NEW YORK -- As the Yankees' longest-tenured player, Brett Gardner has the luxury of calling upon experiences that predate the current Yankee Stadium, a rarity in the clubhouse these days. One of those memories crossed the outfielder's mind after Wednesday's 9-6 victory over the Red Sox, his finest performance of the season to date. "I remember my rookie year, standing next to [Alex Rodriguez] and hearing him do an interview," Gardner said. "This is at the old stadium, in '08. I think he struck out four times that night, and I remember him saying, 'That's one good thing about baseball; we get a chance to come back here and redeem ourselves tomorrow.' I never forgot that."
