Red Sox beat Yanks 5-1 after getting Pineda tossed
Question of the Day
Pineda was ejected for using pine tar less than two weeks after appearing to get away with using a foreign substance in another game against Boston, and the Red Sox beat New York 5-1 on Wednesday night behind eight solid innings by John Lackey.
“There was no talk about it,” Boston first baseman Mike Napoli said. “We had a game plan against him. He has good stuff. There was no thought of it, but everyone saw it. You could see it on his neck. Something had to be said.”
“When it’s that obvious, something has got to be said,” Farrell said after the game. “Our awareness was heightened, given what we had seen in the past.”
Lackey rebounded from a pair of rough starts, holding the Yankees to one run and seven hits, striking out 11 and not walking a batter.
“The bullpen’s been kind of taxed a little,” Napoli said. “For him to come out and give us eight strong, it was huge for the team.”
Lackey (3-2) had allowed six earned runs in each of his past two starts, one coming against the Yankees in a 7-4 loss on April 12.
“I was thinking about trying to give the bullpen a rest, for sure,” Lackey said. “We’ve got some guys down there who have been working pretty good the last week or so - I just wanted to get those guys a little bit of breather and win a ballgame.”
Koji Uehara struck out three in the ninth in a non-save situation.
Pineda (2-2) had nothing on the right side of his neck in a photo of him on the mound in his tough first inning, when four of the first six batters reached on hits. He said he put it on to get a better grip on the ball.
