Bombers bits

• Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda is inching back toward game action. Pineda threw a 25-pitch bullpen session on Friday at the club's complex in Tampa, Fla., and reported no issues. His best-case scenario is a big league return in mid-August.

• On this date in 1951, Allie Reynolds no-hit the Indians in a 1-0 Yankees victory against Bob Feller at Cleveland's Municipal Stadium. It is the first of two no-hitters that year for Reynolds, who also no-hit the Red Sox on Sept. 28 in the first game of a doubleheader.
