Pettitte is Mr. April for the Yanks

       Andy Pettitte will attempt to go undefeated in the month of April for the first time since 1997 when the Yankees host the White Sox tonight.

      April has always been a good month for the left-hander. Pettitte has won more games in April (29) than any pitcher in Yankee history. He enters tonight's game with a 29-15 record in the season's opening month. He also brings a 3-0 record and 1.29 ERA to the mound for the season, the lowest he's ever had through four starts.

The 37-year-old has gone eight innings in his last two starts, and he's completed six innings in all four of his outings. In 28 innings of work, he's given up a total of four runs and has yet to allow a home run.

In his last three starts, he's had a three run lead when exiting. In his season debut, he left the game with the score tied.
