Facing an unlikely Cy Young contender, the Yankees offense went to work early and often tonight, beating the Athletics 11-5 to kick start a home stand that could provide an opportunity to finally break a tie atop the American League East. Trevor Cahill, second in the AL in ERA, allowed eight earned runs in four innings. Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano each had three hits off him — including back-to-back home runs — and it was Marcus Thames who went deep off the A’s bullpen for his sixth home run in as many games.
