Just a few quick Ivan Nova numbers while we wait for today’s Yankees lineup.

8 • Consecutive starts won by Nova. According to Elias, he’s the first Yankees rookie with a streak that long since Marius Russo in 1939.

12 • Consecutive Nova starts won by the Yankees. According to Elias, it’s the Yankees second-longest winning streak of games started by one pitcher in the past 30 years. Only Roger Clemens streak of 20 in 2001 is longer.

15 • Nova’s number of wins, the most among all Major League rookies. It’s also the most wins by a Yankees rookie since Stan Bahnsen won 17 in 1968. Bob Grim’s 20 wins in 1954 is the Yankees rookie record.

25 Career starts in which Nova has been given a lead. He’s lost none of them, going 16-0 in those games.
