Granderson helps Yankees sink Rays

Curtis Granderson launched two homers in an 8-6 victory over the Rays, including a three-run homer in the sixth to break a 4-4 tie.

Best of All: Wins against the Rays this time of year are huge. The Yankees expanded their lead to one-and-a-half games. 

Granderson has been one of the hottest Yankees in September. He now leads the team with six homers and 17 RBIs this month.

Ivan Nova nearly earned his first quality start, but was yanked before getting the last out of the sixth.

Worst of All: Mariano Rivera allowed at least one run in his second straight outing. September is already his worst month of the season in terms of earned runs allowed.

Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez and Robinson Cano combined to go for 0-for-13. Umm?

Coming Up: The Yankees have three more to play against the Rays. At least they’re at home.
