Morning Notes: Recap, Pettitte, Jeter, Aceves, Laird
Here are a few quick items on the day:
- Yesterday, in a span of about 5 hours, the Yankees beat the Twins twice. First 1-0, then 3-2.
- Andy Pettitte, the starter of game two, was particularly sharp. His line: 8 IP 8 H 2 ER 0 BB 4 K
- Derek Jeter’s patented jump throw was integral yesterday and is part of his aura, writes Bryan Hoch.
- No good news to report on the Alfredo Aceves front. Currently, there is no timetable for his return.
- Quick minor league mention—the infamous Brandon Laird gained some positive notoriety last night.
Laird actually hit for the cycle against the SeaWolves and he sealed it with a walk-off homer. That’s a pretty remarkable feat, to say the least.
