Boston had at least one runner on base in eight of the nine innings, but could do very little against Nova (6-7-2-0-5, 93), who has not been charged with a loss in his last 19 starts, dating back to last June. David Ortiz homered to lead off the second and doubles by Cody Ross and Mike Aviles brought in another run in the fifth.
