Like father, like son?  Apparently. Heading into Saturday's contest against the Seattle Mariners, the Pettitte family had to know that this could happen, right?  I mean, Andy Pettitte's son Josh, who recently finished up high school, had even made the trip to the Pacific Northwest watch his dad pitch. When the elder Pettitte announced he was coming back for the 2013 season, it was just a matter of time before win number 250 was under his belt.  The 40-year-old entered the year with 245 victories and, fittingly, he was on the hill Saturday night going for the milestone will his son was waiting to hear if he'd been drafted. Well, with a 3-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners, Andy got his win.  And with his New York Yankees selecting son Josh in the 37th round of the draft...both father and son were happy. "It's all tied in together now for me," Andy said following the game. "It's like I can't separate them because they're both together. It just all happened right here, and the game was ending, so it's just really cool." On June 7, 1995, when son Josh was just seven months old, Andy Pettitte won his first career game. Eighteen years and a day later, the lefty secured sole possession of 43rd place on the all-time wins list. You might recall, Josh Pettitte, who has already committed to play baseball at Baylor University, made news earlier this year when he threw a no-hitter for his high school team.  He has already said he'll re-enter the draft three years from now. "It's a great honor and blessing getting the call from the team that you've grown up watching and all the big leaguers play for," the 18-year-old Josh said. Suffice it to say, the Pettittes had a great day.
