NEW YORK (WFAN) — Andy Pettitte credit the best way the Yankees battled again to win the 1996 World Collection for the success he and his teammates had down the street.
“It was simply an thrilling collection,” the 5-time World Collection champ informed WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Wednesday. “We misplaced each video games at house. In fact, most individuals thought the collection was over. The Atlanta Braves have been so nice with their pitching employees. There’s no approach we might win two out of three at the least to get us again to New York, in Atlanta. And we find yourself going there and sweeping them.
“That was type of the stepping stone, I feel, for all of us. The arrogance to know you could come down whenever you really feel such as you’re buried and there’s no probability to win it. There’s all the time hope.”
Pettitte stated all through his profession he thought again to that collection and the way he struggled badly in Recreation 1 — permitting seven runs in 2 1/three innings — earlier than pitching a gem in Recreation 5 — eight 1/three scoreless innings in a 1-zero win.
