I missed most of this one, so this’ll be quick. Ivan Nova recovered from a shaky first inning to go seven strong, striking out four and only giving up three hits as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 3-2. The win, coupled with Boston’s loss to the Rangers, landed the Yankees back [...]

Well, we’re about to be at that point where the Yankees are going to whittle the rotation down to five guys. Phil Hughes had some okay starts lately, despite a clunker against Oakland and a not-so-hot but not-as-awful-as-it-looked start against Boston on Wednesday night. A.J. Burnett has just been bad overall, [...]
The Yankees and Red Sox have now played 15 games this season, and last night’s win improved the Bombers to 4-11 in those contests.
The Yankees entered the series hitting .225/.320/.375 against Boston, and .269/.348/.455 on the 2011 season. They leave with a line of approximately .226/.322/.369 against Boston on the year (for some reason [...]
