Hiroki Kuroda says he doesn’t know what his future holds beyond this season.
Cy Young? Maybe, maybe not. But Hiroki Kuroda has pitched well enough to dream. And Matt Harvey’s season speaks for itself. It would be nice if the year ended with a little positive history.

Chris Sale allowed one run while outpitching Hiroki Kuroda into the eighth inning, and the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Ichiro Suzuki homered off Tanner Scheppers with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the New York Yankees to a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.
The good news is that the Yankees are just 3 1/2 games out of first place. The troubling news is that they’re just four games out of last.
