Remember when people wanted to bench Curtis Granderson?

Here's the abbreviated list of Major League home-run leaders over the last two seasons:

1. Curtis Granderson (84)

Hey, I told you it was abbreviated. Entering Game 5, though, Granderson hadn't hit any home runs, in fact had just one hit (a single) in 17 at-bats. In the third inning of Game 5, he made it 1 for 18.

In the fifth, though, he made it 2 for 19 with a ringing line-drive single. And in the seventh, he did this:

Yankshr2

That blast made the score 3-0. And with CC Sabathia doing his best Justin Verlander impression, time is definitely running out on the Orioles' chances.
