NEW YORK (AP) - Ivan Nova threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout, Robinson Cano had an RBI double in the first and homered in the eighth as the New York Yankees edged Baltimore 2-0 Saturday for their second straight win over the Orioles.
Nova (8-4) outworked Scott Feldman in an efficient 104-pitch outing for his second complete game, helping the Yankees move past the their division rival by a half-game in the AL wild-card chase. New York entered the final day of August trailing Oakland by 4 1/2 games. Baltimore trailed by four.
The Yankees appeared headed for another big offensive day after beating Baltimore 8-5 Friday night even though Alex Rodriguez was a late scratch with flu-like symptoms but Feldman (4-4) shut them down for seven innings after allowing a leadoff double to Brett Gardner and Cano's RBI hit to right field.
