|Rookie Pitcher Gets First Win as Yankees Beat White Sox
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Rookie Ivan Nova set aside any worries about a Major League Baseball investigation and earned his first career win, Marcus Thames hit another homer and the New York Yankees beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 on Sunday.
It was an impressive outing for Nova (1-0), who allowed one run and five hits with seven strikeouts and one walk in 5 2-3 innings. He outpitched Gavin Floyd (9-11) in his second start, a day after reports surfaced that the league is investigating him and a former minor league teammate for allegedly injecting each other with B-12 shots.
The vitamin is not on baseball's list of banned substances.
