NEW YORK -- The Bombers beat the Clippers, 2-1, in the Old-Timers’ Day game, which lasted five innings, on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

Charlie Hayes put the Clippers ahead 1-0 with a sacrifice fly in the second, but the Bombers countered with a two-run single off the bat of Rickey Henderson in the third and never looked back.

Other highlights:

• Pat Kelly was robbed of an extra-base hit by Todd Greene, who made a fabulous over-the-shoulder catch in left. Greene then chest-bumped the Rays' bullpen catcher.

• After David Wells jokingly threw over the head off Paul O’Neill, O’Neill responded with a booming single off the right-field wall.

• Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez pitched ... and played shortstop.
