Michael Pineda strikes out nine over 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball, taking a no-hitter into the 7th inning against the Marlins on June 17, 2015 at Yankee Stadium

Game 65 | 35-30, 2nd : Big Mike, The Stopper. Pineda took a no-hitter into the 7th inning and the video replay system saved the Yankees’ bacon in the 8th, as New York edged Miami in their 2-game series opener. After two terrible offensive performances in Miami, and another one tonight in the The Bronx, it was the pitching that needed to stop the 2-game skid, and the pitching did.

Here’s the box score, full recap, and video highlights.

Yankees 2, Marlins 1

  • Dellin Betances   The 6’8″ righty recorded his 4th save of the season, his second for 5 outs.
  • Brian McCann   Nice athleticism leaping to haul in Garrett Jones high throw to the plate in the 8th inning, and making the tag on Miami’s Adeiny Hechavarria — who initially looked safe for the game-tying run, but television replays showed otherwise. Given how late it was in game, it was a no-brainer for manager Joe Girardi to challenge, and the process worked. As much as the classic manager vs umpire dustups are missed, have to admit I’m diggin’ the replay rule. Not crazy about losing the right to challenge again after a failed one, that aspect needs some work, but at least the right calls are ultimately made.

“It’s a good play by Brian; a quick tag, and thank goodness for review.” ‐ Joe Girardi  (h/t: Joe Frisaro and Bryan Hoch / MLB.com)
