The Yanks go for their second series win of the season, as Andy Pettitte takes on Andy Sonnanstine.
Pettitte, coming off a stellar game in Kansas City, has great numbers against Tampa: a 15-4 career record with a 3.63 ERA in 146.1 career innings. Last year, Pettitte went 2-2 with a 4.12 ERA in 24 innings against Tampa.
Sonnanstine is coming off a rough outing in Baltimore where he got hammered for five runs in 4.2 innings. His career against the Yankees is poor, having a 6.08 ERA in 23.2 innings. Last year was even worse: a 10.61 ERA in 9.1 innings over two games. Let's hope that trend continues.
