Gardner, Sabathia lead Yanks over Rays 3-2, avoid sweep

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Yankees manager Joe Girardi couldn't help but smile when talking about 5-foot-11 Brett Gardner going deep again and 6-foot-7 Aaron Judge making an unbelievable diving catch.

Gardner hit his eighth home run, one more than this 2016 total, and CC Sabathia won consecutive starts for the first time in nearly a year to help New York beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 Sunday and avoid a three-game sweep.

Didi Gregorius had an RBI single in the second for the second of his four hits and Gardner followed with his drive to right. All of Gardner's home runs have come in a 20-game span starting April 19.
