Yankees update

Last night's rainout against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays threw a wrinkle into the New York Yankees' playoff preparations. Besides setting the stage for a potential makeup game with Tampa Bay on Monday - to determine home-field advantage for the postseason - the rainout also forced Yankees manager Joe Torre to juggle his pitching plans. Torre seems to be leaning toward having Pettitte or Roger Clemens start Game 1 of the Division Series on Tuesday, but with Pettitte starting tonight, he'd have to start Game 1 on only three days' rest. Torre plans to use Pettitte for just five innings tonight and decide from there. The Orioles were originally scheduled to face Mike Mussina on Sunday, but with the rotation pushed back, he'll likely finish the season 17-10 with a 4.14 ERA. The Yankees swept four games from the Orioles this month in New York and lead the season series 10-6.
