Yankees at Blue Jays preview: Game time, TV schedule, probable pitchers

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Andy Pettitte gets the start for New York today as the Yankees try to protect a one-game lead in the American League East.

Coming off a decisive Friday night victory over the Blue Jays, the New York Yankees will look for their 11th win in their last 14 games.

Every win counts for the Yankees, as no American League team has clinched a playoff spot yet. With five games to play, the Yanks hold a one-game lead over the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East division.

The Yankees will send Andy Pettitte to the mound. In 11 starts this season, the veteran lefty boasts a 2.71 ERA and a 5-3 record. Pettitte has made two starts for the Yankees since returning from the disabled list, and did not allowed an earned run in either outing.

The Blue Jays will counter with Ricky Romero, who -- mercifully -- got a win in his last outing. After starting the season with an 8-1 record, Romero began a losing streak that would last three months. Between June 27 and Sept 19, Romero lost 13 games and won none.

Saturday's game starts at 1:07 p.m. ET and can be found on YES.
