But just as Martha hit "Tweet" and turned her thoughts to the gardenias she'd like to plant along the walkway of her house in Maine, Rays third baseman Evan Longoria ripped a double into leftfield to break up Pineda's ideal game.

Pineda has struck out nine and started 15 of 18 batters with strikes, throwing 52 of 74 pitches for strikes.

In Pineda's first start of the season last week, also against the Rays, Pineda gave up four runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings. There's no debating Pineda's upside, but inconsistency remains an issue.
