Nova blanks Braves! Yankees take first place!

Ivan Nova (D.R.) pitches perfectly to put Yankees into first place

@SportsBata ..nuff said

Ivan Nova (8-2, 4.62 ERA) pitched seven innings of (five hit, six K) shut-out ball to blank the Atlanta Braves, 3-0 last night! #Cano RBI-single and #Ibanez solo HR gave the Yankees the lead! It was #Nova fourth straight win, and for this young talent out of D.R. is starting to show some consistency. The #Yankees (35-25) are now tied for first place with the Tampa Bay Rays (35-25) atop the AL East, and AL all together!!! Go Yankees! Back up top the rankings!

#NBA news: #Kobe and his wife, Vanessa Bryant, seem to be reconciling their recently filed divorce, and #NBA refs are honoring recently terminally ill referee.
