New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte left Thursday's game against Seattle in the fifth inning with a tight left trapezius muscle.

After Pettitte struck out Seattle's Kyle Seager on a 77 mph slider for the second out in the fifth, Yankees manager Joe Girardi, pitching coach Larry Rothschild and trainer Mark Littlefield all visited him on the mound. After a brief meeting, Pettitte left the game after throwing just 79 pitches with the Yankees down 2-1.
