Pirates' Ivan Nova: Leaves game with calf discomfort

Nova left Saturday's game in the seventh inning with right calf discomfort, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

At this point, Nova's status for his next scheduled start is up in the air. A decision regarding his availability may not be made until early next week. Nova pitched very well before the injury popped up, allowing two runs on three hits while striking out six over 6.1 innings. It was just his fourth quality start of the second half.
