Andy Pettitte, LHP (10-6, 3.93)
Yankees (49-42)
Brian Tallet, LHP (0-1, 2.83)
Blue Jays (44-47)

Scouting Report:
Yankees: Coming off one of his worst starts of the year -- he had allowed six runs in 4 2/3 innings to the Red Sox on July 3 -- Pettitte retired the first two Rays he saw on two pitches on Tuesday. Then he mowed through the rest of baseball's best team, allowing only one batter to reach second base through the first six innings.

Blue Jays: Tallet will be making a spot start in place of injured starter Dustin McGowan. This will be Tallet's first start of the season and only the seventh of his career -- and the first since 2006. The left-hander has been one of the better relievers for the Jays this year. He has allowed just 32 hits over 35 innings, while holding opponents to a .239 batting average. In his last appearance, facing Baltimore on Tuesday, Tallet tossed two perfect innings.
