CC Sabathia seemed to get himself back on track yesterday. Today, it was Robinson Cano’s turn. The Yankees second baseman went 3-for-4 with a pair of home runs, lifting the Yankees an 11-6 win in their series opener against the Indians. The Yankees have now won back-to-back games, and a win tomorrow would give them a .500 record. Cano entered the game hitting just .130 with no home runs or RBI, but he walked in the first inning, doubled in the third, then homered in the fifth and sixth. Travis Hafner also had a home run and an RBI single in his return to Cleveland. Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda settled in after a three-run first inning. He went on to allow just one hit through the next four innings, pitching into the sixth for his first win of the season.
