Pettitte strikes out nine in eight shutout innings

Andy Pettitte’s brilliance on Friday night spared the Yankees offense from being blamed for yet another loss due to their inability to hit with runners in scoring position. In just his second start with the team since coming back from retirement, the 39-year-old left-hander was as sharp as he’s ever been, holding the Cincinnati Reds scoreless through eight innings while striking out nine en route to a 4-0 win.

The Yankees once again failed to register a hit with runners in scoring position, but a solo home run from Robinson Cano and a two-run shot from Raul Ibanez in the bottom of the eighth gave the Yankees a little cushion.
