New York Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner possibly just saved the Bombers’ season with his sensational grab to secure a victory.
Just when you think the New York Yankees are down and out, they show you exactly why you shouldn’t give up on this team just yet.
After Dellin Betances surrendered three runs to cut New York’s lead down to one (7-6) with the bases loaded and just one out, the Toronto Blue Jays seemed as though they were about to bury any hope fans had left.
Manager Joe Girardi removed his closer from the contest, he got a strikeout from Blake Parker and then the catch heard all around baseball courtesy of Brett Gardner sealed the deal.
In what looked like a Justin Smoak go-ahead grand slam off the bat, Gardner used up every inch of the ballpark to race back and snowcone a Yankees’ victory.
Catch of the year? Although his last catch in Anaheim might be, this was as close to a second as you can get.
