Not-so-super Nova

Ivan Nova mowed down the first three hitters he faced, touching 95 on the Jays' gun. But then, just as Hiroki Kuroda did yesterday, he suffered from a second-inning letdown, allowing a three-run homer on a shot to right by catcher J.P. Arencibia. Plenty of other hard-hit balls in the inning, too.

A-Rod and Tex update: Two weak infield grounders off Cecil.
