Yankees' Pineda flawless through 6 innings in home opener

Yankees' Pineda flawless through 6 innings in home opener

Fans who are headed to the game will find Yankee Stadium has got a few new upgrades including, new outdoor spaces with USB charging stations.

Pineda had a sellout crowd at Yankee Stadium on full alert as he powered through the Rays hitters, making effective use of off-speed pitches in an electrifying performance.

This time, the Tampa Bay Rays ran into the good Michael Pineda.

"It's good for us to have a game like this before going home and playing in front of our fans", manager Joe Girardi said. He gave up one run on two hits in 7 2/3 innings and didn't walk a batter.

Cobb had a solid season debut his last time out on the 5th against the Yankees back at Tropicana Field.

Neither pitcher hurt their cause when they combined to strike out 11 batters against a Class-A team in Florida.

Carter is hitting.154 (2-for-13) through his first 16 plate appearances this season while driving in two runs and striking out on four separate occasions. I feel better. Get the cleats on and kind of see where it goes.

Pineda gave up a home run by Logan Morrison in the eighth, but the Yankees scored five runs in the bottom of the inning.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are 5-1 in their last six home games versus a left-handed starter, and 5-2 in their last seven home games. Longoria came into the at-bat 6-for-37 lifetime against Pineda and when he reached second base, he tipped his cap toward the right-hander. "He had his slider going pretty good". I had just guessed slider on that pitch and he made a mistake.

But as time moved along and the weeding out process began, especially when Luis Cessa was removed from the picture, it suddenly became apparent that there was a job to be won at the top level of the Yankees organization. Paxton struck out eight and walked two while pitching in Seattle's home opener for the second time in his career. Scheduled to make his Major League Baseball debut, Montgomery will become the 49th player in SC history to make it to the Majors.

Anyway, here's what manager Joe Girardi liked about the 6-foot-6 lefty with the intriguing downhill angle to his delivery: "It was (his) four-pitch mix (curveball, cutter, change-up fastball)". In those three years he pitched on a College World Series Final team and a Super Regional team, compiling a 20-7 record, 2.87 ERA and 212 strikeouts in 253 and two-thirds career innings.
