Andy Pettitte’s final line today:
1 earned run
83 pitches / 63 strikes
Of the seven hits, one was a broken-bat double and two others infield singles. There also was a wounded-duck flare over the first baseman’s head.
Pettitte said he felt fine. He will face the Blue Jays on Monday and wants to get to 100 pitches. Then he’ll face the Cubs at the Stadium on April 4. After ending last season with a shoulder injury he said it has not cropped up this spring.
Pettitte has looked good all spring. Having him as a No. 4 starter certainly says a lot about the depth if the rotation.
Damon Sublett can really hit. They had him at second base. These games are a little hard to judge. There were 10 players in the lineup as they use two DHs and the defense is just brutal. You have to go more on watching the approach a player has at the plate rather than the results at times.
