Two days ago, this was a bad road trip for the Yankees. They’d lost three of the first four games but bounced back last night, and because of Ivan Nova they’ll go home having taken two of three from the White Sox. Nova pitched 5.2 innings in his second big league start, earning the 2-1 win and keeping the Yankees in the game despite very little offense. Marcus Thames homered again — he’s gone deep in four straight starts — and Francisco Cervelli had four hits, including a double that led to a run.
