Yankees At Mariners, Game 50
Pineda vs Burnett, 7:10 pm.
Pineda has been unbelievably good so far, but tonight, I’d say he faces his first real test. The Yankees can hit, and their line-up is full of left-handed thumpers. Can he continue to pound first pitch fastballs over the plate against a bunch of good hitters? How will he avoid falling behind patient hitters who might not chase his breaking ball?
If PIneda dominates the Yankees tonight, it will be his coming out party, and you can expect him to get plenty of attention next week if he overcomes the test. It should be an interesting night.
