A Great Competitor, Pettitte Silences any Doubters

October 7, 2010 — Andy Pettitte
answered a very important question with his performance in Game 2 of the ALDS.


In the weeks
leading up to the postseason, New York City voiced its collective concern about
the 38-year-old lefty. Yankees fans and the many journalists who cover the team
wondered if Pettitte, who only made three starts in the second half of the
regular season after staining a muscle in his groin, could re-gain his
early-season form.

Pettitte
silenced any doubters by giving his team seven innings of work, in which he
only gave up two runs on five hits and one walk. Behind Pettitte’s gem, the
Yankees won the game, 5-2, and took a two games to none series lead back to New
York.

Pettitte is one of the great competitors the game will ever see, and he proved it again.
