3 Stars: Nova, Rivera & Boone

In 3 Stars, we will highlight standout performances.

* In the Yankees 1-0 loss to the Red Sox, Ivan Nova threw four scoreless innings and further his case to be in the rotation. Nova looked must sharper than he was in his first couple of games.

* Mariano Rivera needed 13 pitches to record four outs in the fifth. A Bill Hall error forced Rivera to do the extra work. Of course, Rivera barely sweated doing it. His next outing could be Friday or Saturday.

* Boone Logan has pitched four scoreless innings this spring. He only allowed two hits.
