• Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes said that he expects to have about 20 friends and family members on hand for his start Monday at Angel Stadium, near where he grew up in Orange County, Calif. Hughes took the loss in the 2010 All-Star Game in Anaheim.

• The Yankees are the only team this year not to win a game in which they have not homered, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Yankees are 0-10 in such situations, the longest losing streak to start a season in franchise history. They were 0-8 to begin 2007, the previous record.


• On this date in 1933, the Yankees scored 12 runs in the eighth inning to defeat the White Sox, 15-11, at Yankee Stadium. The rally was capped by Bill Dickey's grand slam, and Lou Gehrig also drove in three runs.
