The New York Yankees may have lost their game on Sunday to the Seattle Mariners, but they gained a possible savior from the past in Andy Pettitte.
Pettitte made his return to the big league mound since suffering a tough playoff defeat against the Texas Rangers back in October of 2010. Coming out to a standing ovation from the Yankees faithful, Pettitte looked sharp early on during his first outing. In fact, he did not allow a ht until the fourth inning of his season debut.
Unfortunately for Pettitte and New York, it would not be the storybook ending on Mother’s Day that many in the Bronx had hoped to see. Pettitte went on to allow a two run home run to Justin Smoak, and another two run bomb a couple of innings later to Casper Wells.
