Bombers bits

•  Jacoby Ellsbury's RBI single Wednesday extended his hitting streak to 15 games, marking the longest active streak in the Majors and the fourth longest in the American League this season.

• On this date in 2003, six Astros pitchers -- Roy Oswalt, Peter Munro, Kirk Saarloos, Brad Lidge, Octavio Dotel and Billy Wagner -- combine on a no-hitter as the Astros blank the Yankees, 8-0, at Yankee Stadium. It marked the first time that the Yankees had been no-hit at home since 1952, when the Tigers' Virgil Trucks accomplished the feat.
