Derek Jeter was one of eight Yankees with at least two hits tonight. Curtis Granderson hit two home runs, Brett Gardner stole two bases and CC Sabathia pitched seven scoreless innings in a 9-2 win in Cleveland. Francisco Cervelli wasn’t only the lone Yankees starter without a hit, he was the lone Yankees starter without two hits. Jeter moved within four of career hit No. 3,000 and Granderson surpassed last year’s home run total with his 24th and 25th of the season. Sabathia picked up his Major League-best 12th win of the season and has been absolutely dominant in his past three starts (22.2 innings, one run, 33 strikeouts).
