Red Sox talk around Pineda controversy

NEW YORK — The Red Sox may have lost 4-1 to the Yankees Thursday night ‘€“ continuing their early-season offensive struggles — but that’€™s not what dominated the clubhouse questioning following the game.

On most everybody’€™s mind post-game, however, were thoughts regarding the substance (thought to be pine tar) on the pitching hand of Yankees starter Michael Pineda.

Pineda explained after his six-inning, one-run outing that the substance was dirt, claiming he doesn’€™t use pine tar. But images of the pitching hand through the first four innings makes the pitcher’€™s explanation hard to believe. (“€œWas he pitching or hitting?” asked one...

Pineda, Yanks claim controversial win over Sox

NEW YORK — Michael Pineda pitched very, very well Thursday night. How he did it, however, was a major topic of conversation throughout what turned into a 4-1 Yankees win over the Red Sox.

Pineda finished his six-innign outing allowing just one run on four hits, striking out seven and walking two. But while the righty was getting the Red Sox to chase slider after slider, talk heated up about what appeared to be a significant amount of pine tar on his the base of his pitching hand.

Farrell: Sizemore switch to LF not permanent

NEW YORK — Prior to his team’€™s series-opening game against the Yankees Thursday night, John Farrell explained why Grady Sizemore had been pushed over to left field, with Jackie Bradley Jr. manning center.

Farrell said the move had more to do with the venue then anything else.

“With the ground that’s going to be covered here in Yankee Stadium is almost the reverse of what we deal with at Fenway,” he said. “To keep Jackie in center field and Grady over in left is for that particular reason — to cover the vast space that’s on...

Union ends BC's season in Frozen Four

PHILADELPHIA — Trailing 3-2 with a little more than 13 minutes to go in Thursday’s national semifinal, Boston College got a golden chance to tie the game. Just 18 seconds after Union had taken the lead, Dutchmen forward Matt Hatch was ejected from the game for hitting Michael Sit from behind, giving BC a five-minute power play.

But the Eagles couldn’t take advantage. They were sloppy entering the zone and struggled to find lanes, as their passes and shots were consistently met by Union sticks and legs. At one point, they even wound up icing the puck. They finally got a golden opportunity with 20 seconds left on the power play, but Union goalie Colin Stevens (34 saves) robbed Teddy Doherty on a rebound chance.

If the five-minute kill took the wind out of BC’s sails, what happened next capsized...
