Gardner went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's win over the Phillies.

Gardner took Philadelphia starter Jake Arrieta deep in the third inning to stake the Yankees to a lead that they did not relinquish. Per Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News, the blast was only the second opposite-field homer of Gardner's 13-year major-league career. The 36-year-old has two homers this season but is slashing a meek .105/.261/.421.
