Not long ago, Curtis Granderson couldn’t hit lefties.
Now, he owns them.
Granderson drilled an 82 mph Chris Capuano slider into the right-field seats to give the Yanks a 5-3 lead in the sixth inning of Saturday’s Subway Series.
Granderson leads the majors with eight homers off of lefties. He’s hit them in an astounding 47 at-bats.
Overall, he has 15 homers and 33 RBI.
Alex Rodriguez followed with a drive just over the wall in left to put the Yanks up 6-3.
Pedro Beato came on in relief of Capuano.
The Yanks hit four homers off of Capuano on Saturday night. Russell Martin and Mark Teixeira each had two-run homers.
