Michael Pineda returned to the Yankees rotation for the first time since he was suspended in May and he picked up right where he left off. Unfortunately, the Yankees bullpen imploded, resulting in the Yankees dropping the series and the game in a 5-3 loss at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland.
In Pineda’s first start since the beginning of the season, he gave up one run on five hits and struck out four. Dellin Betances gave up a run in 2.1 innings and Shawn Kelley pitched to two batters, giving up three runs on two hits.
— It’s an off day for the Yankees tomorrow but they’re off to Tampa Bay on Friday to begin the first game of a three game set. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.
