In his first Major League start since mid-July, Andy Pettitte gave the Yankees six strong innings, but the Orioles rallied from a two-run deficit to beat the Yankees 4-3 in extra innings. Pettitte left the Yankees with a 3-1 lead after six, but the Orioles got a run in the eighth, tied it off Mariano Rivera in the ninth and won on Ty Wigginton’s double in the 11th. The Yankees stranded 12 base runners and squandered a bases-loaded opportunity in the final inning.
