Struggling Brett Gardner gets key hit in Yankees’ winBrett Gardner said he probably understands the frustrations of the game of baseball better than most, which is why the Yankees veteran is hoping he can build upon his latest offensive breakthrough. “It’s one of those things that when things aren’t going good, they just seem to continue to pile on and sometimes you’re not sure if you’ll find your way out of it or not,” Gardner said after the win. Batting .191 so far this season with just three home runs and 13 RBIs after Friday night, Gardner has not been able to contribute as he once did. The Yankees have been thin in the outfield since center fielder Aaron Hicks suffered a season-ending wrist injury, for which he underwent surgery at the end of May. Plus, Miguel Andujar has been diagnosed with a left wrist strain, which he sustained in the series-opener against the Mariners on Tuesdaynight.
