Wild inning costs Yankees, carries Rangers

It was a three-run fifth inning that made the difference for tonight, and that inning came with the Rangers getting only one hit. Ivan Nova and Dave Robertson combined to walk three batters, hit a batter and throw three wild pitches in the fifth, and the three runs that came across carried the Rangers to a 5-3 win. Nova hasn’t pitched out of the fifth in either of his past two starts. The pitching bright spot for the Yankees was easily Lance Pendleton, who was called up earlier in the day and pitched three hitless innings in his big league debut.
