Pettitte does it again

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jun 05, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Russell Martin’s grand slam was the biggest blow of the game, but it was Andy Pettitte who got the standing ovation, delivering 7.1 scoreless innings in a 7-0 Yankees win against the first-place Rays tonight at Yankee Stadium. Pettitte struck out 10 for the 14th time in his career, reaching double digit strikeouts in the Bronx for the first time since 2003. An error gave the Yankees their first two runs of the game, but they earned a bigger lead when Martin hit his fifth home run in the fourth inning. The grand slam was the Yankees fourth of the season. Freddy Garcia finished off the shutout, but the night belonged to Pettitte.

    Trisha,

    I’d prefer that Boston would win. I’m more interested in NYYs taking back first place this week than Boston losing.

  3. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 5th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

    Certainly I understand that. However, I can’t get there. I don’t mind waiting a little longer since I know it’s coming. I’d prefer to see the Sux rubbed into dust by the time it happens.

    MG….Great story and Jim Gentile was a heck of a ballplayer with a huge strike zone for Whitey to exploit…
    ——————
    Pat M, Whitey used to drop down and throw almost side arm curveballs to Gentile and other lefthanded batters, they would be in the dugout by the time the pitch crossed home plate.

    GB7, Whitey had a good fastball even after ’57, he could spot it just where he wanted and it had lots of late action (maybe helped just a little by Ellie Howard doctoring the ball). The great thing about Whitey was that he could win with whatever he had that day, whether it was just his fastball or a combination of junk-either way he consistently got the job done.

    Andy was just spectacular tonight, did the Rays get even a single good swing against him in 7+ innings?

    oh i was thinking league conference

  13. Nilsson June 5th, 2012 at 10:09 pm

    Hard to believe Cliff Lee has no wins so far. It’s a good thing he went to the team that’s “getting younger’”. Heh.

  14. GreenBeret7 June 5th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    MG,

    Ford told a get story about scuffing/cutting baseballs. Ellie Howard had sharpened the buckles on his shinguards. He had the ball cut perfectly for Ford and he said he thew a pitch that broke down and in about a foot to Killabrew for a strikeout. They were throwing the ball around the infield and Pepitone noticed the cut and tossed the the ball into the stands. Howard got a new ball and rubbed it up and walked out to the mound and called the infield in. Pepitone was a rookie, and he told Pepitone if he ever threw another ball with a cut on it into the stands again, he’d beat the crap out of him.

  15. GreenBeret7 June 5th, 2012 at 10:14 pm

    I think the grounder to Jeter by Upton was the hardest ball hit off of Pettitte tonight.

  16. GreenBeret7 June 5th, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    Charleston wins 10-3.

    As much as I hate Boston, no way am I cheering for LeBron’s team. He screwed the Knicks and all us fans.

  19. Nick in SF June 5th, 2012 at 10:22 pm

    Buck is displeased.

  20. MG June 5th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Great story, GB…

  21. Pat M. June 5th, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    GB……Great story, and Ellie Howard was a solid big leaguer who could hit 400 foot doubles to the gap at the Stadium……He was a big guy with huge hands

  22. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 5th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    That would only make an extra innings loss even sweeter. I love to see the Suxian kidlet crowd go ballistic, only to have the jaws of defeat finally snatch what appeared to be sure victory.

    Fly Pegasus, fly!

    .139 Endy Chavez brings home the 8th run for the O’s.

  25. yanks 27 June 5th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    I prefer Boston (potentially) losing this way with Aceves blowing it after the big HR by Salty to tie it

  26. GreenBeret7 June 5th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    Scranton wins 12-8. Mitchell was tagged for 2 three run homers. Russell Branyon had 2 three run homers of his own.

  27. m June 5th, 2012 at 10:38 pm

    Ric Reilly has a column today about how it’s time to stophating on LeBron because he’s a “selfless hoops genius”.

    He may well be that, but I’m not sure people are rooting for him.

    Opposing fans, at least this one, didn’t appreciate his 6 or 7 championships comment. It’s not that easy to get even one.

  28. jmills June 5th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Wine like Pettitte and Perry ? Howard was an M.V.P. For the Maple Leafs. Jays messing around late tonight. Good nite! J

  29. 4 NYY June 5th, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Hi gang. Just got home, but got to see the game elsewhere. Andy surprises ( or does he?) yet again.

    Gotta give Martin credit, he’s warming a little now.

  30. Dean Winters June 5th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    If they don’t win this season he’s going to catch some much heat no pun intended. The pressure is on those guys to get it done. How are they losing to Boston at home????

  31. GreenBeret7 June 5th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Ford said Mantle was standing out in center field giggling. He knew what was going on, but, the rookie Pepitone couldn’t figure out why everybody was mad at him.

  32. 4 NYY June 5th, 2012 at 10:41 pm

    Yes, always want sux to lose, unless it means a playoff spot for us.

  33. Pat M. June 5th, 2012 at 10:44 pm

    GB…….Russell Branyon will be on the Yanks roster by the end of July

    “I prefer Boston (potentially) losing this way with Aceves blowing it after the big HR by Salty to tie it”

    Absolutely.

    Just heard an incredible stat. O’s 22-0 after leading in the 8th!

    ========================

    If you don’t mind my interruption, I rememer Elston hitting some monster HR’s now and again.

  36. bruceb June 5th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    That’s the type of game I can sit back and enjoy. Superb pitching by Andy P and timely offense. Simples. Now we just need to get the middle three going on a consistent basis and we’ll be flying.

  37. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 5th, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    So Johnson would get the BS and the W!

    sux lose !!!

    ————————————————————————————————————————-

    Howard and Skowron had as much power as anybody, but, until the learned to hit them to right field, like Mantle, they lost a ton of homers into Death Valley. Kubek and Richardson both said that Mantle may have lost 15-20 homers a year in that direction and to center field during their time with the team.

  41. yankfan June 5th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    andy pettitte is a pro, a vintage performance today

    hacks like kuroda hughes and all those busts in the farm should learn how to pitch from him

  42. GreenBeret7 June 5th, 2012 at 10:50 pm

    ————————————————————————————————————————-

    I sure wish he had a use for that glove, though. He’s dreadful, but, he can hammer a mistake a long ways. branyon is who left fielder with AA Trenton, Cody Johnson reminds me of. Massive left handed power, but, those strikeouts. Johnson is an average defensive outfielder with a good arm.

  43. TheHansons June 5th, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Bubye, Sux Nation!

  44. GreenBeret7 June 5th, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    Interesting note. The Cubs have optioned Carlos Marmol to AAA. Personally, I think his arm is toast.

  45. Pat M. June 5th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    The hoop is getting smaller and their throat is getting harder to swallow for the Miami Heat….This game is the series in reality

  46. Nilsson June 5th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Heck of a Game 5 winding down. Rondo’s shoots bricks, but does everything else. Unique player.

    Odds…..Life long Knick fan, but yes The Lakers are # 2 in my book ever since Magic Johnson and the Showtime Lakers…..Great Organization

  52. austinmac June 5th, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Once I saw Pettitte at 89 mph, I felt he would pitch well. A fastball sets it all up. He is fun to watch as he seems to keep getting smarter.

  53. TheHansons June 5th, 2012 at 11:12 pm

    Pierce has ice in his veins.

  54. Against All Odds June 5th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Yea great org. I root for both teams as well. Any thought on what they might do this season? They already picked up Bynum’s option which everyone knew they would. There are some rumors they might trade for Andre Iguodala. Rudy Gay appears to be on the block again but he might be out of their price range.(cap wise)

  55. GreenBeret7 June 5th, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    Lincecum has fallen off of the face of the Earth. 2-6 record, 6+ ERA and losing again tonight, 4-1 to the Padres.

  56. yanks 27 June 5th, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    SportsJC16
    Game over. Season over. Keep giving guys open 3′s. Time for #Heat to find a coach who makes guarding the 3 a priority.

  57. jacksquat June 5th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Somebody switched Lincecum and Zito.

  58. Pat M. June 5th, 2012 at 11:23 pm

    Odds…..The key is what to do with Gasol ??? And I fully expect to see Odom bacl next season…..Their bench is suspect and they need more offense from the small forward……….The Lakers face the same issues as do The Yanks, the new rules are design to keep both clubs in check…..Buss usually cares little about the cap in the past, however the taxes are overwhelming now

  59. LGY June 5th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Wow, TD Garden is going to be crazy on Thursday. Go Celtics :???:

  60. yanks 27 June 5th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Bynum will get traded for Dwight Howard
    Gasol will go to NJ for Deron Williams in a ST (NJ will have no choice but to accept or he walks)
    Odom will re-sign for the min

    The new Lakers dynasty begins

  61. Pat M. June 5th, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    The sound track from ” Beverly Hills Cop ” is playing in my head…………..The Heat is on !!!! ( Pointer Sisters )

  62. TheHansons June 5th, 2012 at 11:35 pm

    Knicks are my team but I gotta give respect to these old men in green.

  63. Against All Odds June 5th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Jerry didn’t care about the cap but Jim seems like he does. The trades they made at the deadline was all about salary relief.

    Yes Gasol is a big key to the team. This guy was so good during the championship runs but has faded over the past two seasons and I’m still trying to figure out how. Fatigue, problems with Kobe, girlfriend trouble, too much basketball(he always plays for his home country when he is asked too), etc.

    Odom could be back he loved it there. There is some talk he would either go to the Nets or Knicks.

    Right about the bench and the small forward position. I would like a good back-up for Kobe. The man is 33. Sure he can still average 27 pts per game but they can’t expect him to be superman game in game out every night. They need some depth. A guy like Harden off the bench would be great. They can’t get him but a player like that would do wonders for him.

    I can’t stand the new rules in the NBA smh

  64. Nick in SF June 5th, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Hopefully the old men in green can finish off the Heat in Game Six and then we can go back to hating them. :grin:

  65. Against All Odds June 5th, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    yanks 27 June 5th, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Bynum will get traded for Dwight Howard

    ————————

    Problem is Howard doesn’t want LA.

    Side note what a sports night: Yankees win, Sux lose, Mets lose, and the Heat lose. :D

  66. Bret The Hitman June 5th, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    I don’t care what happens just as long as Kevin Durant gets proper respect once and for all.

  67. BTX June 5th, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Celtics are the most unlikeable Boston team.

    Thank god the Giants beat the Pats twice in the big game or Boston fans would be even more insufferable.

  68. Pat M. June 5th, 2012 at 11:44 pm

    Kobe is 33 but has played an extra 3 seasons due to his playoff activities

  69. Nick in SF June 5th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Plus an extra season due to his (il)legal activities. :???:

    DBacks owner blasts Justin Upton and Stephen Drew. I hope Cash is keeping in touch with Kevin Towers on Upton:

    “As the Diamondbacks’ season sputters along, the team sitting five games under .500 through 55 games, managing general partner Ken Kendrick sounded off on a local radio show on Tuesday afternoon, criticizing shortstop Stephen Drew’s slow return from an ankle injury and tepid start by right fielder Justin Upton”

    BTX, I’m gonna go with the Sux as the most unlikable Boston team. Pats are #2. Celts are #3. Bruins get a whatever along with whatever soccer and lacrosse team plays there.

  76. Yankees Moneyline June 6th, 2012 at 1:53 am

    Guys i need somalidarity for the NBA. OKC tmrw for the series win and Heat to come back and win in 7. Or else I’m going to be eating ramen until football season

    Back to the game. Rmartins approach is so feast famine it can’t possibly come back to his Allstar season. Chavez seems to be one of the best at spoiling to oppo then turn on an inside mistake. Martin losses his shoes every swing. So disappointing trying to watch these guys for 162 plus spring training. But I do give them a ton I credit for having amazing day to day confidence and knowing the other team is in for a fight.

    These should be close-toed, have a rubber sole for traction (you will be running across slick dance floors at times), no more or no less than one-inch (to properly protect your joints) and broken-in. They put all the great on-line fashion finds in one place for you.
