Granderson fuels Game 5 win, Yanks headed back to Texas trailing 3-2

Now this series just got a little more interesting. Curtis Granderson kept the second-inning rally going with an RBI single and then homered in the eighth to lead the Yankees to a 7-2 victory in Game 5. Now the series heads back to Texas for the two remaining games (if necessary).

Best of All: Granderson rode his hot September into October and is still hot. He was clearly the unofficial ALDS MVP and now he’s challenging Robinson Cano (he homered again today) for the ALCS MVP (that is, if the Yankees win).

CC Sabathia turned in a much better start than he did in Game 1, earning the victory on six innings pitched. He allowed 11 hits but worked out of trouble thanks to seven strikeouts and a couple of double plays.

Worst of All: Marcus Thames, Lance Berkman and Brett Gardner were hitless, but that’s about it.
