Andy Pettitte Pitches 5 Innings With Yankees Affiliate Double-A Trenton

Andy Pettitte pitched five innings for Double-A Trenton against the Erie Seawolves on Wednesday, and gave up four runs (three earned) among seven hits. He also struck out three and walked one during the outing, throwing 59 strikes among his 81 pitches.

Pettitte left in the sixth inning to a standing ovation by the sellout crowd. He started out rough giving up singles to each of the first two batters he faced, and a run on a fielder's choice. He promptly retired the next nine straight batters. He gave up his second run on a walk and two hits in the fourth, and his third on an error in the fifth. He left a man on first in the sixth who would eventually score after Pettitte was pulled.

The 40-year-old former New York Yankees retiree is still eyeing a return to the majors sometime around May 10. Pettitte is expected to make at least three more minor league starts in preparation.
