First Pitch: PINEda, Man of Substance?

First Pitch: PINEda, Man of Substance?

Michael Pineda's pitched at Fenway once before. The Yankees are hoping for a far different result tonight. Michael Pineda #35 SPNew York Yankees 2014 STATS GM3 W2 L1 BB3 K15 ERA1.00 On a Sunday in July three years ago, the Red Sox lit Pineda up for five runs in the first as part of a 12-8 Mariners' loss. Tonight, Pineda makes his Yanks-Sox, Fenway debut. Pineda is not the same pitcher he was then -- and the atmosphere promises to be much more intense.

Red Sox comment on Tanaka's command

Masahiro Tanaka did a fairly good job of beating the Red Sox down in Tuesday's 9-3 Yankees win at Fenway Park. Yet the compliments from the Boston players came almost begrudgingly. Perhaps they were bolstered by the fact that six starters got hits off the Bombers righthander.

Besides his numbers, Yankees impressed by Masahiro Tanaka's unflappable nature

Jacoby Ellsbury gets much warmer reception that Johnny Damon in his return: ‘The fans were great’

Johnny Damon had warned Jacoby Ellsbury before the game Tuesday that he would find out just how vicious Red Sox fans could be for leaving Boston for the Yankees. After all, when Damon signed with the Bronx Bombers prior to the 2006 season, he was roundly booed and excoriated every time he set foot inside [...]

Ellsbury, Tanaka lead Yanks' romp at Fenway

Jacoby Ellsbury and Masahiro Tanaka were the unquestioned leading story lines heading into this series, and both helped the Yankees stick it to the Red Sox Tuesday night.

Rapid Reaction: Yankees 9, Red Sox 3

BOSTON -- It's rare that the two storylines you go into a ballgame with are the same two you come out with. But that's exactly how it worked out Tuesday. Jacoby Ellsbury's return to Fenway Park and Masahiro Tanaka's introduction to Yankees-Red Sox were the pregame storylines. Ellsbury's big night at the plate, and Tanaka's dominance -- with the exception of the fourth inning -- were the postgame storylines. Both had the glare of the spotlight on them and both came out shining.

Ellsbury shines in return to Fenway

It’s worth noting that the Red Sox have struggled to find a productive center fielder or get much out of their leadoff spot this season. In other words, they were well aware of what they’ve been missing long before Jacoby Ellsbury made his triumphant return to Fenway Park tonight. At various points booed and cheered, […]The post Ellsbury shines in return to Fenway appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Game 20: Yankees (11-8) @ Red Sox (9-11)

BOSTON -- This is the one you've been waiting for. Tanaka-Palooza and Jacoby-Mania rolled into one, the homecoming of prodigal son Jacoby Ellsbury, who seems to be in denial about what will happen at Fenway tonight, and the indoctrination into the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry of Masahiro Tanaka, who seems bemused by it all. And to make it even better, Ellsbury will be the game's first batter. As if a Yankees-Red Sox game didn't have enough storylines on its own.
