I remember last year when Nova could never get out of the fifth inning. I remember this year when he had a couple of bad starts and everyone was rumbling about how much longer can the Yankees tolerate this. Well the questions were answered tonight as Nova pitched an eight inning, Four Hit, One run masterpiece. The bullpen hiccupped a little and allowed a couple of runs but it didn’t make a difference. You gotta love a day when the starter gets a win and Mariano Rivera gets a save.
Nova allowed one run in the first inning and then shut them down for seven innings and never allowed another batter to even make it to second base striking out seven along the way. He had his two seamer working and a devastating curve ball and to tell you the truth I don’t remember even seeing him have to go to his Change up, he was that good.The Yankees have been tearing it up lately and have won nine of their last eleven and are 13 games over .500 a season high.
Tomorrow Brian Gordon will get a chance at a win after going 5.1 solid innings and earned a no decision his last time out.
