Bombers bits

• Second baseman Brian Roberts has hit safely in four consecutive games. During that span he has gone 5-for-15 with a walk and a home run.

• Tuesday night's shutout marked the second time this season that the New York offense has been blanked, the first coming on April 5 in Toronto. Entering Wednesday's series finale, the Yankees are 10-3 since the start of 2013 in games immediately following a shutout.

• Teixeira, out of the lineup for a third consecutive day on Wednesday, will meet with his surgeon on Thursday.

"It's still a little bit sore, so we didn't put him in there today," Girardi said. "There's still more improvement, but he still feels it, so we thought it was in his best interest just to give him another day, which probably give him two more [because of Thursday's off-day]."

• Shortstop Derek Jeter was given a normal day of rest on Wednesday to combine with Thursday's day off. The Yankees play in 43 of the next 45 days leading up to the All-Star break.
