Ivan Nova was lifted in the seventh inning of Sunday night's game against Baltimore with the Yankees ahead, 8-3. Barring a late-inning comeback by the Orioles, Nova will win his sixth straight decision since returning from Triple-A Scranton, where he was sent to make room in the rotation for Phil Hughes.

If he wins on Sunday, Nova will be 14-4 and stating an even stronger case for American League Rookie of the Year.

On Sunday, he allowed three runs on seven hits in seven-plus innings.
