Yankees' Andy Pettitte Is This Generation's Mr. October

Ronald MonestimeCorrespondent IOctober 9, 2010

With concerns about how his back would hold up and whether he fully recuperated from a groin injury that sidelined him for two months, Andy Pettitte entered this postseason as one of the question marks in the New York Yankees starting rotation. But what makes Pettitte special is there’s only one thing he does when the calendar flips to October: win.

In seven innings of work against the Minnesota Twins in Game 2 of the American League Divisional Series, Pettitte surrendered only two runs on five hits to add to his record total of victories in the postseason (19). More importantly though, Pettitte’s solid outing propelled the Yankees to a commanding 2-0 lead over the Twins with the series heading back to Yankee Stadium for Game 3 Saturday evening.
