That's not gerrymandering.

Why did the Dems win the House but lose a couple votes in the Senate?

Because the GOP cheated*, lied and spent millions to keep control of the senate. They had only so many resources, and the choice was made for the senate as it was a easier win, and more important for them in their race to control SCOTUS.

* In Texas, if you voted straight Democrat your vote went to Cruz, not Beto. Texas knew this full well, but didnt fix it, as it favoured Cruz. And then there's Fla & GA.
