Curtis Granderson becomes the 39th Yankee with 100 homers

Curtis Granderson came up as a pinch-hitter off the bench to hit his 35th homer and drive in five runs, and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 13-3 on yesterday to regain sole possession of first place in the division. Granderson ended up with three hits and five RBI and according to ESPN Stats, the last player to have 3+ hits and 5+ RBI in a game he did not start was Kelly Gruber of Toronto, on April 11, 1988.

The Grandy Man's 2012 homers

The home run for Granderson was his hundredth as a member of the Yankees (he had 102 for the Tigers), the 39th player to hit 100+ homers for the Yanks and it's a great list of players.

Not surprisingly, the Yankees have had the most 100+ hitters of any franchise.
