Bronx Bombers Is Back: Cano Blasts One of Five HRs, Yankees Route Indians!

Robinson Cano

“In Detroit, I didn’t hit the ball out of the infield,” Cano said of the team’s previous stop. “I wasn’t making real good contact. … But it’s not about how I’m hitting right now. It’s about winning games.” – nypost

Mets Lose to Phillies


he Bronx Bombers is Back after Robinson Cano set off a blast and four other Yankees followed en route to a 14-1 win over the Cleveland Indians last night! Cano ended up going 4-for-6 with five RBI’s with two doubles and one homerun! I guess Cano is starting to adjust to the two spot after injuries to Grady, Jeter, Tex, and A-Rod put him there! The other Yankees that hit shots were Ichiro Suzuki, newbie Kevin Youkalis, Lyle Overbay, and Brennan Boesch! Andy Pettitte pitched well giving up four hits, one earned, three walks, while striking out four in seven innings pitched! The Yankees are now 4 up and 4 down! Read more after the jump…

Kevin Youkalis beaned Carrasco

After Cano continued his domination of Cleveland pitching by homering off starter Carlos Carrasco, the right-hander plunked Youkilis high on the shoulder, earning an ejection from home plate umpire Jordan Baker.

“It doesn’t look good,” Youkilis said. “After a home run was given up and a ball is thrown at your head.”

The Indians’ right-hander was just coming off a six-game suspension he received for hitting Kansas City’s Billy Butler in 2011.

“It’s not smart,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. – nypost

Ironically, the Indians starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco (pic above) was pitching for the first time since coming off a six-game suspension for beaning KC Billy Butler in 2011, and ended up being ejected for hitting Kevin Youkalis in the shoulder after Cano hit his blast!
