Game 32. Pineda K’s 16 in Yanks’ 6-2 win.


Sorry for the late post. I had some computer maintenance to do which delayed this by one day. No minor league report then for Sunday’s games, but I can tell you that in AA, Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez homered and had good days (to support Luis Severino, who did NOT have a good outing).

Now for Sunday’s Yankee game:

In June of 1978, Ron Guidry struck out 18 Angels to set the Yankees’ record for most strikeouts in a game.

On Sunday, Michael Pineda gave that record a run for its money. Pineda had to be pulled after seven innings with his pitch count at 111, but he struck out 16 in those seven innings. Who knows what might have happened.

Pineda has had shoulder issues in the past, and it was prudent that manager Girardi pull him. But what a dominating performance. Pineda ties David Wells and David Cone for second place in Yankees’ history with his 16 K. He ties Cone for the most in a game by a righty pitcher. Dellin Betances’ 2 K gave the Yanks a total of 18 for the game, tying the team record which was previously accomplished twice—a combined effort, and Guidry’s solo outing.

Remarkably, Pineda walked no one in his dominant effort. For the season so far, he has 54 K and just 3 walks—an 18:1 ratio.

Pineda (W, 5-0, 2.72) 7 IP, 1 R, 6 H, 0 walks and 16 K.
Rogers 1/3 IP, 1 R, 2 H, 0 walks and 0 K. 3.32.
Betances 1 2/3 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks and 2 K. 0.00.

In the game, Carlos Beltran hit his first HR of the season, and first in some 160 AB. It was a long time between #373 and #374 (which tied Rocky Colavito all-time). Brian McCann also homered (4).

Didi Gregorious had 2 hits and 2 RBI.
