NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Baseball president Bob DuPuy has
denied the formal protest filed by the New York Yankees after a disputed loss to the Florida Marlins.

New York manager Joe Girardi protested Sunday's 6-5 defeat at Florida because of a Marlins substitution mix-up.

In the top of the eighth inning, Chris Coghlan started in left after manager Fredi Gonzalez had removed him in a double switch. Alejandro De Aza batted for pitcher Renyel Pinto in the seventh and was supposed to take over in left, but never ran on the field.

Leo Nunez threw a pitch, then Girardi protested. Coghlan was removed, Jeremy Hermida went to left and the Yankees protested,
trailing 6-3 at the time.

Girardi thought Nunez should have been ruled out of the game.
