Here are the Angels’ numbers against Pettitte (postseason included).
Here are the Yankees’ numbers against Saunders (postseason included).
I’m expecting a big game out of Alex Rodriguez, who is 7-for-17 against Saunders, with 2 home runs and 2 doubles. Also, Andy is searching for his 16th postseason win, which would make him the all-time leader. If he struggles or if the game remains close upon his exit, the Yankees could use A.J. Burnett as a reliever tonight. According to Andy McCullough (Star-Ledger), Burnett skipped his bullpen session on Friday in preparation for a relief appearance over the weekend. Girardi says that he could use him for one out or more—it depends on the situation—so that’s definitely something to keep in mind.
Let’s go, boys. A win tonight would prevent us all from having heart attacks tomorrow.
