It is true that nobody on the current Astros played with Andy, who toiled in Houston from 2004 – 2006 and was the team MVP in their only National League pennant season of 2005.  Lefty reliever Wesley Wright is the longest tenured Astros player, having come to the bigs in 2008. With a 9-1 victory while pounding out 17 hits, this positions the Astros to actually win the series in New York, if they can eek out a win over one of the next two games. Not likely, but possible. -Dave (@lhd_on_sports) Follow us on Twitter @rbts_baseball The post Houston Astros pound former teammate Andy Pettitte at Yankee Stadium appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
