Best of All: This was one of Pettitte's best starts of the year. He struck out nine, walked four and allowed five hits and a run. The run was earned, but came on a throwing error by Pettitte.
A-Rod is hitting .272 on the year, but I think everyone has noticed that he has really made his hits count this year. Plus, a nice base running play in the eighth last night and a great defensive play the night before. He's doing it all this year.
Nick Swisher stayed hot with Robinson Cano's bat suggestion. The first-time All-Star went 4-for-4 with a walk!
Worst of All: Brett Gardner has cooled off a bit from his scorching June. He has two hits in his last 15 at-bats.
Coming Up: Tonight should be an even better pitching matchup with Phil Hughes and Cliff Lee slated to start. Find out what Hughes could accomplish in the start in a post later today.
