Two old teammates share a familiar scene in the Bronx

Andy Pettitte only wishes he had outings as easy and as swift in his career as the one he threw Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

The former Yankees hurler needed just one pitch -- we'll call it a strike, to be fair -- to draw a rousing ovation from the Game 2 New York crowd while former teammate Jorge Posada set up behind the plate, just like old times.

A familiar face on the mound, in a familiar setting. The only thing peculiar about it was the empty batter's box.
