UPDATE: Welp, that’s that. Pineda got two quick outs in the seventh but then Evan Longoria came up and roped a solid double to left field. After he did so he tipped his helmet to Pineda. The next batter, Brad Miller was quickly retired to end the inning.

Back to your normally-scheduled Monday afternoon.

2:52 PM: My act of posting this may very well jinx it, but let’s talk about it anyway: Yankees starter Michael Pineda has a perfect game going through six innings.

The Yankees are facing the Rays and the Rays have had no answer for Pineda yet. He’s got nine strikeouts and has thrown 74 pitches through the six frames.

Yankees lead 2-0. Updates as warranted.
