Entering tonight’s series finale against the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees are the only team in baseball without a four game losing streak this season. Tonight’s starter Ivan Nova would like to keep it that way.

New York has lost three straight for the fifth time this season. The combination of rough pitching and silent bats has the Yankees off to a lackluster September.
