Nova super as Yankees beat Twins

Strong 2011 debut from Ivan Nova, who allowed three runs in six innings as the Yankees beat Minnesota, 4-3. Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada homered, but Nova was the story, as he took a no-hitter two outs into the fourth inning and then held firm as the Twins tried to come back.

“Nova did exactly what we expect him to do,” A-Rod said. “Tonight, he made some pitches where last year, I think maybe the game could have got away from him.”

That Nova didn’t unravel late was the most encouraging aspect for the Yankees tonight, and several Yankees happily noted the change. Back with more from the clubhouse shortly.
