Curtis Granderson hit his eighth home run in the fourth inning on Sunday, but Austin Jackson nearly robbed his center field counterpart of the long ball.

Jackson jumped up at the part of the wall where the Yankees bullpen and the right-field seats meet and had the ball in his glove, but as he tried to bring the ball back in, his arm bumped into the net separating the seats and the bullpen and the ball popped out of his glove.

Granderson now has eight homers and 16 RBIs, and his two RBIs on Sunday have helped the Yankees to a 3-1 lead.
