Andy Pettitte's Bid for Perfect Game Ends with Error: New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte had retired the first 20 batters he faced when third baseman Jerry Hairston let a routine ground ball go through his legs in the seventh inning Monday night. "That's OK," Pettitte didn't say afterward. "I retire the first 20 batters I face all the time, and I'm a young pitcher with my best years ahead of me. No, wait. I'm 37 years old. I hate you, Jerry Hairston!"
