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.
