Back in time: Granderson goes deep in Opening Day win

A week ago, no one was sure Curtis Granderson would be healthy enough for Opening Day. Today he hit the go-ahead home run in a 6-3 Yankees win against the Tigers. He has homered on Opening Day three years in a row. The game was tied at 3 — Mark Teixeira had hit three-run homer — when Granderson went deep off Phil Coke in the bottom of the seventh. CC Sabathia still hasn’t gotten a win on Opening Day since coming to the Yankees, but he battled through six innings before the Yankees loaded bullpen handled the seventh, eighth and ninth — from Joba Chamberlain to Rafael Soriano to Mariano Rivera.
