Pettitte’s hand bruised after barehand play, x-rays negativeBy
Andy Pettitte has a bruise on his left hand after bare-handing a one-hopper in the sixth inning of this afternoon’s game. He remained in the game and retired the next two batters, though he was in noticeable discomfort. X-rays were negative and Pettitte expects to make his next start. Thanks to Thursday’s scheduled day off, he’ll get a little more rest than usual.
