ST. Keanu Neal Jersey . LOUIS -- Brett Gardners leaping catch in the 11th inning gave the New York Yankees life. Patient at-bats and their first hit since the fifth inning put them over the top. "I just tried to get back there as fast as I could," Gardner said of his catch at the top of the left field wall that denied Yadier Molina of at least extra bases and perhaps a game-ending two-run homer in the Yankees 6-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in 12 innings Monday. "It was an easy play, just go back and make sure I get the ball in the glove before my back hits the wall." Brian Roberts bases loaded single was the go-ahead hit in a three-run 12th fueled by two walks and a hit batter. The Yankees won for the fourth time in extra innings on the season, three of them in the last six games. "Its a grind," Gardner said. "But weve been playing pretty well and we seem to really stay focused." Pinch-hitter Alfonso Soriano and Brendan Ryan each added an RBI for the Yankees, who took the opener of a three-game interleague series for their third straight win. Alfredo Aceves (1-2) worked two scoreless innings and David Robertson earned his 11th save in 12 chances. "At that point, youre just trying to get the guy in," Roberts said. "You need to be selective and find ways to win." Jon Jay had an RBI double in the 12th for the Cardinals, who lost for the third time in 12 games. "Just a really bad day," reliever Randy Choate said. "I felt fine coming in, just didnt have good stuff." A standing-room crowd of 47,311, the third-largest at 9-year-old Busch Stadium, showed up to see an opponent making only its second appearance in St. Louis since losing to the Cardinals in the 1964 World Series. The enthusiasm did not appear to be dampened by a 61-minute weather delay -- for rain that did not materialize -- before the first pitch. Cardinals pitchers retired 20 of 21 batters before the 12th, when Choate (0-2) faced five batters and four reached safely. Five Yankees relievers were stingy, too, permitting two hits in seven innings. "It comes down to doing little things and getting big hits," St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. "Thats no secret. We had a couple of opportunities to get the big hit. You cant do it all the time." Jacoby Ellsbury got the rally started when he walked to lead off the inning and stole second, a call upheld after Matheny challenged. After coming through, Roberts is 3 for 6 in extra innings. "Another big hit for us," manager Joe Girardi said. "I thought the bottom of the lineup was extremely productive." Molina slammed his helmet in frustration after Gardner came down with his drive at the top of the fence with a runner on and one out in the 11th. Derek Jeter got a standing ovation before his first at-bat, and thousands stood again when he singled, although they also roared when he took a called third strike to end the eighth against Carlos Martinez after Molinas pinpoint throw on Gardner attempting to steal. Michael Wacha dealt with a rain delay for the fourth time in his 11 starts -- total idle time of 4 hours, 52 minutes. After nine pitches the Yankees had the lead, with a walk by Gardner and a single by Jeter setting up Ellsburys RBI single. The first three batters reached in a two-run fifth, too, with Kelly Johnsons RBI single and Gardners sacrifice fly putting the Yankees up 3-1. New York rookie starter Chase Whitley was vulnerable early, too. The Cardinals needed two at-bats to tie it in the first when Matt Carpenter tripled off the right-field wall and Kolten Wong doubled, but they missed a chance for more when Wong overslid third and was caught stealing for the first time in eight attempts this season. Whitley qualified for a win for the first time in three career starts, but left with the bases loaded and none out in the sixth before the Cardinals tied it against Preston Claiborne. Allen Craig had an RBI groundout and Jhonny Peralta followed with a sacrifice fly. Wacha bounced back after taking a foul liner off his elbow while sitting in the dugout his last time out, giving up three runs on four hits in seven innings. He had a season-low two strikeouts, the first against Ellsbury leading off the sixth. NOTES: In a pregame ceremony, Jeter received Stan Musial cuff links and a $10,000 check for the captains Turn 2 Foundation. ... The Cardinals also paid tribute to their 1964 team. ... Whitley is the first Yankees pitcher to make his first three career starts on the road since Ramiro Mendoza made four in a row in 1996. ... Cardinals RHP Lance Lynn (5-2, 3.60 ERA) opposes David Phelps (1-1, 3.18) on Tuesday night. Lynn is 1-3 with a 5.08 ERA in six career interleague starts. ... Wacha hasnt permitted more than three runs in any of his starts. Ricardo Allen Jersey . The Red Wings hadnt played the night before. The Boston Bruins had. A month from now, or two months from now, it doesnt matter. But right now it does matter, when you start and you play back to back, its wear and tear on you for sure, Babcock said. Andy Levitre Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline is drawing closer and teams will be deciding on whether to buy or sell while figuring out which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. http://www.falconsapparelsshop.com/takkarist-mckinley-falcons-jersey-c-52/ . Not that he was complaining. Davis had 13 points, nine rebounds and a career-high eight blocks, and the New Orleans Pelicans emphatically snapped a three-game skid with a 135-98 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.SAN FRANCISCO - Nori Aoki is offering a bold challenge to World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner, one of his new San Francisco Giants teammates.Ive heard that Madison likes to wrestle, I think Im going to initiate the wrestling, the left fielder joked Tuesday.Aoki brings more than just a big personality and sense of humour to the World Series champions. Manager Bruce Bochy is projecting him as the teams starting left fielder, while noting Aokis versatility allows him to fill in for Angel Pagan in centre field and Hunter Pence in right as needed. Pagan will begin spring training next month as the leadoff hitter, another job Aoki can handle with his speed and ability to steal bases.Of course Id like to hit at the top of the order but thats going to be his decision, Aoki said, speaking through regular interpreter Kosuke Inaji, who joins him in the move to the Bay Area.Aoki finalized his $4.7 million, one-year contract Monday and was formally introduced a day later at AT&T Park. Both sides appear hopeful he could stick around beyond this season.Bochy figures Aoki might reconsider the wrestling match once he lines up next to the 6-foot-5, 235-pound Bumgarner.That may be our opening day deal, to have these two get in the ring. That would be entertaining, I will say, speed against bulk, Bochy said. I dont know if hell stay with that comment once he stands next to Madison. He may back off that one.Aoki played last season with Kansas City, which lost the World Series to the Giants in seven games.Ive always liked the city of San Francisco but not only that Ive always had admiration for the Giants and the history theyve had, Aoki said. Having played against them the last three years, they played together as a team. They have a team that has a chance to play for a championship each year.One order of business off the field will be doing something nice for bench coach Ron Wotus, who has previously worn Aokis new No. 23 — through three World Series championship runs the past five years, too.Twenty-three is a lucky number to me, Aoki said. I know that one of the coaches wears No. 23. I heard he likes to play golf, maybe I can buy him some golf cllubs and maybe even a Rolex. Derrick Shelby Jersey. Given the departure of switch-hitting slugger Pablo Sandoval to Boston last fall, San Franciscos brass realized that without that power, the Giants might have to find creative ways to score runs with aggressive baserunning and contributions from throughout the lineup to fill Panda void.Bochy said Aoki is a tough out and has the ability to hit to all fields and is equally as reliable on defence. Outfielder Gregor Blanco, who reached agreement on a $7.5 million, two-year contract Sunday, will come off the bench and spell players for days off.He kind of reminds of Pablo a little bit, hes not going to hit the home runs like Pablo, Bochy said of Aoki. We acquired him to play.Aoki, 33, receives a $4 million base salary this year, and the Giants have a $5.5 million option for 2016 with a $700,000 buyout. The option would become mutual if Aoki has 550 plate appearances this year, and he would receive the buyout if he exercises the option and the team declines.Aoki can earn an additional $1.5 million in performance bonuses each year based on plate appearances: $100,000 each for 400, 425, 450, 475 and 500; and $250,000 apiece for 525, 550, 575 and 600. The team will release him at the end of the contract, making him a free agent again.Aoki hit .285 with a home run, six triples, 22 doubles and 43 RBIs over 132 games in his lone season with the Royals after two in Milwaukee. He also stole 17 bases.We know our clubhouse is under construction but our roster is getting closer and closer to being set, assistant general manager Bobby Evans said. We see Nori as a tremendous athlete, a tremendous presence.The Giants have yet to make a corresponding move to add Aoki to the 40-man roster, preferring to use the time they have before the contract is filed with Major League Baseball. Sabean was sorry to miss Aokis introductory news conference; he is in Arizona with a respiratory condition and doctors advised him not to fly for a few days.Overall we know its going to be difficult to replace Sandoval, period, Sabean said. Every team develops its own identity. Its just going to be a different look.
