Pettitte wrapped up his career in fine fashion, allowing one run and five hits in a complete-game 2-1 victory in Houston on Saturday.

He ends his career with a 256-153 record with a 3.85 ERA and 26 complete games in 521 career starts.

Pettitte will retire after this season.

The team announced Pettitte's decision in a news release Friday, hours before opening its final homestand of the season. The 41-year-old left-hander says he has exhausted himself mentally and physically and knows the time is right.

Pettitte was brilliant in Tuesday's 7-1 win over the Jays.

Pettitte (10-9) improved to 7-1 in his past eight starts against Toronto and is 25-13 in 46 games against them with seven scoreless innings.

Pettitte allowed one run and four hits in six innings, earning the win in Thursday's 5-3 victory over Toronto.

Pettitte appears to have found his form, posting a 0.71 ERA in winning back-to-back starts.

Pettitte allowed three unearned runs and six hits in 6 2-3 innings, earning the win during Friday's 10-3 victory at Boston.

Pettitte's victory was his first since beating Kansas City on July 11. He has gone 0-3 with a 5.47 ERA in his previous five starts.

Pettitte allowed one run in 4 1-3 innings in a 5-4 win over Detroit on Sunday.

Foes are hitting .297 off Pettitte, one of baseball's worst pitchers this year.

Pettitte matched season-worsts by allowing seven runs and 11 hits over a season-low 2 2-3 innings of New York's 8-1 road loss to the White Sox on Monday.

Pettitte is 0-3 in four starts since the All-Star break with a 6.14 ERA.

Pettitte suffered his second straight loss in the Yankees' 3-1 defeat at Texas on Wednesday.

It was a hard-luck loss as the left-hander yielded just two runs in six innings. He's received 12 runs of support in his eight losses this season.

Pettitte (7-6) settled down after another shaky first inning, throwing 5 2-3 innings of four-run ball in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Royals.

He's won consecutive starts for the first time since April.

Pettitte stopped the Orioles once again, Eduardo Nunez returned with a go-ahead hit and the New York Yankees beat Baltimore 5-4 Saturday for their season-high sixth straight win.

The 41-year-old Pettitte earned his 251st win, tying Hall of Famer Bob Gibson for 44th place on the all-time list.
