Ivan Nova pitches 6-hitter, Yankees beat Giants 6-0 to keep pace in AL wild-card race

Ivan Nova pitched a six-hitter for his second career shutout, Eduardo Nunez hit a two-run homer and the New York Yankees kept pace in the AL wild-card chase Saturday with an 6-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants.

Alfonso Soriano connected for the second straight day and Robinson Cano had an RBI single in a three-run third against Ryan Vogelsong (3-6), helping New York win for just the third time in eight games.

New York entered three games behind Cleveland for the second AL wild card with three teams ahead. The Yankees have seven games remaining, including three against the wild-card leading Tampa Bay Rays.

A day before New York honors retiring closer Mariano Rivera in a pregame ceremony, Nova (9-5) gave the Yankees' bullpen a rest.
