Girardi Benches Pineda in the middle of a 2-hitter

I wish this were a typo.   I wish this surprised me.  But it doesn’t.  Clueless Joe Girardi has done it again.

He watches his pitcher throw a gem, and then, as usual, he benches him in the middle of it.     After checking the stats, I see that NO OTHER MANAGER in MLB this season has benched a pitcher in the middle of a two-hitter.
