Ivan Nova's first start after rehab from Tommy John Surgery was everything fans and the Yankees could of hoped for, 6 2/3 scoreless innings. Tonight he gets the unenviable task of trying to stop Mike Tr

out and Albert Pujols.

Supporting Nova tonight is Brett Gardner who is on fire. Gardner is 25 for 50 with four homers, seven doubles, 11 RBI and 15 runs in his past 11 games while hitting safely in his last seven. Gardy and the bombing will face the man the Angels hope will be their ace one day soon, Andrew Heaney. Heaney allowed one run and four hits in six innings of a 2-1 win in 13 over Houston on Wednesday.
