In his final start at Yankee Stadium this afternoon, starter Andy Pettitte went seven innings, holding the Giants to just two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out six. The lefty is scheduled to make one final start against his former team in Houston on Saturday.

As good as Pettitte was, though, it wasn’t enough. Giants starter Yusmeiro Petit continued his recent run of solid pitching, allowing one run on six hits and two walks while striking out seven in six and one-third innings of work. The Yankees’ lone run came on a Mark Reynolds solo home run in the third inning. Giants relievers Javier Lopez, Santiago Casilla, and Sergio Romo kept the Yankees off the board to wrap up the 2-1 victory. Romo logs save number 36 of the season.

Though the Yankees aren’t mathematically eliminated from the AL Wild Card race, they are playing for pride now as they’re four games behind the second Wild Card and would need to leap over both the Rangers and the Royals while holding off the Orioles as well.

    Congratulations to Pettitte and Rivera on their careers. May they ride off in the sunset in peace next Sunday.

      You’re giving Sox fans a bad name. Ever hear of class or grace?
