Brett Gardner went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

The Yankees had just one hit to their credit (a dunk single by Chase Headley) against Felix Hernandez until Gardner added to the total in emphatic fashion in the sixth inning, pulling a no-doubter to right to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead. Gardner has been incredibly hot-and-cold this season and it looks like he might be heating up again, having gone 5-for-15 with three extra-base hits in his last three games.

The six RBI tied a career-high. Gardner knocked in his first run with a single in the sixth inning before slugging a grand slam against James Hoyt in the seventh. He finished his night with a sacrifice fly in the ninth. With 15 homers through 72 games, Gardner is only two homers away from matching his career-high.

Brett Gardner finished 0-for-4 against the Angels on Tuesday.

Gardner had an awesome May, but he's come crashing down pretty good with a .231/.282/.359 line in 78 at-bats this month. He'll still be worth using in mixed leagues for as long as he's playing regularly and batting leadoff, but he could lose at-bats once Jacoby Ellsbury comes back.
Jun 20 - 11:02 PM

Brett Gardner went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

The home run was Gardner's 13th of the year, and he's well on his way to a career best after topping out at 17 during the 2014 season. He's also quietly near the top of the leaderboard in runs scored, having crossed the plate 41 times this year while hitting primarily atop the Yankees' lineup. The 33-year-old is hitting .266/.349/.512 in 53 games to date.

After going homerless in his first 18 games, Gardner has now gone deep 11 times since April 29.

It's already the third-highest homer total of Gardner's career. He hit 17 in 2014 and 16 in 2015, but he hasn't reached double figures in any other season. That's about to change, obviously.

Brett Gardner hit his sixth homer and walked Monday in the Yankees' 10-4 victory over the Reds.

Gardner spent most of April looking old and slow in the batter's box, yet here he is with six homers in his last nine games. Last year, he had seven homers in 148 games. Gardner's exit velocity for the season remains near the bottom of the league. One would think this homer spree wouldn't have any legs, but then one wouldn't have seen it coming in the first place.
May 8 - 11:40 PM

Brett Gardner is not in the Yankees' starting lineup for Sunday night's showdown against the Cubs.

The matchup against tough southpaw Jon Lester coupled with the return of Jacoby Ellsbury made this one an easy decision for manager Joe Girardi. Look for Gardner, who has been on a power binge recently, to be a weapon off the bench in this one.
