Following C.C. Sabathia notching his first win of the season, the New York Yankees will look to win the series against the Minnesota Twins behind Hiroki Kuroda.
Kuroda has been a mixed bag thus far after signing a one-year, $10 million dollar deal to come over from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In his first game as a Yankee, Kuroda gave up four runs in a loss to Tampa Bay. However, he rebounded with a remarkable performance against the Angels in his home debut, throwing eight shutout innings.
Opposing Kuroda is Jason Marquis. The 33-year-old New York native is making his first career start for the Twins. Marquis pitched for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Washington Nationals last year, compiling a 8-6 record and a 4.43 ERA.
Despite being on seven different teams in his 12-year major league career, this will be the first game Marquis starts for an American League team.
The Bronx Bombers are ready to bring out the welcome wagon.
Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
