Not long ago, Curtis Granderson couldn’t hit lefties.

Now, he owns them.

Granderson drilled an 82 mph Chris Capuano slider into the right-field seats to give the Yanks a 5-3 lead in the sixth inning of Saturday’s Subway Series.

Granderson leads the majors with eight homers off of lefties. He’s hit them in an astounding 47 at-bats.

Overall, he has 15 homers and 33 RBI.

Alex Rodriguez followed with a drive just over the wall in left to put the Yanks up 6-3.

Pedro Beato came on in relief of Capuano.

The Yanks hit four homers off of Capuano on Saturday night. Russell Martin and Mark Teixeira each had two-run homers.
