BOSTON -- Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte pitched five innings in an extended spring game against Pirates prospects on Friday in Tampa, Fla.

The Associated Press reported that the left-handed Pettitte expects to make his next start at a higher level, possibly for Double-A Trenton.

Pettitte permitted two earned runs on four hits to the Pittsburgh squad, working at the Yankees' Himes Avenue Minor League complex.
