Andy Pettitte was strong and looked like the Andy of old as he held the Royals to one run in seven innings while striking out 6.
The offense was led by Nick Swisher and Jorge Posada as the Yanks scored 4 runs. The Yankee 'pen continued to dominate as they turned in another 2 shutout innings with 4 whiffs. Rivera finally got into a game and notched his first save of the year. Bruney picked up a hold.
The Yankees took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first on Jorge's 2 rin single and never looked back. For anyone who likes to count, Andy threw 99 pitches.
CC Sabathia will start Saturday at 7:00 as the road trip continues. I'm sure the fairly weak Royals will put CC on track for his first win as a Yankee.
