Pettitte picks up win No. 250

Andy Pettitte

Andy Pettitte has his 250th win, and he got it with one of his finest starts of the season. Pettitte reached the milestone by allowing one run on three hits through 7.1 innings, beating the Mariners 3-1 in his second start since returning from a back injury. The Yankees went to their bullpen for the final five outs, despite the fact Pettitte had throw just 85 pitches. Mariano Rivera got his 22nd save. Pettitte struck out six, walked none and allowed his only run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth (only after Jayson Nix failed to turn a double play that would have kept the run from scoring). Nix largely made up for his mistake by driving in two runs on a pair of RBI singles. Vernon Wells also had two hits, and Brett Gardner had three. Just before the game ended, the Yankees drafted Pettitte’s son, Josh, in the 37th round.

    Congrats, Andy. We <3 you!

  3. Milia June 8th, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    Congratulations Andy. I am still in shock the lowly mets ruined Mariano’s attempt at perfection in his farewell season.

  4. Doreen June 8th, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    Yay, Andy!!

    Great day for the Pettitte family.

    This is the only way we can win right now…with stellar pitching.

    Who’d have thunk this game would finish before the Mets vs. Marlins! That one could go on til tomorrow.

  6. blake June 8th, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    Congrats Andy. Good job offense exploding for those 3 runs to ensure the victory

  7. tomingeorgia June 8th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Doreen,
    Call one of the lawyers here and have her disinherited tonight!

    Go, MO! Nice game, Gardner and Nix. Fun to watch.

  8. Doreen June 8th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Hey three runs is more than one.

    Yay, pitching!!!!

  9. Milia June 8th, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    Hearing Phil Dunphy in this FIOS commercial is difficult.

  10. Doreen June 8th, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    Tomingeorgia,

    To make matters worse, she is a laptops fan because of his wife being a model on deal or no deal. Go figure! I’m happy for her, of course. And jealous. She went to thevYankee game on Monday where Tex hit his granny!!!

  11. m1kew June 8th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    And … the Yankees draft Josh Pettitte in the 3th round.

  12. blake June 8th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Mariano should never stop pitching ever

  13. tomingeorgia June 8th, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    Doreen,
    If a player was married to Manuela from the Price Is Right, I might have a little respect for him. Deal or No Deal?, Nah.

  14. blake June 8th, 2013 at 7:17 pm

    @FeinsandNYDN: Josh Pettitte just said he’ll be attending Baylor, but he was thrilled to be drafted by the Yankees.

  15. gambo88 June 8th, 2013 at 7:18 pm

    And.. the Yankees draft OF Michael O’Neill in the 3th round. Hes the nephew of Paul ONeill.

  16. Bo knows June 8th, 2013 at 7:20 pm

    Yay, pitching!!!!

    ——————
    Amen! (HM Gardner – Nix) The pampers set scratched out a run – Boyah. Teix left six on base.

    Hey blake,
    How did the UNC-USC game turn out? Didn’t see it myself.

  18. bruceb June 8th, 2013 at 7:24 pm

    Mets 1 Marlins 1 going into the 20th inning…and I thought our offense was bad :)

  19. Doreen June 8th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Tex won the Yankees two games this week single handed practically, plus he scored the first run today.

    Please no. It’s just more space that I have to scroll past.

    Yanks won. Have some perspective. Things could be worse. You could be a Met fan; sitting through 20 (and counting) agonizing innings right now.

    Hey blake,

    Carolina (the deal one that wears light blue ) won 6-5

  22. mick June 8th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Nix , the ballplayer, came up big after his infield adventure cost a DP and led to a run, coming up big with 2 ribbies.

  23. pat June 8th, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    Hopefully just maintenance…..

    ESPNNYYankees
    Youkilis just walked through the clubhouse with an ice bag around his waist. Will advise

  24. comnsnse June 8th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    NC 6-5.

  25. Doreen June 8th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Eek. Sigh. Youk.

  26. mick June 8th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    Youk needs tmw off. Let Overbay play 1st and Tex DH. Adams or Nix to 3rd, Brignac at SS.

  27. tomingeorgia June 8th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    pat,
    He’s heading out for some Thai food tonight.

    Mets losing 2-1 in the 20th

  29. Doreen June 8th, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    Can he Mets tie the game in the bottom of the TWENTIETH!!!!

  30. bruceb June 8th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    Marlins get their first RISP for 10 innings and then take the lead. It’s a cruel game.

  31. bruceb June 8th, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    Baseball’s such a crazy game that you wouldn’t bet against the Mets sweeping the Yanks…if they ever played each other, of course.

  32. igotid88 June 8th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    Mets lost to the Marlins again

  33. mick June 8th, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    How do the Mets get up for us yet cant beat the Marlins.

  34. mick June 8th, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    I miss Joba’s tweets.

  35. Doreen June 8th, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Shucks. I was rooting for them to tie it back up.

  36. mick June 8th, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    stimulating read…

  37. pat June 8th, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    BryanHoch
    Kevin Youkilis had his back wrapped in ice after the game, but Joe Girardi said he’s fine. Slid into first base bag on defense in 2nd inn.

  38. bigdan22 June 8th, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    I can really see this team being 10 games out by the end of July. The pitching is very unlikely to be as good as it’s been. And the hitting is clearly worse than any team since pre-Torre. You may have to go back to the mid to late 60s to find a roster this inept. I’m not sure where it would improve. Wells, Youk and Haffner are all at very predictable levels given their age and recent seasons. Tex has been going downhill for awhile and we all knew he’s was most likely to sink lower this year after that injury. Jeter prob won’t be back. Cano should def improve and I suspect Grandy will help if he ever comes back. Arod’s a wild card but most likely a non-factor. Without changes to the roster I’d put the changes of regression at 70%, status quo 20% and improvement 10%. It’s amazing they’ve done this well this long.

  39. Doreen June 8th, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Why is the pitching unlikely to be as good as its been, when it was always going to be the pitching that was the strength of this team?

  40. bigdan22 June 8th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    They’ve won every game this year that they’ve scored 5 or more runs. I bet they’ve won most of the games they’ve scored four runs. That means, when the offense has shown up, the pitching has almost never let them down. Another way to say it, is their pitching has been extremely timely. That’s not going to continue.

  41. mick June 8th, 2013 at 8:15 pm

    better sit youk tmw, get hafner back at dh, tex at 1st, overbay in LF vs the King

  42. bigdan22 June 8th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    One interesting thing about Hernandez, when you’re hitting as poorly as the Yanks are, he really doesn’t make much of a difference. The Yanks are likely to be held to 3 runs or less no matter who’s pitching. And since Phelps could easily shut down the Mariner lineup, I’d say the Yanks have close to a 50% chance of winning tomorrow.

  43. KevinOsborne June 9th, 2013 at 2:07 am

    Felix is something like 75-25 in his career when the M’s score more than TWO runs for him in a start. He has 80 or do starts with the M’s scoring fewer than two.
    It really wouldn’t bother me, in fact I’d like to see him on the Yanks or some team that would score. He deserves it.
