The Yankees have won their first game of the season as they hand the Orioles their first lost. All I was asking and probably most Yankee fans too, was to get at least 7 innings from Nova and timely hitting from the offensive side. Both were achieved and the Yanks won 6-2. Nova was not spectacular as he gave up 10 hits in total but sure was efficient, as he scattered them throughout the seven innings. Most importantly, he made the clutch pitches when he had to. Nova’s performance tonight was similar to how Sabathia pitches when he isn’t on all cylinders. Nova is proving to be a very reliable pitcher for this ailing Yankee pitching staff and will need to be at his prime for the rest of the season.
Here are the Yankee hitting stats:
Let’s hope we can sweep this series, go Yanks!
