Derek Jeter went 4 for 6 with 2 home runs. Curtis Granderson went 3 for 4 with a home run. Mark Teixeira got 2 hits, including a two-run home run. None of these blasts were as big as the grand slam by catcher Francisco Cervelli.
The 5 home runs supported a grinding effort by CC Sabathia who struggled with a tight strike zone and fielding his position. The defense committed 4 errors, 2 of which were by the lefty.
