Ivan Nova will have to wait a bit longer for his first playoff start, but he has his first playoff gem under his belt.
Thanks to the suspension of Friday night's game because of rain, Nova was a reliever when he made his first ever postseason pitch on Saturday night. You'd be hard pressed to find a better relief outing, even if you included Mariano Rivera.
Nova held the...
There was some uncertainty surrounding Ivan Nova last night. He had never pitched in a postseason game before, so how he would fare was, for many, an unknown. But not for his teammates.
“I know it’s the playoffs, but baseball’s baseball,” Derek Jeter said. “We played 162 games...
NEW YORK - When the Yankees handed the ball to their Game 2 starter in the American League Division Series last year it was as close to a sure thing as there has been in postseason baseball.
Andy Pettitte took the mound as the all-time leader in MLB history in postseason starts and wins - adding one that night and another in the American League Championship Series to finish with...
Jim Leyland was concerned about Yankee pitcher Ivan Nova before Saturday night's game. It wasn't just that Nova came into game with 16 wins on the season. Or that he carried a respectable 3.70 ERA. It was that his Tigers hadn't faced Nova before. This is the 24-year-old's first full season in the majors.
For the Yankees, it was worth the wait. Robinson Cano hit a grand slam and drove in six runs, Ivan Nova pitched brilliantly into the ninth inning and New York beat Detroit 9-3 in Game 1.
IVAN Nova is going second and Robinson Cano is hitting third.
This is not to suggest the old guard is dead around the Yankees. Heck, Derek Jeter is still leading off and Mariano Rivera is pitching last.
But clearly there is a transition going on with these Yankees as they...
Robinson Cano hit a grand slam and drove in six runs, rookie Ivan Nova pitched brilliantly into the ninth inning in an unusual relief appearance and the New York Yankees shook off a 23-hour rain delay to beat the Detroit Tigers 9-3 in their suspended playoff opener Saturday night.
Yesterday: Yankees 9, Tigers 3
When Game 1 resumed last night with both CC Sabathia and Justin Verlander on the bench, no one was sure how Ivan Nova would hold up. Just fine, as it turned out. The 24-year-old tossed 61/3 innings gave up two runs and saved...
NEW YORK — Robinson Cano hit a grand slam and drove in six runs, rookie Ivan Nova pitched brilliantly into the ninth inning in an unusual relief appearance and the New York Yankees shook off a 23-hour rain delay to beat the Detroit Tigers 9-3 in their suspended playoff opener ...
Terror, terror! Everybody's made a big stink about how terrifying Detroit's ace, Justin Verlander, is. We, of course, agree: nine strikeouts, two walks, and six hits per nine is plenty terrifying. And everyone's made a similar stink about how un-terrifying Detroit's other starters—Doug Fister, Max Scherzer, and Rick Porcello—are...
You say "Doug Fister," and I think "Carl Crawford." Like so much of what I write, this appears to make very little sense, but when you examine it further, you realize it makes even less sense.
