Brett Gardner delivered his fourth homer in three games Wednesday against the Rangers.

It was a leadoff shot for the second straight night. Unfortunately, all four homers were solo blasts for Gardner, but that tends to happen with leadoff hitters. He's batting .311 with nine extra-base hits and 12 runs scored in 13 games since the break.

Brett Gardner continued his hot hitting on Tuesday, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, a home run and three runs scored in the Yankees' 12-11 victory over the Rangers.

Gardner is now 7-for-10 with three home runs and five runs scored in the first two games of the series. His three runs give him 67 runs scored for the year, sixth-most in the American League. The 30-year-old's hit parade has his triple slash line up to .283/.357/.455, and if the season ended today he would set personal bests in both slugging percentage and OPS.

Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 and hit his 11th and 12th homers Monday against the Rangers.

Gardner homered in consecutive at-bats off Yu Darvish, which is a pretty impressive feat. He's up to 12 homers this year, which is four more than he had ever hit before. Oddly, he has just 13 doubles after hitting 33 last year. Still, it's quite a season that he's having.

Brett Gardner's solo home run in the bottom of the third inning turned out to be the deciding run as the Yankees defeated the Rangers 2-1 after the game was called with one out in the bottom of the fifth.

Gardner took Yu Darvish out to right field, which allowed the Yankees to claim victory after the grounds crew had trouble applying the tarp and the rain kept coming down. Gardner joins the double-digit home run club for the first time in his career, now with 10, and sports a .278/.359/.428 slash line with 41 RBI and 17 stolen bases.

Brett Gardner drove in three runs in a win over the Reds on Saturday.

Gardner had a pair of sacrifice flies and an RBI single. The 30-year-old is now up to 40 RBI on the season. At this rate, he's going to destroy his career high of 52 RBI, which he had last year.

Brett Gardner blasted a leadoff homer in Sunday's loss to the Orioles.

Gardner launched the fourth pitch of the game from Kevin Gausman over the wall in right to get the Yankees on the board in a hurry. Sadly, that would be the extent of their offense on the rain-shortened night. He finishes the first half of the season hitting .279/.353/.424 with nine homers and 37 RBI.

Brett Gardner (abdominal strain) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Indians.

Gardner was held out of Wednesday's lineup with a lower abdominal strain, but he apparently feels well enough to give it a go Thursday. The Yankees need some good news right now and this certainly qualifies.
Jul 10 - 4:57 PM

Brett Gardner is out of the Yankees' lineup on Wednesday night due to a lower abdominal strain.

Gardner at first thought it was a hernia, but a doctor has ruled that out. Still, the speedy left fielder could be out of action for much of the rest of this week. Zoilo Almonte is starting in left on Wednesday against the Indians.
Jul 9 - 4:06 PM

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Twins.

It appears to be just a routine day of rest for the speedy left fielder. Alfonso Soriano will get the start in his place and hit eighth against opposing hurler Yohan Pino.
Jul 5 - 11:39 AM

Brett Gardner went 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jays.

It's Gardner's first four-hit game since June 9 last season. He had a chance for a fifth hit, but lined out to first base in his final at-bat in the eighth inning. Gardner has had a good year at the plate, as he has 28 RBI, 14 stolen bases, and he's slashing .290/.351/.412.
Jun 18 - 10:15 PM

Brett Gardner went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays.

Gardner's third-inning shot off of Marcus Stroman gave the Yankees the lead, one which they would not surrender. The Yankee outfielder now has home runs in back-to-back games, giving him six on the season. Gardner is currently slashing .280/.343/.405 with 28 RBI and 14 stolen bases.
Jun 17 - 10:21 PM

Brett Gardner hit a go-ahead solo home run in Thursday's win over the Athletics.

His solo shot off Drew Pomeranz in the third inning proved to be the difference in the game. While Gardner is mostly known for his speed, he's already up to four home runs this year, which puts him on pace to surpass his career-high of eight from last season.
Jun 5 - 4:42 PM

Brett Gardner went 1-for-4 and swiped a pair of bases in Friday's loss to the Twins.

The speedy outfielder also came around to score the Yankees lone run in the ballgame. The two stolen bases give him 13 on the season in his first 14 attempts. He has also left the yard three times, driven home 22 and scored 31 runs, delivering quite a bit of mixed league fantasy value.
May 30 - 10:24 PM

Brett Gardner went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in a win over the White Sox on Sunday.

With the bases loaded in the second inning, Gardner came through with a single to give the Yankees the early lead. He later came around to score on a sacrifice fly. It was all the run support Masahiro Tanaka would need. The outfielder is hitting .289/.359/.399 atop the Yankees lineup this season.
