Nova struggles as Yankees fall to Pirates, 6-5

Ivan Nova gave up 2 earned runs in just 1.1 innings of work today as the Yankees lost their first game of the spring to the Pirates, 6-5. For the majority of this contest, the Yanks were actually ahead, as they led 5-2 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, but still, obviously, they did eventually blow that advantage.

Anyway, offseason signees Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, and Jacoby Ellsbury all made their team debuts in this one, going 0-for-3 with a strikeout, 1-for-2 with an RBI Single, and 1-for-1 with a single and two walks respectively. So yea, while this game was a loss, I'd say it went pretty well. The starters scored 4 runs in just 2 innings, and the bullpen was, for the most part, decent.
