NEW YORK – Ivan Nova recorded a career-high 12 strikeouts, but one bat he didn’t miss was Joey Votto’s, and it cost him – and the Yankees – the game.

The interleague loss marked another frustrating day for the Yankees (21-19) at bat, and a puzzling day on the mound. The Yankees, who have lost five of seven, scored twice and knocked out Reds closer Sean Marshall in the ninth, but Jose Arredondo got Derek Jeter to hit into a force out and Curtis Granderson to ground to first to strand the potential tying and winning runs in scoring position. “We didn’t get the last hit when we needed it,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “It was good that we came back, but it was frustrating.” The Red are 20-19 but Votto, their marquee player, has begun heating up. After hitting two homers in the Reds’ first 32 games, he hit...
