After being blown out by the Philadelphia Phillies two days ago 0-15, the New York Yankees returned with a vengeance. Featuring a majority of their starters, the Yankees overcame Philadelphia 4-0, with all of their runs coming from a Brett Gardner grand slam.
In the second inning, he squeaked a line drive to right field over the fence, driving in Gleyber Torres, Gary Sanchez, and Miguel Andujar.
Gardner recently signed a two-year deal with the Yankees that include a club option for the 2022 season. With his job protected, for the most part, Gardy can continue with his normal protocols. Considering left-fielder Clint Frazier has successfully taken over the starting job, Gardner will be a supplemental piece, filling in for injured players or inconsistencies.
However, his grand slam on Sunday afternoon was exciting, proving he still has some juice left in the tank.
