As Andy Pettitte continues to battle the rain, the crowd,
and, of course, the Phillies vaunted lineup, I’m going to share my thoughts
about his fifth-inning hit.
Not only did Pettitte’s RBI single tie the game, it kept the Yanks alive and well in the inning. And before the frame was over, the Yankees
added two more runs, which gave them a 5-3 lead.
Pettitte’s place in baseball lore is still being decided,
but one fact is indisputable: Pettitte is a fierce competitor.
