Granderson leads off vs. lefty

Jim Leyland wanted to give Edgar Renteria a shot in the third spot with Carlos Guillen off, so Curtis Granderson gets to lead off against lefty Erik Bedard today.

Oh, and happy Fourth of July. Hopefully you’re somewhere with a chance to enjoy the holiday. Here in Seattle, the day game gives us a chance to catch the celebrations.
