Poor pitching spoils a big offensive night as the Yankees drop rubber-match in Texas

A rough night for Yankees pitching spoiled another offensive outburst, as the Rangers picked up a 12-10 win on Wednesday night in Arlington. Wednesday also marks the first time that the Yankees have lost a series since they lost two out of three against the Red Sox at Fenway in early April. Despite the loss, the offense continues to roll. The Yankees totaled 14 hits and four home runs in the losing effort.

Brett Gardner Named American League Player of the Week

Following a 13-26 week at the plate (.500) with a .581 on base percentage, and an .885 slugging percentage, Brett Gardner was rewarded with the American League Player of the Week honors. Gardner also slugged two home runs, four doubles and drove in nine runs. This is Brett Garnder’s third Player of the Week award in his career as he is on a tear at the plate. On the season Brett Gardner is hitting to a slash line of .300/.373/.493 with an OPS of .866. He has nine home runs, 39 RBIs, 19 doubles, three triples and 15 stolen bases in 18 attempts.
