Ivan Nova won his fifth straight start this afternoon, pitching the Yankees to a 4-1 win that finished off a series sweep in Washington. The Yankees have now swept three straight series, including all six games on this National League road trip. They’ve won 19 of their past 23 and head home with the best record in the American League. Nova allowed one run through 7.2 innings, with the only Nationals run coming on a solo homer. The Yankees got solo shots from Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano, who were two of four Yankees to have more than one hit in the game. Rafael Soriano got his 13th save of the season.
