Worth noting

• David Robertson, who suffered a slight left hamstring pull in completing a 1-2-3 inning Wednesday night against Houston, played catch on Saturday and Sunday and expects to be available Tuesday night when the Yankees open a three-game series in Colorado.

"I don't see why I wouldn't be ready," said Robertson, whose return will not require a roster move.

• Since the beginning of the 2008 season, the Yankees are 28-9 in games after being shut out, the latest being their 4-2 win over the A's on Saturday.

• Ichiro Suzuki entered Sunday with more career hits against Oakland (308) that any player since the franchise moved to the Bay Area in 1968, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Suzuki went 0-for-4 Saturday but came into Sunday's game still hitting .359 in his last seven games, raising his average 66 points to .266.
