Bombers bits

• Alex Rodriguez (broken left hand) and Andy Pettitte (fractured left fibula) were scheduled to have X-rays performed on their respective injuries before Sunday's game. Both players are expected back in September. Rodriguez kept his arm in shape on Sunday by throwing from third base.

• Yankees right-hander David Robertson is expecting to travel on the club's road trip to Chicago and Cleveland until he hears any news from his wife, Erin, who is expecting the couple's first child. Erin's due date is Sunday.

• The Yankees were anticipating a late -- or early -- arrival in Chicago after Sunday's nationally televised game. Girardi said that a 5 a.m. CT arrival was likely but remarked, "At least we get an hour," referring to the time change.

• On this date in 2000, the Yankees recorded three sacrifice flies in the same inning (Jorge Posada, Scott Brosius and Clay Bellinger) against the Angels thanks to Ron Gant's third-inning error. The Yankees won, 9-1.
