Bombers bits

• Right-hander David Phelps (right elbow inflammation) is continuing to play catch. He will remain in New York when the club goes on the road this week and will be evaluated after the trip.

• On this date in 1988, the Yankees trailed the Athletics, 6-2, heading to the bottom of the ninth inning in the Bronx. Seven singles and a three-run Ken Phelps homer later, the Yankees rallied for a 7-6 walk-off win. Rickey Henderson delivered the winning hit, driving in Luis Aguayo with a single to left field off Gene Nelson.
