Thanks a Lot, Andy

After the bullpen had to start getting loose in the 3rd, Andy Pettitte couldn't make it past the 5th while giving up 12 hits, 1 walk, and 5 earned.

The offense, predictably, couldn't do anything against a pitcher they hadn't seen before.  Fernando Nieve looked like a solid starter rather than a journeyman.  6 baserunners in nearly 7 innings of work- if Arod hadn't juiced one in the second, the Yanks wouldn't have scored a run with Nieve on the mound.

The only bright side is that Aceves was good, despite the homer, and Veras looked almost like a big league pitcher.
