Game 4

Andy Pettitte won this game with a dominating performance. Anytime you can get seven innings out of your starter and only have him give up one run, you should win. His control was nearly perfect and he only surrendered one walk while K'ing six. Bruney had a good inning and Rivera finished it off with his first save. The offense also performed fairly well again. I would have hoped they would do better against Ponson but they got enough runs. Swisher had another extra base hit, although his misplay in the outfield cost Pettitte his only run. Teixeira and Cano also continued their mini hot streaks.

All in all, this was exactly what the Yankees needed. Everything went about as well as you could hope for. Now with Sabathia lined up for tomorrow, they can hopefully get over .500.
