New York Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson homered in his first three at-bats in Thursday's game against the Minnesota Twins.
Granderson clubbed a solo homer in the first inning, a two-run shot in the second and another solo blast in the fourth to give New York a 7-4 lead.
He singled in the sixth inning in his bid for his fourth consecutive home run.
It was the first three-homer game of Granderson's career and the first at the new Yankee Stadium. The last Yankee to hit three homers in a game was Alex Rodriguez in Kansas City on Aug. 14, 2010.
Granderson finished second in the American League with a career-high 41 homers last year.
