After getting in and out of trouble in the first four innings, Ivan Nova was burned in the fifth.

He allowed a three-run homer to Reds slugger Joey Votto with one out in the inning to give Cincinnati a 5-2 lead.

It seems to be all or nothing for Nova on Saturday. He has allowed six hits and five runs in five innings, but has struck out a career-high 11.
