The Yankees were exhaling after this one because A-Rod was OK. They didn’t plan to send him for X-rays because he could squeeze with the left hand that got drilled with a fastball in the eighth by Blake Wood.

“It didn’t hit him flush,” Joe Girardi said. “We got lucky. It was a scary moment. He’s such a big part of the ballclub.”

“It just got away,” Wood said. “It could’ve happened to anybody. It just happened to him in that spot. I was trying to throw a fastball in on his hands and it got up. I wasn’t happy with what happened, obviously.”

Rodriguez was disappointed he didn’t hit No. 600 at home, but now he wants to get it over with on the road. He said he will play Monday night in Cleveland. …

Phil Hughes gave up two more homers and has now allowed 15 — all at home.

“I’m making a lot of bad pitches here,” Hughes said. “I know I’m pitching a lot better on the road than I am here.” …

After reaching the 1,000-hit mark with a two-run double in the eighth, Robinson Cano said it was “one of my dreams come true.” He said he’ll think about 3,000 if he gets to 2,500. But he’s only 27 and he hit the 1,000 mark in fewer at-bats than any homegrown Yankee in the expansion era other than Derek Jeter and Don Mattingly. …

Joba Chamberlain was booed heavily after giving up a walk and a two-run homer in the eighth.

“It won’t be the last (time),” he said. “I understand I have to be better and I have to get better.”

His ERA is now 5.95. Girardi wouldn’t rule out giving the eighth-inning work to David Robertson at some point, saying, “If that’s something we have to do, it’s something we have to address.” …

Derek Jeter’s bat finally seems to be coming around again. He had three more hits, giving him five multihit games in the last seven. …

The Yankees won’t be getting Dan Haren. The Angels got him from Arizona. …

OK, that’s it for tonight.
