New York Yankees 0 — Toronto Blue Jays 6

 

Morrow shut down bats while Nova could not in tonight’s 6-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

 

Ivan Nova may have been auditioning for a postseason start in tonight’s game and it went bad quick. Nova could not finish 5 innings in tonight’s start. Nova’s first slip up came in the 3rd inning when the 1-out walk came back to haunt him. The next batter to follow the walk was Brett Lawrie and the Toronto third baseman took Nova deep for a 2-run home run. Edwin Encarnacion continues his outstanding season with a 2-run double in the 5th inning. Nova would get 1 more out but it would be an overall poor outing in which he gave up 4 runs on 6 hits. Derek Lowe would give up 1 run in his 2 innings of work and David Aardsma would make his Yankees debut tonight. The former Mariners closer would go 1 inning and would give up a home run to J.P. Arencibia in the 9th. Pitching has been critical to our recent success and can clearly be a huge reason for our losses.

 

Brandon Morrow cruised through 7 innings of work against the Yankees. Only 2 Yankees were able to get to Morrow, Robinson Cano and Russell Martin wee able to get the 4 hits against Morrow. Two players alone cannot carry an offense when the batters around them cannot produce. In 7 opportunities with runners in scoring position the Yankees were hitless. The Yankees couldn’t get any offense started and would lose as a result of this.

 

Win – Brandon Morrow (9-7)

Loss – Ivan Nova (12-8)
