Another fly ball to Curtis Granderson and another late-inning opportunity for Boone Logan. Redemption came to the Yankees in a 4-0 win against the Rays tonight at Tropicana Field. One night after Granderson lost a costly fly ball in the roof, he made a lead-saving catch in dead center field, crashing into the wall to keep two runs from scoring. One night after Logan committed a ruinous seventh-inning error, he struck out Casey Kotchman to strand two runners in the seventh, walking off the field with a fist pump. Freddy Garcia pitched 6.1 scoreless, Granderson hit his team-leading 26th homer, Eduardo Nunez drove in two insurances runs in the ninth, and Dave Robertson and Mariano Rivera handled the final six outs.
