One thing Yankees-Red Sox series always bring is entertainment. And that’s exactly what tonight’s game featured.
With Michael Pineda on the mound, TV cameras captured the Yankees starting pitcher with a substance on his pitching hand, which appeared to be pine tar.

One final screengrab…
Certainly looks like pine tar to me. Whether it was to help grip the ball or not, looks like he globbed a healthy helping of it on there.
It’s not cheating if you don’t get caught. But Pineda did.
