Andy Pettitte Notches His Third Win as Yankees Beat Blue Jays

The Yankees offense rolled over the Blue Jays thanks in part to home runs by the big bats of Vernon Wells, Travis Hafner and Lyle Overbay. Wait, what?

The new members of the patchwork Yankees continue to impress, even as the news of a Derek Jeter setback looms over the club. The Yankees offense put two runs on the board in the first inning and continued kept the pedal to the metal all night long, beating the Blue Jays in Toronto, 9-4. The Bombers got contributions up and down the line-up, and blew the game open in the third inning when a Cody Rasmus throwing error allowed two runs to score, opening up a 5-1 lead.

Andy Pettitte pitched a solid game, throwing 7.1 innings of three run ball en route to his third victory of the season. Pettitte’s only serious blemish was a two run homer surrendered to Jose Bautista in the bottom of the sixth, when the game was already well in hand.

Shawn Kelley finished the Jays off, throwing 1 and 2/3 innings of one run ball in relief. The lone run given up was a solo homerun to J.P. Arencibia with two outs in the ninth. The Yankees have now won eight of their last ten.
