His last start against the Jays was at Yankee Stadium on July 17, when he record the no-decision over seven innings of one-run ball. Pettitte struck out seven and walked three as the Yankees won, 3-2.
Jesse Litsch will take the mound for the Blue Jays, facing the Yankees for the first time since May 30, and the second time this season. Litsch's May outing against New York was brief -- just two-thirds of an inning, in which he allowed four runs on five hits.
NYY: LHP Andy Pettitte (7-7, 3.97 ERA)
On Wednesday, Pettitte turned out a solid seven-inning victory against the White Sox, allowing six hits and one run while striking out six. Against the Blue Jays, the left-hander is 15-8 with a 4.08 ERA in 30 career starts, and 10-4 in 15 starts at Rogers Centre.
TOR: RHP Jesse Litsch (4-4, 3.47 ERA)
Posting an impressive 1.71 ERA in July, Litsch is going into Monday's game with two consecutive wins. In his last start, a 2-0 win over the Devil Rays at Tropicana Field, Litsch held Tampa Bay without a run over his 6 2/3 innings, though he allowed seven hits and struck out just two batters.
