Pineda's quality start not enough for Yankees in 4-0 loss to Blue Jays

Despite getting 6 consistent innings of one-run ball from a technical sophomore starter in Michael Pineda, the Yankees had their two-game win streak snapped in frustrating fashion today by the Blue Jays, 4-0. Throughout his outing here, Pineda really did look dominant, striking out 5 while also inducing 6 groundouts and 2 popouts, but in the end, he didn't get any run support, something you obviously need in order to do well in this league.

Anyway, the only real success stories for the Bombers today came from CF Jacoby Ellsbury, who went 3-for-5 with 3 singles, C Francisco Cervelli, who went 2-for-3 with a double and a single, and 3B Yangervis Solarte, who, for the third day in a row, collected multiple hits (going 2-for-3 with an HBP). Besides those three, unfortunately, nobody did anything meaningful in this one, so let's just forget it. It was nothing but 3 hours of failure.
