Last week the Yankees had been on a small slide losing three games in a row. They "needed" a win against one of the better teams in baseball, the Tigers. Andy Pettitte pitched a gem going 8 innings and never really giving the Tigers a chance to win. His next turn around the rotation came yesterday. Again, the Yankees had lose two straight and were on the verge of being swept by the Angels. Pettitte again delivered last night with 7 innings of one run ball. He`s now won five straight games. His ERA for the season is 3.69. His K/BB is 2.07 and he now has 114 SO's. His GB% is at about 50% to. He`s also eaten up 173.0 IP with an FIP of 3.60. He`s been arguably the Yankees ace this season, even better than Wang. He has a players option for next year and if he doesn't use it he`ll be missed.
