Yankees-Red Sox Preview

(AP) -- As the New York Yankees look to avoid the uncertainty of a wild-card game, Michael Pineda believes he's one of the veterans who needs to step up in September.

After missing out on a chance to gain ground in the AL East, the visiting Yankees hope the right-hander can move past his recent struggles Tuesday night against the rival Boston Red Sox.

New York (72-58) holds a four-game lead on the AL's first wild-card spot, though it would much rather overtake first-place Toronto than play in a one-game playoff.
