Ace!

What else is there to say about Nova’s performance today. It was the ace-like start we’ve been missing from Kuroda and CC – just brilliant. The ninth inning got me worried when the O’s had the tying run at the plate and Nova was up to 102 pitches, but I was glad Joe left him in to finish up and get the complete game shutout.

The offense wasn’t as robust as last night but it didn’t need to be with him on the mound. Funny how Overbay, the forgotten man who wasn’t supposed to play, ended up with a bunch of hits.

So two in a row against a wild card rival. Not too shabby, Yankees. Finish the job tomorrow and give us hope that we can stay in this crazy race somehow.

    That was great watching such a great pitching performance. I got so nervous in the 9th it was hard to watch. I hope passing these wild card teams isn’t getting our hopes up only to be crushed but so far this weekend is fun.

    I know exactly how you feel, Barbara. I dread a big letdown but I’m trying to be realistic too and just enjoy the moment. (Sounds good, right? Haha)
