Gardner, Yankees snap skid with 12-11win at Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Brett Gardner had four hits to go with a tremendous sliding catch and the New York Yankees held on for a 12-11 victory at Texas on Tuesday night in spite of J.P. Arencibia’s seven RBIs.

Gardner had a leadoff homer and two doubles, and he reached base twice in a seven-run sixth that put the Yankees ahead to stay.

He started the inning with a double and scored on Carlos Beltran’s two run-single, then reached on a three-base error that deflected off two outfielders and sent home the rally’s final run.

Arencibia homered twice and drove in seven runs for Texas, including a grand slam. He also had two doubles to be the first Rangers player with four extra-base hits since Josh Hamilton’s four-homer game at Baltimore on May 8, 2012.

The last player with at least seven RBIs in a loss was Jonathan Lucroy in 2012, when Milwaukee fell to the Cubs, STATS said.
