Game 21: New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox, Pineda vs. Lackey

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

What was on his hand anyway? He didn't need it to dominate the Cubs last week, but then again, that's the Cubs.

Michael Pineda's quest to re-establish himself as one of the elite young starters in the game continues tonight in the most hostile environment he's probably ever faced.

The Yankees lineup, for their part, will try to keep John Lackey's lousy 2014 going. They blitzed him for 10 hits (4 homers) in 5.2 IP in New York, and then he went out and gave up 6 runs to the Orioles in only 5.1IP.
