New York Teams

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Here was Sandy Alderson's sobering language with respect to the trade deadline: "What I've said before is that there is no single acquisition, at least that I can see, that's going to change what's transpired over the last two months. It's going to have to come from within. There may be things that we can do that can improve the team. We've done various things over the last couple of months to try to improve the team. Certainly we'll be monitoring the market. But I don't believe right now that an acquisition is going to make a big difference for us. We get Juan Lagares back, [Jose] Reyes makes a contribution, who knows where little marginal improvements -- hitting with men in scoring position across the board -- those are the kinds of things that are going to make a difference over the next three months."

A great performance comes to naught for Michael Pineda, who struck out 12 and allowed just two hits in 6 innings today against the Texas Rangers. But one of those hits, a home run by Shin-Soo Choo on the fourth pitch of the game, forced Pineda to settle for a no decision as the Yankees offense could only manage one run of its own on Didi Gregorius' solo HR in the fifth. The game is tied at 1 in the bottom of the ninth
