Andy Pettitte is a pretty good pitcher to take the mound in this game.  The Yankees have given themselves a nice lead, but his experience will keep him from getting too comfortable.

This is his 37th career start in the playoffs, his record during that time is 15-9 with a 3.89 ERA. Pettitte is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA over his last four playoff starts.
