It was his fifth leadoff homer of the season, which is tied with Minnesota's Brian Dozier for the major league lead. With a .247/.344/.429 batting line to go along with 14 home runs and 30 RBI, Granderson continues to be very productive out of the leadoff spot. The rest of the lineup? Well, that's still a problem.
Jul 17 - 11:54 PM

Both Curtis Granderson and Daniel Murphy are on the bench Saturday against Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin.

Granderson and Murphy, of course, are left-handed hitters. New York Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters that he has no compunction about sitting two of his best hitters at the same time. John Mayberry Jr. will start in right field for Granderson, while Eric Campbell is starting at third base for Murphy. "One of the things we've tried to do this week is make sure everybody has a blow," Collins said. "Curtis Granderson has played, I think, in every single game. He needs a day off. And the same with Murph. Murph needs a day off. And this guy can be really tough. We've got them if we need them, but we planned going into these three days to try to get some guys some rest. So, no, there wasn't any hesitancy on our part." Both veterans are available off the bench.

Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

Nobody on the Mets managed to do much of anything against a locked-in Jake Arrieta, but Granderson at least prevented the shutout. His double in the third inning would score starter Jacob deGrom. And that, as they say, was that. A recent hot streak has helped push the Grandyman's slash-line for the season to .254/.349/.436 with 13 homers and 28 RBI.
