Tonight was Andy Pettitte’s first loss at Tropicana Field since Sept. 16, 1998.

Matt Garza is pretty good. But he beat the Yankees with just a fastball tonight. The scoreboard said 92-93, but Johnny Damon said it looked faster.

Joe Girardi announced that Ian Kennedy would start Thursday. Kennedy and Kei Igawa were the only alternatives discussed. “I didn’t have a timetable (on Kennedy). We feel he’s ready to go. He’ll get another shot,” Girardi said. “We have belief in this kid.”

Because a player has to stay in the minors 10 days once he’s demoted (unless replacing somebody on the DL), Kennedy can’t be activated until Thursday. So he’ll fly here on Wednesday.
