Ivan Nova struggled right from the beginning of the game. He allowed a total of 8 runs but only 4 were earned. 2 errors on a potential double play by Robinson Cano and pickoff attempt by Francisco Cervelli in what was a very long 2nd inning with 6 runs scoring.
The Yankees attempted a rally in a 4-run 5th but a total of 5 runs is all they could come up with. The offense mustered a few rallies but it didn’t develop into any runs on the scoreboard.
It was good to see Robinson Cano in the lineup following getting a pitch off of his helmet and he showed that the pitch didn’t have much ill effect as he delivered a home run tonight.
