Yankees: Girardi's "Curiosity" Sends Montgomery To Yankee Stadium

Yankees: Girardi's

Pineda flirted with a ideal game and didn't allow his first baserunner until Evan Longoria doubled with two outs in the seventh. 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?

The Michael Pineda pitching on the mound at Yankee Stadium on Monday afternoon is the one the Yankees and their fans have been waiting to see since he was traded to the club in 2012. He was 6-12 a year ago with a 4.82 ERA, but he led the Yankees in strikeouts.

Aaron Judge hit the game-tying home run in the eighth inning, and Starlin Castro lined the tiebreaking single in the ninth after two more walks.

Pineda's near-perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays, who saw no hits until the seventh inning, was the subject of an ill-fated tweet by the television chef.

Montgomery has earned the fifth starter's job in the New York Yankees' rotation and is scheduled to make his major league debut on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Former South Carolina star Jordan Montgomery is set to make his Major League Baseball debut.

The Yankees still went on to win the game - but the team's beloved supporters weren't amused.

The Yankees announced on Monday that the 24-year-old Montgomery, a standout performer for Sumter High School, the American Legion Sumter P-15's and the University of SC, had won the role as the team's fifth starter.

"He has a four-pitch mix, with a very good downhill angle, and he's 6-foot-6 and lefty", Girardi said.

"It was the most composed that I've seen him on the mound in a long time", NY catcher Austin Romine said.

Actually, the Yankees first baseman called it weird - twice - before Wednesday's game against the Rays at Yankee Stadium. In those three years he pitched on a College World Series Final team and a Super Regional team, compiling a 20-7 record, 2.87 ERA and 212 strikeouts in 253 and two-thirds career innings. "I had just guessed slider on that pitch, and he made a mistake". Verlander gave up an unearned run, 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4 over 7 innings. "His stuff is really good - he's able to use his breaking ball extremely well, and when he locates his fastball it's good - and he has different ways he can get you out".
