Brett Gardner’s late-game heroics on Saturday gave the Yankees a 3–2 win over the Rays in New York.

Gardner first tied the game at 2–2 with an infield single in the seventh, then later won it with a solo shot. He took a 91 mph heater on 3-1 from Erasmo Ramirez deep into the seats in right.

The Yankees have now won two straight games and sit at 7–9 on the young season. It was Gardner’s second career walk-off home run.
