UPDATE, 10:08 p.m.: It’s 7-1 Yankees with Pettitte – hearing his named chanted as he goes into the wind – pitching to Chase Utley. Let’s get a new thread going.

UPDATE, 10:11 p.m.: Girardi is staying with Pettitte after Ryan Howard hits a first-row homer. It’s 7-3 now.

UPDATE, 10:25 p.m.: Nice moment for Pettitte when he came out of the game. Big ovation, tip of the cap and a wave. If this is it for Pettitte, it’s a hell of a way to go out. He could be the clinching pitcher for this year’s AL East title, ALDS, ALCS and World Series. Not bad.

UPDATE, 10:39 p.m.: Think Joba is amped up? He just threw one that one-hopped the backstop.

UPDATE, 10:45 p.m.: Damaso Marte has been great since the first round but there’s no spot bigger than this one. Two on, two out, Utley up with one swing to make it a one-run game.

UPDATE 10:51 p.m.: Huge, huge strikeout for Marte. Six outs to go. Marte for Howard and then go to Mo?

UPDATE, 10:53 p.m.: Best “God Bless America” of the year from Kelli O’Hara. The 50,315 fans here loved it.

UPDATE, 11:15 p.m.: Nothing better than the bars of “Enter Sandman” on a cold night with flashbulbs popping everywhere. I’ve got to finish up about 15 things for the newspaper but don’t go anywhere. The Yankees are five outs away.
