Pineda Pitches Yanks to Win
TORONTO (AP) — Mark Teixeira hit a two-run homer, Michael Pineda matched his career high with eight shutout innings and the New York Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 on Tuesday night.
Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits, stole two bases and scored twice as the AL East leaders improved to 11-4 away from home, the best road record in the league.
New York has gone 14-4 since a 3-6 start.
Pineda (4-0) allowed five hits and struck out six to win his fourth straight road start, a streak that began in Boston last September. The right-hander has road wins over all four division opponents in that span.
Russell Martin's double gave Toronto runners at second and third with two outs in the third, but Pineda got Edwin Encarnacion to fly out. That was the only inning in which Pineda allowed multiple runners.
