A-Rod update: A-Rod’s rehab game stats today with Single-A Tampa at Lakeland? There were none. Rainout.

Ichiro’s contribution: Suzuki has batted .346 with three homers, 10 RBI and seven steals over his last 21 games, which include eight multihit games.


Update, 7:13: Nova gives up one single but fans two in the first.

Update, 7:26: The Yankees wasted a leadoff double by Gardner. Be interesting to see how they do against a good pitcher as opposed to the Twins’ staff.

Update, 7:32: Nova serves up two-run HR to Wieters after hitting Davis with a curve.

Update, 7:45: The Yankees manage to work out one walk and that’s it in the second.

Update, 7:50: Luis Cruz looks impressive defensively, two nice plays in a 1-2-3 third.

Update, 7:56: Ichiro flies to the wall in right-center to cap another 1-2-3 third.

Update, 8:01: Nova gets another three-up, three-down inning with a little help from Cano.

Update, 8:16: Luis Cruz has a chance to get designated when Eduardo Nunez is ready, but in this game he looks like he belongs here, good on defense and an RBI single to cut it to 2-1 after four.

Update, 8:24: Nova strikes out the side in the fifth, looking good.

Update, 8:39: Bases loaded, one out, and Hafner flies to shallow center and Wells fouls out. Yankees get nothing.

Update, 8:47: Nova has his good curve again. He allows a leadoff single in the sixth, then gets a double-play ball and freezes Markakis with a curve.

Update, 8:55: End of six, Orioles two runs, three hits off Nova; Yankees one run, four hits off Gonzalez.

Update, 9:04: Two more Ks and a walk in the seventh against Nova, really has pitched a great game.

Update, 9:07: Troy Patton replaces Gonzalez for the seventh.

Update, 9:16: Cano reaches on a two-out error, and that’s it. Still only four Yankees hits through seven, two singles, two doubles.

Update, 9:22: Nova has another 1-2-3 inning with a strikeout. Now has 10 Ks.

Update, 9:23: Darren O’Day on for Baltimore.

Update, 9:33: Overbay single and that’s it. Nova out for the ninth. Romine catching.

Update, 9:40: Nova goes the full nine, two runs, three hits, 11 Ks. Jim Johnson, not always so reliable, on to try to close it out.

Update, 9:47: Bases loaded, one out for Hafner.

Update, 9:50: Johnson walks in the tying run on four pitches.

Update, 9:53: Wells RBI single, Yankees win 3-2.
