Andy Pettitte won his eighth game of the year (and his 194th overall) in today’s 5-4 comeback win. They now trail Detroit by a half game in the wild card.
Joba Chamberlain has been summoned to the major leagues and is scheduled to pitch in relief of Roger Clemens Tuesday night as the New York Yankees visit the Toronto Blue Jays.
Chamberlain, a 21-year-old former Nebraska All-American, received word of the promotion Monday, according to his father, Harlan Chamberlain, and immediately flew from Scranton, Pa., to Toronto.
The Yankees have not officially announced the move.
“To be happening this quick, it’s just a dream,” the elder Chamberlain said. “It’s a dream that was always there, but to achieve it this quick, it’s unbelievable. It’s surreal.”
