After the Old Timer’s Day [2] festivities today, Ivan Nova returned from the DL and pitched a good game. According to Chad Jennings [3]:

“Their guy really settled in,” [Joe] Maddon said. “I don’t understand why this guy struggles. I have never seen him bad. I don’t know — one of the best pitchers in the world as far as I’m concerned. He gets that hook over and he’s really tough on left-handers.”

Score was tied 1-1 in the seventh and there were two men out when Nova hit a batter (Desmond Jennings, elbow) and then another (Ben Zobrist, foot) and by the time the inning was over, three pitchers later, the Rays had a 2-run lead on the count of James Loney’s RBI single against Boone Logan.

A shame for sure but something had to give and after scoring a run in the first, the Yanks were blanked for the rest of the afternoon.

Final Score: Rays 3, Yanks 1 [4].

So they settle for a split of the four-game series. Not stellar and not a disaster, pretty much like the Yankee season so far.
