Only three pitchers have ever won 200 games with the Yankees: Whitey Ford, Red Ruffing and now Andy Pettitte. The veteran lefty pitched another gem tonight, shutting down the only other team he’s ever played for in a 4-3 Yankees win against the Astros. At one point Pettitte retired 16 of 17 batters, and only two of the three Houston runs were earned. Francisco Cervelli and Mark Teixeira had RBI singles, and Mariano Rivera closed it out for his 15th save. Of those 200 Pettitte victories, 67 have been saved by Rivera.
