Ryu takes loss in the Bronx

NEW YORK (AP) ― Yankees fans showed Don Mattingly the love from the moment he took the lineup card to home plate Wednesday. Hiroki Kuroda, though, wasn’t feeling nostalgic when facing his old team.

Kuroda shut down Los Angeles into the seventh inning, Ichiro Suzuki homered and drove in three runs, and the New York Yankees spoiled Mattingly’s return to the Bronx with a 6-4 victory over the sloppy Dodgers in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.

“Once the game started I didn’t really focus too much on who I was facing,” Kuroda said through a translator.

Lyle Overbay hit a two-run double against South Korean rookie Ryu Hyun-jin (6-3) in the first game in New York between the old October rivals since Los Angeles clinched the 1981 World Series title with a win in Game 6 at the original Yankee Stadium. The teams that have met in a record 11 World Series ― eight won by the Yankees ― never faced off in interleague play at the Stadium before this week.

Baseball’s two injury battered $200 million teams have to pack a two-game series into one day because rain postponed Tuesday night’s opener.
