Three games, three losses. With CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, and Phil Hughes winless, the baton is passed to Ivan Nova. Nova had the worst spring training of any starter in the Yankee system, and now the Yankees are relying on him to stop this 3 game lossing streak. Against the surging Orioles, he might have a difficult night. In Nova’s career 25.1 innings against Baltimore, he has posted a 3.55 ERA, and at Camden a 4.38 ERA.
Facing the lefty handed pitcher Brian Matusz, the Yankee will roll out the new lefty lineup with Alex Rodriguez DHing and Eduardo Nunez at 3B. After finishing 5th for Rookie of the Year award in 2010, Matusz struggled heavily last year. In his career versus the Yankees he has a 4.70 ERA, and nearly a 1.500 WHIP. The Yankees should have no problem hitting the lefty, so a strong start from Nova should give the Yankees a very good chance to win. Here is today’s lineup.
|Derek Jeter SS||Nolan Reimold LF|
|Nick Swisher RF||J.J. Hardy SS|
|Robinson Cano 2B||Nick Markakis RF|
|Alex Rodriguez DH||Adam Jones CF|
|Mark Teixeira 1B||Matt Wieters C|
|Curtis Granderson CF||Mark Reynolds 3B|
|Andruw Jones LF||Wilson Betemit DH|
|Russell Martin C||Chris Davis 1B|
|Eduardo Nunez 3B||Robert Andino 2B|
The game starts at 7:05 pm EST on YES. GO YANKEES!
