IN CLOSING: The Yankees are 24-14 in series finales… have won five of their last eight finales at home… are 8-5 in the rubber game of a three-game series this season.

GRANDISHING: CF Curtis Granderson has homered in consecutive games for the eighth time this season… ranks fourth in the Majors in home runs, three behind Adam Dunn’s ML-leading total (35)… eight of his last 11HR have come at Yankee Stadium (20 overall)… has hit 11HR off LHP… has a Major League-high 27HR off left-handed pitching since the start of 2011 (with play remaining today).
ð Has 4H combined in the first 2G of this series after collecting 4H total over his previous 11 games (4-for-36).

SEEKING 12: Should Hiroki Kuroda earn a win tonight, it would give the Yankees three pitchers each with at least 12 wins (also Hughes and Sabathia) prior to Sept 1 for the first time since 2006 when Chien-Ming Wang, Randy Johnson and Mike Mussina accomplished the feat.
