Swisher’s shot backs Pettitte in 3-2 win

Andy Pettitte pitched eight strong innings and Nick Swisher broke a 2-2 tie with a solo jack in the ninth and the Yankees held on for a 3-2 win over the Twins to clinch another series win .

Best of all: Mariano Rivera closed for the second time in four hours and looked better than his first appearance. All of his pitches were right to the glove and no ball made it out of the infield.

Worst of all: Not much. Alex Rodriguez and Francisco Cervelli combined to go 0-for-5, but Cervelli walked twice and A-Rod walked once.

Coming up: The Yankees look for the sweep Thursday night at Target Field.
