Bombers bits

• Outfielder Brett Gardner will travel with the Yankees on their seven-game road trip beginning Monday in Minnesota, but he remains on the disabled list and Girardi would not say when the Yankees plan to activate him for use in pinch-running situations.

• Girardi did not expect relievers Derek Lowe and Freddy Garcia to be available out of the bullpen Sunday at Yankee Stadium after each provided length in Saturday's 10-9 win in 14 innings. Lowe threw 2 2/3 innings, while Garcia went three-plus.

• Yankees rookies will travel in style Sunday, with the team celebrating the annual rookie dress-up day, sending the rookies to Minnesota in "Spaceballs" inspired "Star Wars" gear and oversized Darth Vader helmets.
