Bullpen backs up Nova's rough start with perfect 3.1 innings as Yanks avoid sweep

Ivan Nova gave up 2 earned runs in a tough-to-watch 5.2 innings, Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI, and Adam Warren, Shawn Kelley, and David Robertson combined to throw a perfect 3.1 frames of relief tonight as the Yankees destroyed any possibility of an 0-162 season by beating the Astros, 4-2. Throughout his performance here, Nova really was awful, but thanks to 4 double plays he was able to escape with a W.

Anyway, as you can see by that score, the Yanks offense kinda came alive this evening, as Derek Jeter, Brett Gardner, and Solarte each hit RBI Singles. Besides them, Carlos Beltran also drove in a run on a Sac Fly, while Ichiro, the guy who everyone is convinced sucks for some reason, went 2-for-4 with a couple of runs. So yea, this game went pretty well. It was frustrating in the first couple of innings, but in the end, everything worked out.
