Grandy fuels victory with 3rd HR in 2 days

Through 254 at-bats, Curtis Granderson had seven homers. In his last seven at-bats, he has three. After two solo shots yesterday, Grandy wacked a game-winning two-run homer in the eighth off Jake Westbrook to put Javier Vazquez on the winning end of a 3-2 game.

Best of All: It’s about time Granderson’s bat has gotten a jolt. Missing most of May didn’t help, but now it looks like he has some fire in him as he’s riding a six-game hitting streak.

Nick Swisher is still hitting over .300, and he hit his 18th homer of the year in the fourth frame.

Vazquez put together a quality start after his one bad outing in recent memory. Plus, the bullpen took care of business in the eighth and ninth innings.

Worst of All: The Yankees managed only four hits off Westbrook.

Brett Gardner is really slumping. He’s fallen from a .319 BA on July 4 to .295 tonight. Where’d the good Gardy go?

Coming Up: Game 2 is same time, same place. CC Sabathia on the hill against Josh Tomlin making his major league debut.
