The right-hander was thrown out in the second inning when plate umpire Gerry Davis found a shiny substance on the right side of Pineda’s neck after Red Sox manager John Farrell asked him to check. Pineda walked from the mound without protest.

John Lackey (3-2) allowed one run and seven hits in eight innings with 11 strikeouts and no walks. Koji Uehara struck out three in the ninth in a non-save situation.

Mike Napoli had three hits and Boston scored two runs in the first and two more in the third. The Yankeesscored on Alfonso Soriano’s sacrifice fly in the sixth.
