Kucks' daughter, Laura-Jean Arvelo, told The New York Times he died Thursday in Saddle River, N.J.
Kucks was in his second season with the Yankees when he shut out the cross-town Dodgers in the seventh game of the '56 Series. He compiled a 54-56 career record with a 4.10 ERA in six Major League seasons.
The Times said 1957 was by far Kucks' best year. He went 18-9, made the All-Star Game and was considered the most reliable New York starter other than the great Whitey Ford.
