The Yankees really are not playing good baseball. They have now lost nine of their last 12 games. ... [T]he O's are suddenly 5.5 games [sic] and can go for the sweep on Wednesday afternoon. ...Joe Girardi: "He had no fastball. Inconsistent slider. Inconsistent curveball. ... He better get [his focus] back or it is going to happen a lot."
Ivan Nova, who has given up as many extra base hits as anyone in baseball, got crushed in the second. ... All [seven] runs came with two outs. ... He gave up a career worst nine runs on 10 hits.
Ivan Nova had a different assessment of his performance: "Bad luck."
