BOSTON — The pine tar glistened on Michael Pineda’s neck, improving his grip and inviting trouble.
He got both.
The Yankees’ right-hander spoke quietly after being ejected in the second inning of the Red Sox’ 5-1 win over New York on Wednesday night. And less than two weeks after appearing to get away with using a foreign substance in another game against Boston, he vowed never to do it again.
“I’ll learn from this mistake,” a contrite Pineda said. “It won’t happen again.”
Pineda said he had trouble gripping the ball on the cool evening when he allowed two runs in the first inning. So before he took the mound for the second, he said, he rubbed pine tar on the right side of his neck.
“I don’t feel the ball,” he said. “I don’t want to hit anybody.”

Bruins defense holding Red Wings to historic lows PDF Print E-mail

DETROIT — The Boston Bruins have held the Detroit Red Wings to historically poor offensive production.
With two goals through three games, the Red Wings are off to their worst three-game start in any playoff series since getting shut out in the first three games of the 1945 Stanley Cup finals.
Boston goalie Tuukka Rask, backchecking forwards and shot-blocking defensemen have had a lot to do with that.
Detroit coach Mike Babcock, though, suggested his team has made it easier on Rask by failing to get players close to him to perhaps redirect pucks past him.
“He’s a world-class goalie, skates great,” Babcock said. “Looks great in warmups — that’s where he’s getting his most shots.”

CLEVELAND — With seven games still left this month, Jason Kipnis has already surpassed his statistics from last April.
That wasn’t hard to do.
“I set the bar so low,” he said.
Kipnis drove in Nick Swisher from first base with a two-out double in the seventh inning, sending the Cleveland Indians to a 5-3 win over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night.
Kipnis, who batted just .200 with one homer and four RBIs in the season’s first month in 2013, ripped his double off Kelvin Herrera (0-1) into the gap in right-center, deep enough to easily score Swisher, who reached on a two-out single.

COLUMBUS — In the dressing room after Brandon Dubinsky’s late goal forced overtime, Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nick Foligno half-jokingly said he’d get the winner.
Then he did it.
Dubinsky scored with 22.5 seconds left in regulation and Foligno’s wrist shot just inside the blue line 2:49 into the extra session — from right over the top of the Stanley Cup painted under the ice — gave the upstart Columbus Blue Jackets a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night.
Asked if he had called the goal, Foligno laughed.
“I might have,” he said with a wide grin. “I didn’t actually think it would work out, but it ended up working. I’m going to thank my lucky stars.”

Bullpen loses lead, Tigers fall to White Sox PDF Print E-mail

DETROIT — Ian Krol was concerned about a possible walk with the bases loaded, so he grooved a pitch to Marcus Semien.
“As it turned out, walking him would have been a much better move,” Krol said.
Semien’s seventh-inning grand slam lifted the Chicago White Sox over the Detroit Tigers 6-4 Wednesday night. Detroit starter Drew Smyly allowed two runs in six innings, but Evan Reed gave up two singles and a walk, and Krol allowed the home run to Semien.
Andre Rienzo (1-0) gave up four runs in the fourth inning, but otherwise kept the Tigers quiet in his first start this season. He allowed five hits and two walks in 6 1-3 innings, striking out three.
Matt Lindstrom pitched the ninth for his third save, but it wasn’t easy. He allowed a single, a walk and two deep flyouts before retiring Alex Avila on a line drive to first with runners on second and third.
