Former Gamecock to make Major League Baseball debut for the Yankees

A short three minutes after her tweet, Tampa Bay Rays player Evan Longoria hit just inside the left field line - ending Pineda's shot at throwing a no-hitter, the NY Post reported.

Pineda, who allowed one run and two hits in 7 2⁄3 innings after giving up four runs and eight hits in 3 2⁄3 innings in a loss to Tampa Bay last Wednesday in his first start, responded by striking out Brad Miller with a slider that was filthy all afternoon. 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.

According to CBS Sports, New York's Aaron Judge hit a game tying home run, and Starlin Castro's RBI single helped spark a four-run ninth inning for the Yankees as they completed their 7-3 comeback victory against the Baltimore Orioles.

"Every inning, (I) focused on getting outs quick, hitter by hitter - focused on being aggressive", added Pineda, who had lasted less than four innings against the Rays at Tampa Bay last week.

Headed our way on Wednesday from Yankee Stadium in Major League Baseball action, the Tampa Bay Rays and the New York Yankees will be continuing their series. And that something is taking the ball to make his first major league start tomorrow at Yankee Stadium.

NY improved to 3-4 with its 8-1 win.

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.




Pineda's ability to miss bats with his mid-90s fastball, slider and changeup is the reason NY has been so patient with him.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi informed the media after Monday's game that catcher Gary Sanchez will be out four weeks due to a Grade 1 strain of the muscle behind his right biceps, via MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.

"It's satisfying because he did pitch well", Girardi said.

Actually, the Yankees first baseman called it weird - twice - before Wednesday's game against the Rays at Yankee Stadium.

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

Pineda was so good that by the seventh inning, with a reasonable pitch count, Girardi was playing out scenarios in his head.

PADRES 5, ROCKIES 3 Wil Myers hit a leadoff triple in the eighth inning to complete the first cycle of his career, and visiting San Diego beat Colorado.
