Ivan Nova is still battling CC Sabathia for the final rotation spot (one I think CC will win simply because CC is making $25MM /yr) but if he and Bryan Mitchell are the two long men/spot starters, both did well tonight.
The two combined for seven innings of one-run ball, and Yankee minor leaguers erupted for five runs in the eighth as the Yanks beat Boston 6-3 to raise their S.T. record to 4-8-2.
Aaron Hicks homered.
Cesar Puello and Cito Culver each drove in two runs.
Dustin Ackley had two hits.
Nova 4 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 1 walk and 4 K.
Mitchell 3 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 walks and 1 K.
Rumbelow 1 IP, 1 R, 4 H, 0 walks and 1 K.
Goody 1 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 0 walks and o K.
