Brett Gardner's outstanding diving catch to end the eighth inning and rob Elvis Andrus of a sure double looks a lot better to Yankees fans after their team came back from a 4-3 deficit in the top of the ninth to beat the Rangers, 5-4. Comebacks have been rare for the weak-hitting Yankees this season—especially with the bottom of the order coming up and down one — so any runs the Rangers could have tacked on to their lead would have greatly diminished just about any chance of a come-from-behind win Tuesday night. After Gardner's catch kept the Yankees' hopes alive, Brent Lillibridge — recently called up to the Yanks to play a position A-Rod was slated to handle by now — atoned for a costly error earlier at third by driving home Eduardo Nunez for the winning run in front of 42,000 stunned fans at Rangers Ballpark.
