Philadelphia Phillies (2-3) at YankeesNew York Yankees (3-2)

Pedro Martinez, RHP (0-1) vs. Andy Pettitte, LHP (1-0)

Time: 7:57 p.m at Yankees Stadium
Weather: Mostly Cloudy, 51 degrees
TV: FOX
Twitter: Phillies Nation

Once again, it’s do or die.  Cliff Lee and Chase Utley pushed this series to Game 6.  Now, Pedro Martinez is handed the ball needing to further extend the series.  A win evens the series and keeps the Phillies’ hopes of repeating alive.

Pedro Martinez lost to the Yankees in Game 2, though he pitched very well.  He gave up three runs in six innings, yet tonight is the type of situation where “the most influential player that ever stepped into Yankee Stadium” thrives.

The Phillies offense owe Pedro.  He has been excellent during the postseason, but the Phillies failed to provide him with run support.  Chase Utley brings in a hot bat and could break Reggie Jackson’s World Series home run record with another dinger tonight.  As you recall, Jayson Werth hit two home runs off Pettitte in Game 3.

Unlike Pedro who is pitching on normal rest, Andy Pettitte is pitching on three days’ rest.  In his career, Pettitte is 4-6 with a 4.15 ERA on short rest, with his last appearance coming in 2006. He has been perfect (wins-wise) this postseason.  He won both clinching games of the postseason this year and he has a chance for another.

It’s a must-win.  Keep the high hopes!

Phillies Lineup: Shane Victorino is in the lineup despite having a bruised finger.  Raul Ibanez will DH with Ben Francisco in left.  Pedro Feliz is batting seventh.

Rollins (SS), Victorino (CF), Utley (2B), Howard (1B), Werth (RF), Ibanez (DH), Feliz (3B), Francisco (LF), Ruiz (C)

Yankees Lineup: Jeter (SS), Damon (LF), Teixeira (1B), Rodriguez (3B), Matsui (DH), Posada (C), Cano (2B), Swisher (RF), Gardner (CF)

GO PHILLIES!

    It pretty exceptional when you think of how the bull pen was on life support, both the darlings of last year (Ligde and Hamels) have had off years, our # 2 starter goes down early in the season that were even at a game 6 against the Hankees with a 1 mill. 38 year stop gap acquired half way thru the season taking the mound. I hope the old goat has that extra gear he’s been saving up ever since we clinced the NL East.

    Was it just me or did that rendition of the Star Spangled Banner not quite sound worthy of the song? Maybe its just that the Yankees suck and anything the condone does as well. See I’m jaded!

    Well here goes and either way it will be a helluva game.
    Too bad the Skankees don’t have a long flight to cry on as they go home the losers they will be. BUT it will be better tomorrow when they have to spend a year listening to their loser fans remind them daily of being the losers they are. Does that even make sense??????

    Oh he busted alright, busted down the line.

    We need to be a little more patient with Pettitte. They have to make him throw pitches. Get him out in the 6th inning and we should be ok.

    That was a quick inning. i would of put Werth 3rd tonight. God I wish we had better pitching. Charlie really should of started Happ in this post season. Outside of Lee we suck.

    Wow Joe Buck is a c*ck sucker…the Phillies have one mound visit and his response “Are you kidding me?” But he said nothing while the Yankees wore out the grass going to the mound in game 3.

     
  • Posts: 0 Ed R.

    Uh Jeff, Pedro has done very well this post season. His record is a result of the team not hitting at all for him. Happ has been pretty much awful since he came back from injury.
