Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees will hand the ball to Ivan Nova as they look to bounce back from yesterday's loss.

Thursday's game could not have gone much better from the Yankees. Early on, yesterday's game looked like it might be going the same way. Then the Rays started to hit Hiroki Kuroda and then the bullpen totally imploded. The Yankees look to rebound today as Ivan Nova will take the mound.

Carlos Beltran will DH today, after sitting out yesterday. The lineup will have to deal with Chris Archer, who shut down the Yankees a couple times last season. However, unlike last year, Brent Lillibridge will not be getting three at bats for the Yankees. I hope.
