For most of the game, the Yankees couldn’t get anything going against Kyle Hendricks and the Chicago Cubs bullpen. And with two outs in the ninth, the Yankees were about to take their first loss against the World Series Champions. However, Brett Gardner saved the Yankees from a disastrous loss with a clutch home run, and eventually led the Yankees to a 3-2 win at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois.
All three runs came off the bat of Gardner in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Michael Pineda went six innings, giving up two runs on three hits while striking out six. Chasen Shreve pitched a scoreless inning, Holder pitched a scoreless inning and Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth.
