Yankees' Pineda perfect through 6 innings in home opener

Yankees' Pineda perfect through 6 innings in home opener”

The Yankees are going with Montgomery over Cessa and Green (and Mitchell and Warren) because they think he's is best able to help them win right now.

Pineda started 15 of his first 18 batters with strikes and didn't fall behind 2-0 in a count until the sixth inning. Kiermaier's fly ball required Brett Gardner to make a running catch near the foul line. "And Big Mike had a lot to do with that". It also occurred against the same opponent that tagged him for four home runs in NY almost a year ago. Ellsbury (.348), Holliday (.364), Castro (.310) and Headley (.375) are hitting over.300 to go along with a combined 14 RBIs.

It was one of the few off-speed pitches that Pineda missed his location with during his first win since August 5. The last time the Yankees began a season with five losses in their first six games occurred during the 74-win 1989 season, and NY was on the verge of matching that start Sunday in Baltimore.

Martha Stewart learned about the wrath of sports Twitter on Monday when she was blamed for ruining New York Yankee starter Michael Pineda's flawless game bid. He walked three and struck out six over seven innings. At least that's how they explained it to me.

"We swung at some balls we probably shouldn't have swung at", Morrison said. Longoria said it felt like the ideal game could happen, and he should know; he's been on the wrong end of three no-hitters. Instead, the Yankees pushed back their other starters one day, a move based on Masahiro Tanaka's outing Saturday in Baltimore. LHP Blake Snell (0-1) will pitch for the Rays.

Montgomery entered the rotation picture during the final two weeks of Spring Training, and impressed. "It's kind of a weird thing where just certain things bug it".

"He was a four-pitch mix", the manager said. He's 6-6. He's left-handed. Five days earlier, Pineda had turned 23 years old, and he was coming off a season in which he made the AL All-Star team and finished fifth in the Rookie of the Year voting. Pineda was very efficient, throwing 67 out of 93 pitches for strikes while not issuing a walk.

One pitch later, the flawless game ended when Evan Longoria lined a clean double to left field.

By rallying from a three-run deficit Sunday, the Yankees avoided what would have been their worst start since opening 1-7 in 1989.

From the fourth inning on, Pineda had to notice something special was happening. Montgomery's thrown 297 and two-thirds.

Bird said he would be available to manager Joe Girardi to pinch hit if needed.

"He's giving us a reason now just because of the stuff and how it's played and the swings and misses he's getting".
