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