NEW YORK (WFAN) – Curtis Granderson, No. 14 in your program and the No. 1 Yankee on Thursday night, oh boy did he ever have a chance — actually, two — to slug his way into the record books.

Steve Somers began his broadcast in the bottom of the eighth, Granderson 4 for 4 with three home runs and due up for the fifth — and what would prove to be final — time.

On deck, the anticipation builds.

At bat, Granderson beat out an infield single for his fifth hit of the night. Alas, Lou Gehrig would remain the only Yankees player to ever hit four dingers in a game.

And then — picked off! What a bum, that Grandy Man!

Not really.

What a heck of a night, a grand night for Curtis.
