Evan Longoria, long a Yankee-killer in his career, broke up the bid for a flawless game with two outs in the seventh, lining a hanging first-pitch slider - one of the few misplaced pitches of the 93 Pineda threw - down the leftfield line for a double. He had his slider working overtime against the Rays' batters and they (for the most part) couldn't do anything with it. Longoria's double happened to be off a slider that stayed up in the zone, but Pineda's other sliders? He allowed just two hits and one run in 7.2 innings while striking out 11.
According to CBS Sports, New York's Aaron Judge hit a game tying home run, and Starlin Castro's RBI single helped spark a four-run ninth inning for the Yankees as they completed their 7-3 comeback victory against the Baltimore Orioles. It was a brilliant outing, especially when you consider that Pineda gave up four runs over 3 2/3 innings against the Rays in his season debut last week. He pitched the Gamecocks to an 8-0 win in an elimination game against the Tar Heels who came in with a vaunted offensive attack.
He was 3-for-9 with a home run last week against the Yankees, is a career.278 hitter against NY and has 15 home runs at the current Yankee Stadium. LHP Blake Snell (0-1) will pitch for the Rays.
"He was a four-pitch mix", the manager said.
He began this season by allowing five runs, three hits and five walks in 6 2/3 innings in a 5-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.

The Yankees Michael Pineda had a flawless game going in the 7th, and Martha thought that was pretty cool, so she shared the state of affairs on Twitter. NY also altered its rotation and announced LHP Jordon Montgomery will start Wednesday while RHP Luis Severino, RHP Masahiro Tanaka and LHP CC Sabathia will be pushed back an extra day.
The last time a Yankees pitcher threw a no-hitter in April was 100 years ago when George Mogridge delivered the first no-no in Fenway Park history against the Boston Red Sox in 1917.
"He's doing good. He's doing fine", manager Bruce Bochy said.
Montgomery has spent a little over three seasons in the Yankees minor league system, spending time at all six levels before finally being called up. He had a 3.20 ERA at the end of the Spring, which included pitching four hit-less innings during the Spring Training no-hitter against the Detroit Tigers.
