That two-run homer by Vladimir Guerrero was the record 26th career long ball that Andy Pettitte has allowed in the postseason. Tom Glavine and Catfish Hunter are tied for second with 21 postseason homers allowed.

According to Mark Simon of ESPN Stats & Information, Pettitte allowed only six home runs in 94 2/3 innings on the road this season, a rate of 0.57 homers per nine innings. That was the third-lowest ratio in the AL this season among pitchers who faced at least 250 batters on the road.
