Nova struck out three, ending the game with a 2.63 ERA and 1.05 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: The NL's Pitcher of the Month for April finally earned his first win in May, though he did log quality starts in each of his previous two outings. Nova has been hit rather hard this month, though, with opponents batting .327 off the right-hander in his four May starts.

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.
