Hiroki Kuroda's dazzling Yankee Stadium debut last week gave the Yankees the hope that they had signed a pitcher unfazed by the ballpark's hitter-friendly atmosphere. Wednesday night, Kuroda proved that he's as susceptible to a Bronx bummer as anybody else. Kuroda was pounded early and often in his first career start against the Twins, who beat the Yankees, 6-5, to earn no worse than a split of the four-game series at the Stadium. "We did the best we could," catcher Russell Martin said. "Hiro just didn't have his best command today. Nothing you can really do."
