Foreign substances

When Yankees’ pitcher Michael Pineda was ejected last night at Fenway Park for openly using a “foreign substance” to get a better grip on the baseball, the Red Sox batter he was facing (Grady Sizemore) was openly wearing a pair of black batting gloves … presumably to get a better a grip on the bat. So why was only one player ejected by the umpire (and suspended 10 games by Major League Baseball)? Does this double-standard make any sense?
