Pre-Game Notes

  • Terry Collins will attempt to turn back the clock Sunday, batting the returning Curtis Granderson (left calf strain) leadoff for the first time this year. Early in his career with the Detroit TIgers, Granderson frequently bat leadoff and has his most at-bats as a pro in the leadoff position. Granderson holds a career .270 batting average with 92 homers, 269 RBI and 409 runs scored when batting first in the order.
