Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in a Game 5 ALDS victory over the Indians on Wednesday.
Gardner and Didi Gregorius combined for six of the Yankees' eight hits, or 75 percent if you're into that sort of thing. Gregorius provided the pop, but Gardner had arguably the biggest hit of the night. In the top of the ninth facing Cody Allen, he fouled off several tough pitches, and on the 12th pitch of the at-bat he lined a two-run single to give the Yankees a 5-2 lead that Cleveland wasn't going to come back from. The Yankees are loaded in young talent, but veterans who grind out plate appearances like Gardner does are a key reason why they're going to be playing in the ALCS starting Friday. Oct 12 - 12:03 AM
