Nova beats former team, pitches Pirates over Yankees 2-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) Ivan Nova spent more than six years with the New York Yankees, fluctuating between good and not-so good as they waited for him to develop consistency to go with his occasionally top-end-of-the-rotation stuff.

It never happened and the Yankees moved on last summer, sending Nova to the Pittsburgh Pirates at the trade deadline.

Nine months after leaving New York, Nova looks like the guy the Yankees wanted all along. Nova provided his old team with a close-up look at what it's missing on Sunday, pitching four-hit ball over seven innings as the Pirates held on for a 2-1 victory.
