VIDEO: Andy Pettitte completes career with complete game
All the retiring New York Yankees heroes seem to be leaving the stage in the most dramatic fashion possible. A short 48 hours after the emotional departure of Mariano Rivera from the mound at Yankee Stadium, Andy Pettitte finished his career with a complete game victory in Houston, the city he calls home and in which he grew up. Watch, as Pettitte stays in the game to retire J. D. Martinez and gets a rousing ovation from both Yankees and Astros fans alike (via MLB.com):
The win on Saturday night also gave him an 11-11 record, which meant he had no losing seasons in his 18-year career. The victory capped his 256 win versus only 153 losses. Pettitte won four World Series titles with the Yankees.
