How’s that for a No. 4 starter?
Andy Pettitte dominated the Royals, dropping his curveball over the plate time after time to lift the Yankees to a 4-1 victory.
“We throw a very good starter out there every night,” Joe Girardi said.
Meanwhile, did you notice how those shadows changed the game? The teams were 5 for 34 with 16 strikeouts over the final five innings. That 4-1 lead was about as secure as it gets.
“It was impossible to hit,” Johnny Damon said. “I’m glad we had the lead.”
The bullpen over the last three games: 10 innings 1 hit, 0 runs, 3 walks, 12 strikeouts.
