It's Pedro vs. Pettitte in Game 6
Yankees manager Joe Girardi just announced that left-hander Andy Pettitte will pitch Game 6 of the World Series tomorrow night at Yankee Stadium.
Pettitte will be pitching on short rest.
Girardi said after Game 5 last night that he would ask Pettitte how he felt before he made a decision. He said the conversation went something like this:
“How do you feel?”
Pettitte is 4-6 with a 4.16 ERA on short rest in his career, although he has not pitched on short rest since 2006 with Houston. It could be risky.
“We’re still very comfortable doing it,” Girardi said.
