When the votes are cast for the AL MVP, Curtis Granderson is going to receive a lot of them. Granderson added to his case with his 35th homer of the year Sunday, but it was unlike the previous 34 in that it was an inside the park homer. Granderson raced around the bases and beat the throw home to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead. Mark Teixeira followed with his 34th homer, a more standard over the wall variety to make it 3-0. That was all Ivan Nova needed as he pitched another good game, improving to 13-4 on the year. David Robertson worked into and out of trouble in the 8th and Mo set them down in order in the 9th to preserve the 3-0 win.
The Mets picked the wrong time to play the Brewers as they were swept by the hottest team in the league 6-2 on Sunday. Lucas Duda tied the game at 2 with a homer in the 7th, but the bullpen couldn't keep New York in the game.
