Yankees win game, lose Pettitte

Andy Pettitte is heading to the disabled list after fracturing his left ankle this afternoon. Pettitte left the game in the fifth inning after he was hit by a sharp comebacker. The Yankees say he will not need surgery, but he will require six weeks to heal. Without Pettitte, the Yankees rallied to extend their winning streak to five games. Robinson Cano’s seventh home run in his past 10 games lifted them to a 5-4 win and a three-game series sweep against the Indians. Freddy Garcia retired all seven batters he faced to pick up the win. Rafael Soriano walked in a run in the ninth, but Eric Chavez’s insurance RBI in the eighth proved crucial.
