Brett Gardner lined a tying home run with one out in the New York ninth off closer Matt Bush.
Often playfully hoisted by Gregorius in the dugout to high-five Aaron Judge after the slugger’s home runs, the diminutive Torreyes wound up on the shoulders of his teammates.
He dived to his left to snag Shin-Soo Choo’s grounder and threw to second from his knees to start an inning-ending double play in the third inning, then made a backhand stab, spun and beat Elvis Andrus with a two-hop throw to first leading off the seventh.
The Darvish-Tanaka duel didn’t disappoint the big crowd in the Bronx or the national television audience tuned in Saturday morning back in their homeland.
Rangers: LHP Martin Perez ripped a fingernail off his left thumb and broke the tip of the bone in an accident at his New York hotel Thursday night.
