The Yankees (21-18) started up their first series of interleague play on Friday night when the Cincinnati Reds (19-19) came into town and Andy Pettitte shut them down in the 4-0 victory. Pettitte was phenomenal in his second start since his return to the team. Pettitte threw eight innings of shutout ball giving up only four hits, walked only one and struck out nine. Pettitte threw 115 pitches in his eight innings.

Reds starter Bronson Arroyo was also sharp in his start. Arroyo was cruising along giving up only one run before the Yankees three run eighth inning. Over 7 2/3 innings Arroyo gave up four runs on nine hits, walked one and struck out four.  It seemed that Arroyo just ran out of steam in the eighth.

In the eighth inning the Yankees were looking to add to their 1-0 lead. After two quick outs Robinson Cano stepped in and blasted a towering solo home run to right field to make the score 2-0. It was Cano’s fourth. Alex Rodriguez was next; he singled which lead to a Raul Ibanez line drive home run over the right field wall, his eighth of the season.

Boone Logan would shut the Reds down 1-2-3 in the ninth finishing off Pettitte’s outstanding performance.  The Reds four hits were all singles and they only had one runner in scoring position all night.

The Yankees play again Saturday afternoon.  Ivan Nova (4-1 5.44) goes for the Yankees while Homer Bailey (1-3 4.35) will start for the Reds. Pregame coverage begins at 12:30, first pitch at 1:05 right here on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio.
