Martha Stewart dooms New York Yankees' flawless game with a single tweet
Pineda worked quickly and often used off-speed pitches during his seventh career double-digit strikeout game.
After losing the ideal game, Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothchild made a trip to the mound to settle down Pineda, who promptly finished the inning with a strikeout of Brad Miller.
Pineda started 15 of his first 18 batters with strikes and didn't fall behind 2-0 in a count until the sixth inning. The Rays are 1-4 in Cobbs last 5 starts vs. Yankees, 3-8 in the last 11 meetings in NY and the over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in NY. He gave up his first and only run when Logan Morrison homered in the eighth. "Prior to getting the call to head to the 'Big Apple", Montgomery previously made one start for the club's Advanced Single-A affiliate en route to allowing three hits and one unearned run across five innings of work. Headley, batting.375, led off the seventh with his second home run, and Matt Holliday chased Cobb with a run-scoring double in the eighth. Chris Carter greeted Austin Pruitt with an RBI triple, and Castro followed with a two-run homer.
That said, Martha Stewart absolutely jinxed the hell out of Michael Pineda, and she owes him a very tasetful yet elaborate floral arrangement by way of apology. Ceremonial first pitches were thrown by former Yankees manager Joe Torre and old NY stars Tino Martinez and Willie Randolph, part of the staff for the championship USA team at the World Baseball Classic. It's a longstanding bit of silliness that far too many people abide by, including members of the press, not to mention a flawless game or no-hitter in progress, as if there's some higher power devoting their attention to making sure that humans are deadly quiet and respectful vis a vis the process of getting 27 outs without allowing a base runner or hit.
