DETROIT (AP) -Curtis Granderson hit his 20th home run on Friday night against the Seattle Mariners, making the Tigers outfielder only the sixth player in major league history with at least 20 home runs, 20 doubles and 20 triples in one season.
Granderson leads the majors with 21 triples and has 36 doubles.
The others to do it are George Brett in 1979, Willie Mays in 1957, Jeff Heath of the Cleveland Indians in 1941, Jim Bottomley of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1928, and Frank Schulte of the Chicago Cubs in 1911.
Granderson also has 19 stolen bases. If he gets No. 20, he'll join Mays and Schulte as the only players to have 20 in all four categories.
