In his second outing since missing two months with a strained left groin, Pettitte (11-3) fell behind several hitters and had trouble putting others away. He gave up seven runs -- six earned -- and a season-high 10 hits in 3 1-3 innings.
He lasted only 75 pitches, not what the defending World Series champions had in mind as they try to get him stretched out for October. The left-hander came off the DL on Sunday in Baltimore and had an encouraging start, yielding one run and three hits in six innings.
Beckett (6-5) went 6 2-3 innings, giving up five runs and seven hits.
NOTES: Lowell was hit in the face by Granderson's bad-hop single to first in the fifth. He crumpled to the ground as manager Terry Francona and a trainer rushed out of the dugout, but the 2007 World Series MVP received a warm ovation as he rose to his feet and remained in the game -- temporarily. He was replaced by Lars Anderson in the sixth. ... The four home runs served up by Beckett were a season high. ... Derek Jeter extended his season-best hitting streak to 13 games.
