Daily News Yankees Podcast: Ivan Nova, John Flaherty, Sweeny Murti

On this week's Daily News Yankees Podcast, Mark Feinsand goes one-on-one with Yankees starter Ivan Nova about his first few starts, his thoughts on the impressive performances by Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda and how he's become a more mature pitcher.

Early question: Can CC avoid big innings?

Now that Ivan Nova has made his first truly impressive start of the year, the highest ERA in the Yankees rotation belongs to the team’s No. 1 starter. Through three starts, CC Sabathia is 1-2 — the only Yankees starter with two losses — and he has a 6.63 ERA. But here’s how that ERA […]The post Early question: Can CC avoid big innings? appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Yankees end series with 3-2 win over Red Sox

(Updated: ADDS that Beltran's homer was 361st of career, tying Joe DiMaggio in Para 4) Yankees 3, Red Sox 2: Carlos Beltran went 3-for-4 with a home run and Ivan Nova worked 7 1/3 strong innings as New York clinched a series win over visiting Boston. Brett Gardner added two hits and scored a run for the Yankees, who sat Derek Jeter (quad) for the second straight day. Nova (2-1) ran into some early trouble but limited the damage to two runs and eight hits without walking a batter before David Phelps worked out of a bases-loaded jam in...

Nova pitches well in victory over Red Sox - Ivan Nova (S) New York Yankees

Ivan Nova pitched well in Sunday’s victory over the Red Sox, surrendering two runs on eight hits over 7 1/3 strong innings.

Nova off to shaky start

So what’s up with Ivan Nova? He allowed seven earned runs and 10 hits over 3 2/3 innings in losing to the Orioles after walking five in 5 2/3 in his first start in Houston. Nova only gave up two runs in that game and was the winner, but in this game, he couldn’t minimize […]The post Nova off to shaky start appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Implosion by Ivan Nova worries Joe Girardi

The last time two Yankees pitchers allowed seven or more runs in the same game -- as Ivan Nova and Vidal Nuño did in Tuesday's 14-5 loss to the Orioles -- was in 2009, the night Chien-Ming Wang and Anthony Claggett each tossed up an eight-spot in a 22-4 drubbing by the Indians.

For Nova, no more excuses

NEW YORK -- Ivan Nova has not earned the benefit of the doubt. So while Nova and the Yankees can say they want to simply throw these first two starts out as quickly as a couple of 90-plus mph fastballs, they can't do it. Not when Nova has yet to put together a full season of consistent success. This is the year Nova could graduate to the top-half of the Yankees' rotation. But after a strong spring training, he left his curveball and slider in Tampa.

Rapid Reaction: Orioles 14, Yankees 5

NEW YORK -- Ivan Nova got hit hard as the Baltimore Orioles blew out the Yankees, scoring 14 runs on 20 hits in a 14-5 Yankees loss. The Yankees' defense didn't help him that much, though -- one of the only bright spots -- Yangervis Solarte kept hitting, with two more doubles. Ivan the Terrible: Nova pitched poorly, making it through just 3 2/3 innings. He gave up seven runs (all earned) on 10 hits. Nova wasn't helped by his defense, so the line is a little worse than maybe it should have been.

Postgame notes: “Now I guess it’s turn around and high five”

On the night of Yangervis Solarte’s unlikely production at the plate, and Ivan Nova’s unthinkable series of escape acts, the new Yankees closer took his place in the ninth inning. He needed 13 pitches to finish off the Yankees first win of the year and pick up the first save of the post-Mariano Rivera era.

Yankees Insider: Nova not feeling the pressure yet

Ivan Nova has felt playoff pressure before, so even with his Yankees facing an embarrassing season-opening sweep against the lowly Astros, the pitcher isn’t changing his approach.
