The two teams will play a pair of games beginning at 5:05pm. It may be the only two games Gardner plays before returning to New York.
He says the priority is getting timing back at the plate. Gardner hasn't seen live pitching in almost three weeks. He's been on the disabled list with a strained right elbow since April 17th.
Gardner laughed when asked if he could draw the same kind of crowd Andy Pettitte did on Sunday. 13,584 came to Frontier Field to watch the Yankee legend pitch. However, Gardner said he's always liked playing in Rochester.
Gardner can't wait to re-join his Yankee teammates. Although Joe Girardi said on Sunday Gardner would play 2-3 games in Rochester, Gardner only mentioned being in town for two.
