Move over, Jose Bautista.

Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson hit two home runs on Sunday night to take over the MLB home run lead. Granderson now has 38, one more than Bautista.

Granderson blasted a 1-0 pitch from lefty Brian Matusz 418 over the right field wall for a three-run homer in the top of the third of the Yankees-O's game.

He put another one over the wall in right in the top of the seventh to take the lead from Bautista. Sunday night marks Granderson's 11th career multi-homer game and his fourth of the season.

Teammate Mark Teixeira is second on the team with 35.

Granderson, by the way, continues to maintain that he isn't a home run hitter.
