NEW YORK -- This much is clear: Michael Pineda had a dark substance smudged on his pitching hand during his first win for the New York Yankees. Malik Jefferson Bengals Jersey . Pine tar or dirt? We might never know. Pineda took a two-hit shutout into the seventh inning, and Jacoby Ellsbury hit an RBI single off old roommate Clay Buchholz in his first game against the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees 4-1 victory Thursday night left a bit of a mystery: Were Pinedas pitches plain old nasty, or was something more sinister involved? "Its dirt," Pineda said. "Between the innings, Im sweating too much, my hand. Im putting dirt -- Im grasping the dirt. ... Im not using pine tar." Ellsbury drew all the pregame attention after switching sides in the rivalry during the off-season. But it was the dark brown, seemingly tacky substance on the lower palm of Pinedas right hand that became the focus. Close-up camera shots showed Pineda (1-1) pitching during the early innings with something on his hand, and there was speculation it was pine tar to help him get a better grip on a chilly night. The game was never stopped for an umpire to examine him, and it whatever it was, it was gone by the fifth. "I became aware of it in the fourth inning through the video that someone had seen," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "And then, when he came back out for the fifth inning, it looked, based on where it was told to me it was located, it looked like the palm of his right hand was clean." Buchholz and fellow Red Sox ace Jon Lester both attracted questions last year about substances they had on the mound, but nothing came of them. "The Red Sox didnt bring it to our attention, so theres nothing we can do about it," umpire crew chief Brian ONora said. "If they bring it to our attention, then youve got to do something." Yankees manager Joe Girardi essentially repeated the same answer five times during his postgame news conference. "I never saw it. Theres nothing really for me to talk about," he said. Making his first Yankee Stadium start 27 months after he was acquired from Seattle, Pineda appeared completely recovered from the shoulder surgery that sidelined him for two years. Throwing at up to 95 mph, he allowed four hits, struck out seven and walked two. Brian McCann ended an 0-for-14 slide with a run-scoring single that put the Yankees ahead during a two-run fourth that also included a run-scoring double-play grounder by Alfonso Soriano. Making just his third big league start after 554 games in the minor leagues, 27-year-old infielder Dean Anna homered as New York made it 4-0 in the fifth. Anna opened spring training wearing No. 93 after six minor league seasons with San Diego, which traded him to New York in November. Now wearing a more respectable No. 45, he was greeted after the homer by Yankees captain Derek Jeter, who gave him a high-five. Anna had received more than 100 emails and texts by the time the game ended, and he even got the ball back. "Words cant explain it. Honestly, they really cant. All the history with these two teams," Anna said. This was slightly different than the way he dreamed it would happen. "In Wrigley Field, actually," he said. "But Yankee Stadium against the Red Sox I think is pretty good, too." After spending nine years in the Red Sox organization and winning World Series titles in 2007 and last year, Ellsbury left for a $153 million, seven-year contract with the Yankees. And his first game put him at the plate against Buchholz (0-1), his roommate at Lowell of the New York-Penn League in their first summer of professional ball. On a 1-for-4 night, Ellsbury reached on third baseman Jonathan Herreras fielding error and scored the games first run in the fourth and singled sharply to left to drive in a run in the fifth. Daniel Nava led off the seventh with a home run into the second deck in right, and Xander Bogaerts single chased Pineda. With David Robertson on the disabled list and Shawn Kelley and Adam Warren unavailable after pitching Wednesday, the Yankees scrambled their bullpen. Cesar Cabral and David Phelps retired Bostons last nine batters -- striking out five -- and Phelps got seven outs for his first career save. "I just figured as long as I was keeping guys off base, they were going to let me go," Phelps said. "Any time you can get a first, as long as its a good first, is always exciting." NOTES: Jeter went 2 for 4 with a double, raising his average to .290. ... The Yankees employed an unusual shift with Grady Sizemore up: Jeter remained at shortstop and rookie Yangervis Solarte moved from third to the first-base side of second; Sizemore grounded out to Solarte in the third. ... CC Sabathia (1-1) is slated to face Lester (0-2) in Fridays second game of the four-game series. Billy Price Bengals Jersey .C. - The Panthers will be without starting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei for Saturday nights NFC divisional playoff game against Seattle after undergoing surgery Wednesday to repair a broken bone in his foot. Billy Price Jersey .C. - Alberta prop Andrew Tiedemann will captain Canada against Uruguay on Friday, the opening day of competition at the IRB Americas Rugby Championship. http://www.officialbengalsprofanatics.com/Black-Friday-Sam-Hubbard-Jersey/ . The win puts Arsenal four points clear of Everton in fourth place with two games to play in the Premier League, a position which would qualify the club for Europes top competition for the 17th straight year.Our hit and miss list of the 2015 NFL Draft created plenty of debate, with some feeling we were a little unfair not to put Marcus Peters (8 INT) on the list, as well as not giving Nelson Aghlohor his due as the NFLs biggest first-round miss. Its about looking forward not back, so the View From America has his Top 10 non-first round rookies for 2015... 1) Tyler Lockett (3rd round, Seattle) Tyler Lockett logged over 1,000 yards and 2 TDs in combined punt and kick returns There wasnt a bigger playmaker for the Seahawks last season, as Lockett emerged not only as one of the nastiest receiving threats in the country (664 yards, 6 TDs), but also logging over 1,000 yards and 2 TDs in combined punt and kick returns. He was named an All-Pro in his first season. Mind you, those who know anything about college football would have raised their eyebrows that he wasnt taken earlier than the third round, too. 2) Thomas Rawls (undrafted, Seattle)Two of Pete Carrolls biggest successes from the 2015 Draft were Lockett and Rawls. Rawls - who had 830 yards, 4 TDs and led the league with 5.6 yards per rushing attempt - was sensational in picking up where Marshawn Lynch left. Theres a new beast in town, people.3) Stefon Diggs (5th round, Minnesota) Wide receiver Stefon Diggs has been quite a find for the Vikings 720 yards, 4 TDs, - including a red-hot start to the year, where he had 95+ yards in four straight games. After corners and safeties began to stop him, the production waned, but he was still a remarkable threat. He was taken in the 5th round pick, but produced more than a lot of first rounders.4) Ronald Darby (2nd round, Buffalo) Ronald Darby has starred at cornerback for the Bills Darby - who was a star at Florida State - had a heck of a year at cornerback for the Bills, with 21 passes defended (5th best in the NFL) and made 68 tackles. He had 2 interceptions (2nd on the team), too. The worrying thing for opposition quarterbacks is that hell only get better. Darby Island, anybody? 2015 Draft: Hits & Misses Who were 2015s draft success stories 5) Lael Collins (undrafted, Dallas)Listen, we know why he wasnt drafted [there was a shooting in New Orleans for which he was not a suspect but he was questioned by police on the eve of the draft], and when Jerry Jones finally took him on, Collins - who was expected to be a first rounder - started 11 games for Dallas at offensive tackle, and looks an easy part of the best offensive line in the NFL.6) Devin Funchess (2nd round, Carolina) Cam Newwton celebrates a TD with Devin Funchess A lot of people used the words overweight to describe the receiver, and looked at the NFL Combine as a reason why the former Michigan man was not a first rounder. Malik Jefferson Jersey. But Carolina knew that he had first round hands, and 473 yards - the fifth best for a rookie in the history of the Panthers - and 5 TDs later, he became one of Cam Newtons prime receivers en route to a Super Bowl.7) Haouli Kikaha (2nd round, New Orleans) Hauoli Kikaha of the New Orleans Saints put up some great numbers in his rookie season We nearly put in Malcolm Brown, the Patriots nose tackle out of Alabama, but looking at it, Kikaha was pretty immense - especially considering the terrible defence he had to play with week in, week out. The defensive ends numbers - 52 tackles, 4 sacks and 4 forced fumbles - were great. His forced fumbles number ranked amongst the best in the league.Cool Landon Collins (2nd round, New York Giants)The first pick of the 2nd round was blistering in his hard-hitting tackling….exactly what he was like at Alabama. Collins had 80 tackles and started all 16 games for the New York Giants who - on reflection - werent that far away from making a play-off game. Mind you, thats how bad the NFC East was! Making sense of the Combine What is the NFL Combine all about? 9) T.J. Yeldon (2nd round, Jacksonville Jaguars) We remember how good Yeldon was at Alabama, and we were hoping for the same in Jacksonville, where he was drafted. He was quick, elusive and scary fast playing against some of the best defences in the country in the SEC, but the NFL guys obviously didnt think he was as good as a Todd Gurley and, er, Melvin Gordon. Yeldon immediately became the Jags starting running back, and put up 742 yards with 2 TDs. With a better offensive line, we think he could have run for 1,000.10) Jamison Crowder (4th round, Washington) - 600 yards, 2 TDs Anyone who plays for Dukes football team isnt exactly going to be the biggest name on the draft, so it was hardly surprising that Crowder was picked in the latter rounds. But to say he proved himself was an understatement, as he grabbed 600 yards receiving and 2 TDs on 59 receptions. Certain teams in the NFC East would have loved a rookie with those stats.Purposely left out: Kwon Alexander (2nd round, Tampa Bay Buccaneers) Lets not get it wrong: Alexanders 93 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions were exceptionally impressive. He was on track for over 100 tackles and maybe more sacks and interceptions, until he was handed a four-game suspension for using performance enhancing drugs. Alexander was suspended for the last three games of the season and will be out for the 2017 season opener. And you might say that his actions cost the team a wild card place, too (The Bucs finished 0-3 in his absence). Anyway, lets hope he learns, because hes one talented kid.
