Nova dazzles in series finale

What a difference this was. One start after Ivan Nova struggled in Kansas City — and one day after A.J. Burnett was knocked around here in Minnesota — Nova delivered an absolute gem in a 3-0 Yankees win against the Twins. Wrapping up a five-win road trip, Nova was as good as he’s been all year. He pitched out of jams — most of which weren’t his fault — to finish with seven scoreless innings, his first scoreless outing of the season. Alex Rodriguez was hitless in his return, but Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira hit back-to-back home runs in the seventh. Granderson’s was an inside-the-park homer and moved him into a tie with Jose Bautista for the most home runs in the big leagues.
