Bombers bits

• The Yankees have not drawn a walk in their last three games entering Friday's action. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it matches their most consecutive games without a walk since 1916 (also June 12-14, 1991, when they lost all three contests).

"That's unusual for our club," Girardi said. "I think the Mets threw a lot of strikes against us. Hopefully that changes tonight and we get back to doing some of those things."

• The Yankees and Blue Jays will make up their May 19 rainout at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday, Aug. 20, as the first game of a day-night doubleheader. The first game will start at 1:05 p.m. ET and the second game will start at 7:05 p.m.

• On this date in 1948, a Memorial Day crowd of 62,626 watched starter Spec Shea allow just two singles to Washington. Four Yankees -- Yogi Berra, Charlie Keller, Bobby Brown and George McQuinn -- each contributed three hits as the Yanks won, 10-0.
