Curtis Granderson’s case for the MVP got even stronger tonight. The Yankees center fielder homered twice in an 8-3 Yankees win in the second game of a Baltimore doubleheader. Granderson now leads the Majors in home runs, runs and RBI. In between his two home runs, the Yankees hit three straight homers in the sixth inning. Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones went back-to-back-to-back, the first time the Yankees hit three in a row since 2009. Ivan Nova picked up his 14th win. He’s won seven straight starts, including every start since his return from Triple-A.
