inning.  Carlos Beltran carried the offense with his three hits. 

Nova pitched 7 1/3 innings giving up two runs on eight hits.   He walked none and struck out four
and earned his second win of the season.  Matt Thornton pitched to one batter and retired him and
David Phelps gave up a hit and a walk and hit a batter in 1/3 of an inning.  He also struck out a batter
and Shawn Kelley saved his third game of the season pitching a perfect inning with two strikeouts. 

Felix Doubront lost his second game of the season.  He pitched 6 2/3 innings giving up seven hits
and three runs with three walks and two strikeouts.  Chris Capuano pitched 1 1/3 innings giving up a

the third on a Beltran homerun.  In the fourth Cervelli hit into a double play but the call was
challenged and was overturned allowing a run to score.  The Yankees had a 3-1 lead but Cervelli did
get hurt on the play and was taken out of the game.  In the sixth Napoli hit a solo homerun and that
would be the final run of the game.  The Yankees won the game 3-2.  The Yankees won three out of
