Curtis Granderson Hits Three Home Runs In Three At-Bats Thursday Night

Curtis Granderson put himself on the cusp of history Thursday night, hitting three home runs in his first three plate appearances against the Minnesota Twins. The feat is a rare one indeed. Only 27 New York Yankees players, including Granderson, have ever hit three homers in a game. Just one, Lou Gehrig, has ever hit four.

You can check out the third dinger here, courtesy of MLB.com. Unfortunately, on his next at-bat he only hit a single. The game is now in the top of the seventh, with the Yankees leading 7-6. Should New York keep up its torrent pace at the plate, Granderson could get another shot at history.

The Yankees have 10 hits as a team on the night, eight of them coming off of Twins starter Anthony Swarzak.
