New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays

New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays

As Martha typed away on her phone-definitely an iPhone, likely with a case that has a floral design on it, unless she hired someone to type tweets for her and (probably) also carry her (also probably) very big purse at all times, which I can definitely see-from her seat at Yankee Stadium, Michael Pineda was 20 outs into a ideal game against the Tampa Bay Rays and just seven outs away from baseball immortality.

Pineda now has a 3.97 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, 17 strikeouts, and a 1-1 record after 11 1/3 innings pitched in 2017.

Pineda did not allow any hard outs until Kevin Kiermaier flied out to left field for the second out of the seventh. Pineda will be on the mound Monday for the Yankees, who hope his second start goes better than Wednesday's start in Tampa Bay. Naturally, Stewart had to tweet about it.

NY Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was on the verge of throwing a no-hitter Monday. until Martha Stewart ruined it. Pineda is 2-5 with a 4.65 ERA and 86 strikeouts in his career against the Rays. He was 6-12 previous year with a 4.82 ERA, but he led the Yankees in strikeouts.

Pineda recovered by retiring by Derek Norris on a groundout and then exited to a loud standing ovation from the crowd.

Hazard sparkles as Chelsea sees off City
A slight deflection off Willy Caballero gave Chelsea an early lead in the 10th minute of the first half. If we do this, we win the title. "For this reason, we have to win 18 points".

For the Yankees, Aaron Judge, Chase Headley and Starlin Castro all homered in the win.

He ended the fifth inning by striking out Logan Morrison, and fans were on their feet when he struck out Tim Beckham to end the sixth.

NOTES: Yankees C Gary Sanchez (strained right biceps), was slated for an MRI exam on Monday.

The New York Yankees could use a win here to climb out of their slow 2-4 hole.
