NYY: LHP Andy Pettitte (2-3, 2.83 ERA)
Pettitte continues to pitch well, but opposite of Schilling, his team hasn't been winning when he starts. In his last outing against the Mets, Pettitte gave up five hits and three runs in seven innings, striking out four and walking one in a 3-2 loss at Shea Stadium.
The Red Sox have been winning the games Schilling starts, but the right-hander has struggled as of late. That's not a good sign as he faces the Bombers for the second time this season. In his first start against the Yankees on April 20, he was touched for eight hits and five runs. The Red Sox did, however, win that game. Player to watch
David Ortiz has 10 hits in 28 career at-bats against Pettitte, including a home run and four RBIs. The left-handed-hitting slugger has also raked three doubles off of Pettitte and owns a .571 slugging percentage against him. Tickets
