      White Sox's Ivan Nova: Takes no-decision

      Ivan Nova took a no-decision in Thursday's win over the Yankees, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five through 5.2 innings.The 32-year-old held his former Yankees team to one run over six innings earlier this season, but he couldn't make it happen this time. Nova handed the Yankees a 2-0 lead in the second inning thanks to a wild pitch and an RBI single by Clint Frazier. Then in the fourth, he gave up a two-run homer to Brett Gardner. Luckily, the Chicago White Sox worked their way out of the 4-0 deficit, but Nova left the game with the score still tied, 4-4. It's been a rough June for the right-hander, who's coughed up 11 runs in 18 innings. He'll carry a 6.28 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 51:21 K:BB into a Tuesday matchup at the Cubs.

      White Sox's Ivan Nova: Blasted by Blue Jays

      Ivan Nova (2-4) took the loss Friday, getting slammed for nine runs (eight earned) on eight hits and four walks over three-plus innings while striking out one as the Chicago White Sox were routed 10-2 by the Blue Jays.Three of Toronto's eight hits off Nova left the yard, including a two-run shot by Vlad Guerrero Jr. in the fourth inning that helped finally chase him from the game. The right-hander has coughed up at least five runs in five of nine starts this season, and nine runs twice in his last five, and both his command and control have deserted him -- he's walked 13 batters and served up 10 homers in 25.2 innings over that five-start stretch. Nova may not turn things around any time soon either, as his next outing is scheduled for Wednesday in Houston.

Nova needs several more of these to get his numbers back to normal, though, as his ERA sits at 6.29.
