Nova struck out four, ending the game with a 2.48 ERA and 1.03 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Nova's pitch-to-contact approach has caught up with him a bit over his last three starts, but he's still been pretty solid and has made four straight starts on the road. With the Pirates playing 22 of their next 31 at home, he'll have plenty of chances to be effectively efficient again.
