VIDEO: Brett Gardner Launches Astounding 26th Homer of the Season to Extend Yankees Lead

Brett Gardner sees your juiced baseballs, and raises you one. The Yankees veteran outfielder is 36 years old and once thought to be the odd man out in a crowded position in the Bronx. Instead, he's played admirably while other Yankees outfielders have missed significant time with injury. He now has 26 home runs on the year, and the Yanks are one step closer to clinching the AL East.

Gardner's solo bomb didn't just scrape over the wall, that was several rows deep. It's a familiar sight for Yankees fans this season, as he's been one of their more consistent power threats lower in the lineup.
