As expected, Andy Pettitte will start Game 6 of the World Series for the Yankees tomorrow night. The Phillies will counter with Pedro Martinez.
Pettitte, who has more postseason wins than any pitcher in baseball history, will come back on three days' rest. He struck out seven and allowed four runs in six innings in a Game 2 victory Saturday night.
Manager Joe Girardi had said before Monday night's Game 5 that he wanted to see how Pettitte felt today before naming him the starter, officially.
Asked today about the conversation with Pettitte, Girardi said it went something like this: " 'How do you feel?' and he said he felt great. It doesn't take more than that. This is something that we talked about, and we're still very comfortable doing it, and he's our guy tomorrow."
