Rangers Vs. Yankees, ALCS Game 4: Brett Gardner Restores Narrow Lead

The Yankees were able to chase Tommy Hunter from the game with just one out and the bases loaded in the bottom of the fourth. In came lefty Derek Holland, and though Holland did about the best he could with the situation, the Yankees managed to take a 3-2 lead.

Brett Gardner grounded a ball to Elvis Andrus' right that looked like it would sneak into the outfield for a base hit. Andrus, though, came up with a diving stop, and threw to third base just in time to beat Robinson Cano to the bag. That fielder's choice scored Alex Rodriguez.

The next batter - Francisco Cervelli - struck out looking on a fastball, stranding two runners.
