Andy Pettitte Injury Update: Yankees Pitcher Suffers Minor Setback

Andy Pettitte has suffered a minor setback in his recovery from a fracture in his left fibula. The New York Yankees left-hander had to momentarily suspend his throwing program but is still looking to return in August.

"Doc said he was hoping it would be healed a little better than it was," Pettitte said. "The first two weeks it healed really quick and I feel like we have slowed down a little bit. He said, 'Let's try to stay off it a little bit.' That is where we are at."

Pettitte worked his way up to 55 pitches throwing off flat ground. Progress came a bit too quickly, however, and staying on his feet increased swelling around the ankle. Pettitte still has approximately one more month left on his 60-day stint on the disabled list, so there is still a chance he'll be ready to return as soon as he possibly can.

Yankees Vs. Red Sox Final Score: New York Loses To Boston, 8-6

Despite a late eighth inning rally led by first baseman Mark Teixeira, the New York Yankees were unable to defeat the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night, falling by a final score of 8-6.

The Yankees found themselves in an early hole after Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez doubled to score designated hitter Pedro Ciriaco. Third baseman Will Middlebrooks quickly followed that up with a double of his own to make the score 3-0 after one inning.

The Yankees responded in the third inning after a solo shot by catcher Chris Stewart, and both teams exchanged three runs each in the fifth to make the score 6-4. The Yankees managed to tie things up in the bottom of the eighth inning thanks to a two run homer by Teixeira, but Boston regained the lead with two ninth inning runs to put the game out of reach.

Starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia was uncharacteristically off his game, allowing six runs (all earned) in six innings. He struck out six and gave up two walks.

The game was delayed for over two hours due to rain. It was originally slated to begin at 4:05 p.m. Eastern Time.

The loss drops the Yankees to 60-40 on the season, while the Red Sox improve to 50-51. The third and final game of the series will be played Sunday at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

Yankees Vs. Red Sox Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Yankees (60-39) opened their series against the Boston Red Sox (49-51) with a 10-3 victory Friday night, improving their season record against their AL East rivals to 7-1. They look to continue that success Saturday as CC Sabathia (10-3 3.30 ERA) takes the mound, facing Jon Lester (5-8 5.46 ERA) for Boston.

Facing Boston has meant little but good times for the Yankees in 2012. They've scored 59 runs while winning six of seven, including 10 or more runs in three games. Curtis Granderson had a grand slam in Friday's victory and is 10-25 against Boston, and Russell Martin and Raul Ibanez both had home runs. They have to like their chances facing Lester, who allowed five runs in 4 1/3 innings versus New York on July 8. The Boston starter has lost three in a row, including giving up 11 runs in a 15-7 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays last Sunday. The Yankees look to make it four running on Saturday afternoon.
