Pregame concerns: The Angels are 42-17 at home. ... Pettitte is 11-6 with a 4.15 ERA in 21 career starts against Los Angeles. Pettitte also has a great record coming off a Yankee loss in his career. I'm not sure what the exact record is, but I know it's very good. ... Garrett Anderson is 26-69 with three home runs and 10 RBIs against Pettitte. Last night, Anderson had two home runs. Gary Matthews Jr. is 5-13 with three doubles and two RBIs against Pettitte. ... Lackey is 4-6 with a 4.90 ERA in 12 career starts against New York. ... Rodriguez is only 8-41 against Lackey, but he has three home runs and five RBIs. ... Damon is 11-37 with three RBIs against Lackey. ... Jeter is 10-32 with one home run, three RBIs and six doubles against Lackey. ... Jason Giambi should be in tonight's lineup. He is 12-30 with two home runs and six RBIs against Lackey.
