Pitching
Andy Pettitte
vs. Baltimore
7.1 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 8 K, ND

The old man still has tricks up his sleeve. The 37-year-old gave up a homer to Nick Markakis in the top of the first, but was lights out the rest of the game, scattering four more hits through seven innings.

Pettitte owners will be happy to see this kind of outing especially after getting roughed up his previous two starts against Toronto and LAA.

While it is unsure as to whether or not this performance will turn the page on his season, the veteran is 8-5 on the year with an ERA of 4.62.


Hitting
Matt Holliday-
vs. Minnesota
4-5 2 home runs, 6 RBI, 4 runs, 2 doubles

Holliday's season has not been what many expected, and overall a pretty large disappointment. But yesterday's performance is more the '07 MVP runner-up we remember.

He his more than 1/6 of his season's home runs yesterday and six RBI is always a good day.

Much like the pitcher with a similar-sounding name, Matt will most likely be moved by the trade deadline, as Oakland is pretty pitiful and won't be competing anytime soon.

Justin Morneau
vs. Oakland
3-5 2 home runs, 7 RBI, 4 runs

Morneau continues his early MVP-like season in a collapse loss to Oakland. But the loss had nothing to do with the first basemen and his two-home run, seven-RBI performance.

There is no reason to think Morneau isn't going to hit 30 homers and driving in 125 runs, making his a must-keep in all fantasy leagues.
