• Andy Pettitte had a perfect game in Baltimore broken up when Jerry Hairston Jr. made an error with two outs in the seventh inning. Luckily for Hairston, Pettitte gave up a single to the next batter, but who knows what would have happened had the third baseman, playing to spell Alex Rodirguez, made the play? Pettitte finished by going eight innings, walking none and striking out eight and allowing a lone run. The Yankees won, 5-1, and lead the American League East by 6.5 games. Nick Swisher homered for the 19th time on the road -- he has 22 overall -- to start the scoring. He also had an RBI double.
