Nova gets the Nod in finale
The Yankees bullpen is well rested. The only guy who I imagine will not be available tonight is David Phelps, after throwing 78 pitches in 5.1 innings of relief yesterday. If Nova does his job and goes six or seven strong innings tonight, Girardi will go to a rested Robertson and Mariano.
Jerome Williams has never faced the Yankees, but has faced Andruw Jones, Raul Ibanez, and Eric Chavez. None of the three have particularly good numbers against Williams, but he won't be facing two of the guys who have the most AB's against him.
