      White Sox's Ivan Nova: Struggles in loss

      Ivan Nova (4-9) was charged with the loss Wednesday against the Royals after surrendering six runs on six hits and five walks and recording two strikeouts over 4.2 innings.Nova got off to a messy start by giving up a pair of runs on four hits and a walk in the first inning. The 32-year-old settled down until his fifth and final frame, when he allowed three straight two-out walks and a two-run single to Jorge Soler to hand the Royals a 5-0 lead. Nova was pulled after 84 pitches and replaced by Jace Fry, who surrendered the final run charged to Nova on a single by Soler. It was an atypical outing for Nova, who issued a season-high five walks. The right-hander has walked more than two batters just four times in 20 starts this year and owns a 5.86 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 72:31 K:BB.
