Former Gamecocks ace to start for the Yankees

Former Gamecocks ace to start for the Yankees

"It's top of the seventh here at Yankee Stadium and the Yankees are pitching a ideal game versus the Tampa Bay Rays", Stewart tweeted Monday afternoon. He gave up one run on two hits in 7 2/3 innings and didn't walk a batter. You could see the determination and the focus, and that has always seemed to rattle the 28-year old who is supposed to be so much a part of the Yankees future.

Michael Pineda showed Yankees fans on Monday what he's capable of doing.

Montgomery is the Yankees' fifth starter for the time being, though many thought his debut would take place Sunday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

He follows another Sumter native to Yankee Stadium.

And it also was the Michael Pineda the Yankees hope to get every fourth or fifth day on the mound.

Pineda will attack hitters with three different pitches: Change-up, Slider, and a Cutter.

The Yankees Michael Pineda had a ideal game going in the 7th, and Martha thought that was pretty cool, so she shared the state of affairs on Twitter. That's the kind of return the Yankees expected to get more often when they sent heavily-hyped catching prospect Jesus Montero, then 22, and righty Hector Noesi, 24, to the Mariners for Pineda and fellow righthander Vicente Campos on January 23, 2012. A week before April 16th, the Yankees chose to bring up Montgomery up early, especially since Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia could use an extra day of rest.

The number of plays that he missed due to the Spotify error would have narrowed the gap between his new track and that of Sheeran. Last week, the singer unveiled his debut solo effort, "Sign Of The Times", to a positive response from critics.

"It's the most fun when you play in your own house", he said.

"He was a four-pitch mix", the manager said. At a point, there was talk that this was going to be a historic Opening Day in the Bronx. Cobb beat Pineda in Florida last week. Verlander gave up an unearned run, 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4 over 7 innings.

Yankees Girardi: "I'm Curious About Him."

He said about the moment, "Don't lose focus ....be aggressive".

Pineda threw just 93 total pitches.

In a span of four pitches, Matt Holliday had a run-scoring double, Chris Carter had an RBI triple and Starlin Castro hit a two-run homer, with Rays leftfielder Mallex Smith slamming into the bullpen wall on the triple and rightfielder Steven Souza jr. slamming into the rightfield wall on the homer.

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.

The Rays had been victims of three flawless games since July 2009, and all in day games on the road, which is what they were facing Monday.
