Having chipped away to tie it in the fourth, the Yankees broke away with a nine-run sixth inning in this afternoon’s series finale against the Tigers. Robinson Cano — who already had a hit and a run in the game — had two hits, two runs and three RBI in the onslaught sixth. It was enough for an 11-5 win that was the Yankees third straight. Phil Hughes got his 15th win and was lifted after just 84 pitches, presumably to limit his workload.
