Granderson, Nova Lead Yanks Past Padres

Saturday night’s 3-0 victory over San Diego was certainly a feel good win for the Yankees. New York’s bats were ice cold throughout much of the game, but their pitching was fantastic and their offensive hero was one they had sorely missed.

It was a seventh inning 2-run homer by Curtis Granderson that broke a 0-0 tie and put the Yankees ahead for good. The game was just Granderson’s 10th of the injury plagued season, and the home run was just his second. Curtis also scored the third run in the ninth, after benefiting off of a blown call at first base. The club certainly hopes that this outburst will help jump start Granderson’s bat for the stretch run.

As for the pitching, it was phenomenal. Ivan Nova delivered his fifth consecutive brilliant start, shutting the Padres down for seven innings. David Robertson delivered a strong eighth, and as always, Mariano Rivera secured the save.
