|New York-Detroit ALDS|
Unless Nova was injured, that's an awfully quick hook for a starting pitcher on normal rest, but Girardi did say it was "all hands on deck" Thursday night. If Nova's not injured, Girardi simply didn't like what he saw and elected to get Nova out of the game (UPATE: Girardi said during an on-camera interview that Nova was "tightening up." So that's why he was pulled). Phil Hughes took over and worked around a Young single for a scoreless third inning to keep the score 2-0 Detroit.
UPDATE: With one out in the fourth, Hughes allowed a single and Girardi removed him in favor of Boone Logan. Evidently, Girardi's plan is to use many different pitches in small doses.
