Nova leads Pirates vs. Anderson, Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Ivan Nova will take the mound Thursday as the Pittsburgh Pirates look to win a third consecutive series at Miller Park.

Nova has recorded quality starts in each of his last four outings and taken the victory in his last two. He has lasted at least six innings in all 14 of his starts this season.

"I do think he's matured on the mound now that he realizes strikeouts maybe aren't what they used to (be) to him seven years ago," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "Then there's times when I think he's got the stuff where he knows, 'I've got to strike out,' and he'll go get it. More often than not, his focus is on soft contact, early outs. He's been able to follow that plan really well so far."
