• The Yankees entered Wednesday having played 25 games since Aug. 15 without winning consecutive contests. That marks their longest such stretch since a 31-game run from Aug. 20-Sept. 22, 1991. They went 9-22 over that span.

• The Double-A Trenton Thunder have advanced to the Eastern League finals for the fourth time in the last six years. They trail the Akron Aeros, 1-0, in the best-of-five series.

• On this date in 1996, Bernie Williams homered from both sides of the plate and drove in eight runs in the Yankees' 12-3 win at Tiger Stadium.
