Cozart took third on Drew Stubbs' sacrifice but was stranded when Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips struck out. After allowing Ryan Hanigan's leadoff single in the third, Pettitte struck out the side.
"You knew that we've been struggling," Pettitte said. "Like I tell these young guys, big league Ws are precious. ... I feel like what I do is pretty good, separating myself from others, is mentally I feel like I'm extremely strong."
NOTES: A day after Donna Summer's death, her rendition of "God Bless America" was played during the seventh-inning stretch. ...
