MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Andy Pettitte has broken Whitey Ford's record for career strikeouts by a New York Yankees pitcher.
Pettitte struck out Justin Morneau in the fifth inning against Minnesota on Monday night to give him 1,958 for his career. Ford has held the mark since he retired in 1967.
Pettitte entered the game needing two strikeouts to break the record. He fanned Clete Thomas in the second inning to tie it, then got Morneau swinging in the fifth.
The three-time All-Star broke into the big leagues with the Yankees in 1995 and has spent all but three of his 18 seasons in pinstripes.
