Ivan Nova Hit Hard In Yankees’ 6-1 Loss To Blue Jays
DUNEDIN, Fla. (WFAN/AP) — J.P. Arencibia and Travis Snider homered and Brett Cecil gave up one hit over two scoreless innings Thursday as the Toronto Blue Jays beat New York 6-1.
Yankees starter Ivan Nova didn’t have his best stuff, surrendering six hits and five earned runs over 2.2 innings Thursday.
“I just missed location again,” he said. “When you don’t have your location, you can’t have a good game. If you can’t get ahead with the fastball, you have a problem.”
The Yankees learned earlier in the day that All-Star setup man David Robertson sprained his right foot when he stumbled on the stairs at his house.
Instead of making his second spring training appearance, Robertson made two trips to a hospital for X-rays, an MRI and a CT scan.
“The initial tests that he took gave us some cause for concern,” manager Joe Girardi said. “We’re not sure what’s going on.”
Adam Lind opened the second inning against Nova with a double to left-center, took third on Brett Lawrie’s single and scored on Colby Rasmus’ grounder to shortstop before Arencibia launched a drive over the left field wall.
The Blue Jays added two runs in the third on singles by Kelly Johnson, Jose Bautista and Lind off Nova, and Bautista scored on a passed ball by Francisco Cervelli.
