Andy Pettitte won his’ 250th career game on Saturday helping the New York Yankees defeating the Seattle Mariners 3-1. Pettitte pitched 7 and 1/3 innings and gave up 1 earned run to improve his’ record to 5-3 on the year. Reaching 250 wins on Saturday Pettitte became just the 47th pitcher to reach the milestone. In addition, Pettitte has 1,940 career strikeouts with the Yankees and only trails Whitey Ford by 16. Also, Pettitte’s 213 career victory ranks him third all-time in wins with the New York Yankees. Pettitte only trails Ford (236) and Red Ruffing (231) in career wins as a Yankee. Turning 41 June 15, Pettitte still feels he can pitch a few more years especially how he throws his’ slider down and away from hitters. With a 3.82 ERA this year and his’ ability to locate his pitches, expect to see Pettitte pitch a few more years.
