Nova and Nuno are two names that are four-letter names. It’s safe to say that both heard four-letter words after their outings today in a 14-5 Yankees loss.
Nova started and gave up 7 R in 3 2/3. Nuno also gave up 7 R, but in 3 1/3 innings of relief.
Nova gave up 3 runs before the Yanks had a chance to bat. Cesar Cabral (1/3) and Dellin Betances (1 2/3) pitched scoreless relief.
Rafael Soriano and Kelly Johnson HR’d in the Yankees loss. For Soriano, career HR #407 tied Duke Snider on the all-time list.
Derek Jeter got hit #3322. Jacoby Ellsbury got 3 hits and Yangervis Solarte had 3 hits and an RBI.
UConn pulled off the double, winning the mens’s NCAA basketball title last night and the women’s tonight. The women wound up 40-0 and beat a previously undefeated ND team tonight for the title, and beat ND badly.
