Yankees starter Andy Pettitte became the 47th pitcher in Major League history to join the 250-win club with a victory over the Mariners this afternoon. Pettitte held the Mariners to one run on three hits and no walks in seven and a third innings, striking out six as the Yankees went on to win 3-1.
ESPN Stats & Info points out that Pettitte is the fifth Yankee in the 250-win club:

If he wins five more games between his next start and the end of the season, he should move into 42nd place on the all-time list, ahead of Red Faber and Jack Morris at 254 and behind Ted Lyons at 260.
