Michael Pineda allowed four hits over six innings as the Yankees shut out the Cubs 2-0 in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

NEW YORK -- Completing a great day for the youthful part of the New York Yankees' rotation, Michael Pineda threw six shutout innings in a win over the Chicago Cubs Wednesday night. The Cubs have what can barely be considered a major-league lineup, but it was still impressive to see the Yankees use a pair of hard-throwing 25-year-old starters to dominate a day-night doubleheader. Masahiro Tanaka allowed just two hits in eight shutout innings Wednesday afternoon, and Pineda gave up four hits in his six innings in a 2-0 Yankees win Wednesday night.

Michael Pineda is starting for the Yankees in Wednesday's nightcap. Who should be given full credit for his comeback? ESPN New York, of course. From Jorge Arangure Jr.'s story in the New York Times.
