The Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound tonight in game two of a three-game set against the Braves. Kuroda will have a hard time topping Sabathia’s outing, but he has pitched well as of late. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning on June 8, then struck out a season-high eight batters Wednesday as he allowed two runs over six innings. Kuroda hasn’t lost since May 21.
Nick Swisher is back in the lineup.
Right-hander Tim Hudson (4-3, 3.90 ERA) is on the mound for the Braves.
