Gardner’s grand slam keys Yankees win over Boston

NEW YORK — Coming off yesterday’s feel good win over the Red Sox last night, the Yankees hoped to keep the momentum going in tonight’s series finale. With the bases loaded, and New York down 3-1 in the seventh, Brett Gardner made sure it happened.

Facing Ryan Brasier, the Yankee left fielder clubbed his 100th career home run, with an emphatic grand slam into the stands in right field to give the Bombers the lead for good, 5-3.

Things weren’t looking good early for Aaron Boone’s squad as the rival Red Sox jumped on starter J.A. Happ, scoring in the game’s first two innings.

In the opening frame, usual suspect J.D. Martinez knocked in a solo shot for his fourth home run of the year. Christian Vazquez then hit one of the two-run variety in the very inning to give his squad an early 3-0 lead.

New York finally got to starter Nathan Eovaldi in the fourth inning, with Clint Frazier’s first RBI-double of the year. The Yankee DH got three hits tonight, raising his average to .333 in the young season.

In the seventh, Frazier, Mika Tauchman, and Austin Romine all got on base against Brandon Workman, which set-up Gardner’s go-ahead hit against the new pitcher Brasier.

It was then smooth sailing in the eight and ninth, respectively, with Adam Ottavino pitching the former and Aroldis Chapman closing it out for his third save of the year.

The Yankees look to keep the momentum going as the home stand continues with Domingo German facing Homer Bailey and the Kansas City Royals tomorrow at 6:35.

Current Yankees Record: 8-9
