Bombers' bits

• General manager Brian Cashman offered no optimism Friday, when asked about Mark Teixeira and his Grade 1 left calf strain.

"It's getting treatment," Cashman said. "I won't say it's getting better, but it's getting treatment."

• Manager Joe Girardi made batting practice optional on Friday, something usually reserved for weekend day games after night games. Girardi said it was a result of a late arrival in New York after Thursday's game in Boston, but he anticipated most hitters would still hit, which they did.
