Tragic numbers

The Yankees' tragic numbers in the AL East and wild-card stand at 15 and 20, respectively.

This afternoon was more of the same for New York. Andy Pettitte put the Yankees in an early hole, rendering the eight hits and two runs they were able to scratch across Roy Halladay meaningless.

Pettitte, making a case to not be brought back next season, had a second straight outing of 10 hits and six earned runs allowed. His season ERA now stands at 4.52. The Yankees are 3-6 in Pettitte's starts since the All-Star break.

The only positive to take from this afternoon was Alfredo Aceves' debut. Wearing No. 91 in honor of Dennis Rodman, he struck out three batters in two perfect innings of work.
