A little less than two weeks after a mysterious substance on the hand of New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda went unchecked in a dominant win over Boston, the RedSox manager John Farrell didn't leave things to chance this time around. Complaining to the umpires in the second inning that there was a dark substance on the neck of Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda.

After struggling in the first inning with command of his pitching, Pineda was decidedly better in the second, forcing two fly-outs. It looks as if Pineda will be facing a suspension from the league office as the last two pitchers caught using pine tar were Brendan Donnelly and Joel Peralta and they were suspended for 10 and 8 games respectively.
