Aug 29 – Super Nova: Yanks Take White Sox 2-1, Gain Road Trip Split

Rookie Gets First Win, Yanks Reach 80 Wins

(Chicago, IL) – Make that two impressive starts now for the call-up from the minors.  Ian Nova (1-0), gave the Yankee starting rotation a much needed boost, tossing 5.2 innings allowing only one run and striking out 7 for his first ever career victory.  Marcus Thames continued his hot hitting with another homer to start the Yanks off in the 2nd and a RBI single by Brett Gardner was all they would need as they held on for their 80th win against 50 losses.  Logan, Wood and Joba pitched well in relief and Mo garnered his 27th save.

The win also gave a much needed boost to a so-so road trip. The Yanks remained tied with Tampa for the AL East lead and head home to play Oakland.
