Curtis Granderson continued his impressive power outburst, connecting on his ninth home run of the season in the Yankees loss to the Orioles on Tuesday.
Granderson finished the game 2-for-3 with the solo shot that accounted for all of the Yankees scoring on the night. While many skeptics and detractors claimed that Granderson’s power was likely to regress this season, he’s done his best to prove those doubters wrong. Even more impressive than the nine homers and 17 RBI on the season, is maintaining a respectable .276 average. He remains one of the most prolific offensive performers in the game, and should finally be getting all of the respect that he surely deserves.
