New York Yankees left hander Andy Pettitte will get the call to start Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Baltimore Orioles, reports the New York Daily News.

Ace CC Sabathia will start Game One on Sunday and right-hander Hiroki Kuroda will start Game 3.

Pettitte came out of retirement this season and went 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA and 69 strikeouts in 75 1/3 innings. He missed part of the season after taking a line drive to his lower leg and breaking a bone.

Pettitte will be making his 43rd postseason start. Pettitte is 19-10 with a 3.83 ERA in his playoff career.
