The Royals kept taking them, trying in vain to drive his pitch count up. When Yankees catcher Brian McCann looked up in the third inning, his right-hander had still thrown just 35 pitches. He knew then that Pineda was in a groove. Pineda wound up pitching into the seventh inning Monday night to win for the first time since April 16, helping New York beat the Kansas City Royals 8-1 for its fifth straight win. "Hes got so much cut on his fastball," McCann said. "I feel like he could literally throw it every pitch and be successful. When hes like that, hes as good as anybody." In the makeup of a game rained out in early June, Pineda (3-2) gave up a solo shot to Mike Moustakas leading off the third inning. But that was about it in Pinedas third game back from the disabled list. He struck out five without a walk. Jacoby Ellsbury drove in a run in the seventh inning with the 1,000th hit of his career, then added a two-run homer in the ninth. Derek Jeter added a pair of RBIs in his final scheduled trip to Kauffman Stadium, and Stephen Drew and Martin Prado had solo home runs. "Its nice when you have a lot of people contribute," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. James Shields (12-7) allowed six runs over 6 2-3 innings for Kansas City. "Weve been playing really, really good baseball the last month or so. Were definitely not going to let just one little game take care of us," Shields said. "Were going to move onto this next series and hopefully well win it." If youre willing to count the makeup against New York as a true series, it was the first time in their last 11 that the Royals have dropped one. "Its going to happen," outfielder Alex Gordon said. "Well bounce back. Well be OK." Jeter, who is retiring after the season, answered a standing ovation as he stepped to the plate in the third inning with a groundout to shortstop that gave New York a 1-0 lead. Moustakas tied the game with his 15th homer in the bottom half. Drew gave the Yankees the lead back in the fourth withh his home run, and they piled on four more runs off Shields in the seventh to put things out of reach. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Italia. . The last of the runs was scored by Ellsbury, who came home on a sacrifice fly by McCann. Ellsbury initially was ruled out at the plate, but the call was overturned after a 2-minute video review showed his left leg sliding just under catcher Salvador Perezs tag. That was plenty of support for Pineda, who had gone through the ringer since his previous win. He served a 10-game suspension for getting caught with pine tar on his neck in a game against Boston, then landed on the DL with shoulder trouble that kept him out until mid-August. Pineda was stuck with a pair of no-decisions in his first two starts back. "I feel pretty good," he said. "I feel like I have good power in my arm." BRONX BOMBERS The Yankees homered at least three times in a game for the seventh time this season, but it was the first time they had done it since July 9 at Cleveland. CRACKED SHIELDS Speaking of homers, Shields gave up at least two in a game for the seventh time this season, tied for second-most in the majors behind the Brewers Marco Estrada with nine. GORDOS GRAND Gordon played in his 1,000th game for the Royals, making the 30-year-old outfielder the 10th player in franchise history to reach the milestone. TRAINERS ROOM Royals: 1B Eric Hosmer was cleared to begin taking dry swings after sustaining a stress fracture in his right hand on July 20. "It feels good. Its healed up very nicely," Hosmer said. "Were ready to start the hitting progression." Yankees: 1B Mark Teixeira (left hamstring) and OF Brett Gardner (right ankle) were held out of the starting lineup. Girardi hopes both will be available Tuesday in Detroit. UP NEXT Royals: After taking three of four in Minnesota last week, the Royals open a three-game set against the Twins at home. LHP Danny Duffy is on the mound for Kansas City. Yankees: RHP Brandon McCarthy makes his ninth start with the Yankees to open a three-game series in Detroit, one of the clubs theyre chasing in the AL wild-card race. ' ' '
