Yankees look to build off series win over Red Sox

After a horrible outing in his last start, Ivan Nova allowed just two earned runs in 7 1/3 innings while leading the New York Yankees to a 3-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night to secure a 3-1 series win over the defending champs. As usual, the first meeting between these two historic rivals wasn’t without controversy, and with Thursday’s incident involving Michael...

New York Yankees Post Mortem: 13-April-2014: Boston Game 4: Yanks take series as Nova shines bright & Beltran comes to the rescue

Starting Pitching: Ivan Nova's sinker made a very welcome return after a very disastrous outing versus the Orioles last week. Nova limited the Red Sox to just two runs; one via home run and was also able to last into the 8th inning to give the bullpen some much needed rest. His final line was 7.1 innings on 97 pitches (67 strikes) 2 runs on eight hits (one home run...

New York Yankees win early series match-up against Boston

Give me one second to celebrate this series win by the New York Yankees because you may not know this but my older brother is the black sheep/Red Sox fan of our family and he will be thoroughly disappointed that our first series match-up against the 2013 World Series Champions was a win for the New York Yankees and not for Boston. Poor boy. Ok, celebration goes on the back burner...

OJTB: Yankees Win Three of Four Against Red Sox

The Yankees’ pitching keyed the victory. Coming off a disastrous outing against the Baltimore Orioles last Tuesday (3.2 IP; 10 hits; 7 ER), RHP Ivan Nova rebounded nicely on Sunday. Nova (2-1; 5.94 ERA) overcame some rocky moments—such as 1B Mike Napoli’s sixth inning homerun—throughout the course of the contest to pitch 7.1 frames. He surrendered only two runs on eight hits...

Yankees game 13 lineup: 4/13/14

The Yankees go for the series win tonight, as Ivan Nova faces off against Felix Doubront. Derek Jeter, who was out of the lineup yesterday to rest, is not in tonight’s lineup either. The move is rather strange, considering the Yankees have an off day tomorrow. As of now, there is no reason from Joe Girardi on why Jeter is sitting. Fingers crossed. Game time: 8:05 pm ET – Yankee...

Ivan Nova Continues His Trend of Poor April Starts As Yankees Fall Back to .500

Ivan Nova has never had an April ERA below 5.00. That trend continued yesterday when he gave up seven runs in 3.2 innings, en route to a 14-5 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.Thank goodness for Kelly Johnson. Without his eighth inning solo home run the Yankees would have suffered a double digit defeat at the hands of the Orioles. Instead, they only lost by nine runs.That fact, plus...

New York Yankees: Ivan Nova is consistently inconsistent

The New York Yankees hoped Ivan Nova’s completion of the 2013 season was a sign of things to come. Maybe, just maybe he had figured out pitching at a high level for an extended period of time.After a not-so-great spring training and two starts into the regular season, it is apparent to me at least, that Nova is never going to be an elite starter. He might never be a very good...

Yankees vs Orioles (4/8/14)

Ivan Nova (1-0, 3.18 ERA) is coming off a hard fought win against the Astros to start the season. He will be up against Wei-Yin Chen (0-1, 6.35 ERA) in game two against the Os. Nova pitched without his sharp curveball in Houston, which made his start a battle. He had to rely on his sinker and his infield who turned four double plays to help him survive 5 2/3 innings with two runs...

New York Yankees Post Mortem: 03-April-2014: Houston Game 3: Yanks avoid sweep with better offense and timely defense

Starting Pitching: Ivan Nova did not have his best stuff in this game. But it was good enough. He threw 88 pitches with 47 strikes; having just one strike out. Nova gave up six hits (one double) along with 5 walks over 5.2 inning. The defense came to the rescue with four double plays to get Nova out of various jams. Bullpen Pitching: Adam Warren did a a good job; pitching...

It's Gonna Be a Good Year for Ivan Nova

I wish I could strongly evaluate Ivan Nova, but in reality, I can’t. I haven’t been able to watch him pitch much this spring, so until the season starts this is all I know: he’s been really, really good. But rather than listen to me say that, let’s talk to the people who actually have watched him every step of the spring, including Wednesday’s 6.1 innings of two-hit,...
