A man in Cincinnati red— surrounded by New York Yankees blue—lifted a young boy over his head to snag a foul ball hit by Reds' slugger Joey Votto during a game at Yankee Stadium. It might have been the only good thing any Reds fan could take away from the game as Andy Pettitte baffled the visiting team with eight scoreless innings for a 4-0 victory.
There were 42, 014 other fans in the stadium who would have used their own left-handed kid to snag the ball if they had the chance.
The 39-year old Pettitte fanned nine hitters in eight innings in his first post-retirement win. The Yankees also ended an offensive drought with home runs by Robinson Cano and Raul Ibanez off Reds starter Bronson Arroyo.
More importantly, Pettitte proved his comeback is no fluke.
