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.
