Same spot, same result.

For the third straight at-bat on Thursday, Curtis Granderson homered to right field. He has homered in the first, second and fourth innings, the latest shot making it 7-4 Yankees. He came out to the top step and waved his helmet after the third homer, as the fans were urging him for a curtain call.

Granderson now has six home runs on the season, and 10 RBIs.

It's the first time someone has hit three home runs in a game at the new Yankee Stadium, and the first time a Yankees has performed this feat since April 26, 2005, when it was done by Alex Rodriguez.
