Power surge

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Yankees put up five runs in the top of the third on home runs by Curtis Granderson (No. 16, a three-run shot) and Robinson Cano (No. 8 with Alex Rodriguez aboard). It was a predictable result against Ervin Santana, against whom both Granderson and Cano came in with four home runs each. But considering the Yankees' recent struggles with runners in scoring position, it was a bit of a surprise. In fact, even with the two home runs the Yankees are only 1-for-4 w/RISP tonight; they wasted a double by Granderson in the first inning when both Rodriguez and Cano struck out, and stranded runners at the corners in the second when Eric Chavez hit into a double play.
