Michael Pineda Ejected Second Time Around for Pine Tar
New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda learned that lightning does not strike twice in the same place.
On April 10 against the Boston Red Sox, he pitched 7 innings but allegedly had pine tar on the back of his hand,which the Sox didn't see until after that 4-1 loss by highlights.
In the bottom of the second in Wednesday night's game,manager John Farrell noticed a substance on Pineda's neck and had umpires stop action to check it out.
Sure enough, pine tar was discovered and Pineda was ejected.
It's not set on how Major League Baseball will deal with Pineda's case.
