Kuroda will be seeking his first road victory of the season. He is 0-3, 4.32 away from Yankee Stadium so far this season.

The Yankees are dealing with a bullpen shorted by the season-ending injury to Mariano Rivera and the strained oblique that landed replacement closer David Robertson on the 15-day disabled list earlier this week.

In the second game of the series on Thursday night Phil Hughes (3-4, 5.50) will take the mound for New York for the first time since his best outing of the season, a 7.2-inning effort in a victory over the Seattle. Drew Hutchinson (2-1, 5.53) will pitch for Toronto.
