The Yankees topped the Tribe 7-6 on Nick Green’s two-run single in the bottom of the ninth. Down 6-4, the Yanks scored three to win.

A few notes:

* Mike Mussina and Mariano Rivera will pitch in a minor-league game on Tuesday when the rest of the team goes to Virginia Tech. Jose Molina will catch them. Hideki Matsui also will stay behind and play in that game.

* Scott Patterson hasn’t allowed a run in six innings.

* Andy Pettitte is a go to start tomorrow.

* Joe Girardi said he invited Jim Leyritz into the clubhouse. “He just wanted to say hi to some old friends. He was in the area,” Girardi said. “He’s going through a very difficult situation. It’s tough.”

More comments from Girardi:

“I think he’s going through a hard time. I don’t think it’s a situation anyone wants to be in. … The way I look at it is that all of us have probably done things that we regret. Some might be considered worse than others. Obviously it’s a very sad story and situation, but I don’t believe you turn your back on people.

“He’s a friend to a lot of people and my heart goes out to the guy. He’s got three kids. Who knows what’s going to happen. My heart goes out to the lady. It’s not an easy situation.”
