MLB: New York Yankees 3, Baltimore 0

April 14, 2013 at 10:59 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, April 14 (UPI) -- Hiroki Kuroda hurled a five-hit shutout and Brett Gardner bashed a two-run homer Sunday, helping the New York Yankees breeze past Baltimore 3-0.

Kuroda (2-1) didn't issue a walk in his 113-pitch gem, striking out five Orioles batters as New York's infield turned a pair of double plays behind him.

The whitewash was the fifth in the Japanese hurler's major league career.

Gardner's fifth-inning blast off the right-field foul pole with Francisco Cervelli aboard extended the Yankees' one-run lead and secured their victory in the rubber match of a three-game series.

Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen (0-2) absorbed the loss, surrendering three runs on six hits in a six-inning outing.
