Offense quiet as Yanks are blanked 2-0 vs. Blue Jays

Andy Pettitte 2

In the last month or so, Andy Pettitte has been the Yankees best pitcher. He was denied a victory in his previous two starts because the bullpen blew his lead. Tonight he got the loss because the Yankees couldn’t score against R.A. Dickey.

The Yankees couldn’t get the timely two out hit, stranding five runners in the first two innings of the game, then managed only two hits the next seven innings. Andy Pettitte pitched as well as you would want, going 6.2 IP, giving up one run (a solo HR to Colby Rasmus). Shawn Kelley gave up a homer in the 7th inning to Rajai Davis, making the score 2-0 and ultimately the final score.

The Yankees have spiraled down the Wild Card standings, going behind the Kansas City Royals with 11 crucial games remaining in the season. If the Yankees can’t find a way into the postseason, this would be the first time since 2008 that the Yankees would miss the postseason.

— The season is almost over. Don’t get left. Go to the Yankees ticket exchange to see them one last time.

    Ken Rosenthal was asked if he would vote for Andy Pettitte for the Hall…he was smart enough to skirt the question but from what he said, there's no way he would vote for him…sounds reasonable, I don't think Pettitte gets in because he's 100+ games over .500 (career) or he has 5 rings…he was not one of the dominant pitchers over his career but somehow he did manage to win 255 games in the regular season and 19 in the post-season…he's doing something right…
