Robinson Cano hit a pair of homers, doubled, walked and scored four runs Monday in the Yankees’ 11-6 win over the Indians.
The game featured Travis Hafner hitting a three-run homer in his return to Cleveland.
Hiroki Kuroda, who left his last start with bruised fingers after getting hit in the hand by a comebacker, gave up three runs in the bottom of the first, but rebounded afterwards to pitch 4 1/3 scoreless innings.
For Cano, it was his 11th career multihomer game and first against an AL Central team. Four of the previous 10 were against Toronto, while three came against Boston. He scored four runs for just the second time. He first did so against the Orioles on April 9, 2009.
Cano entered the day 3-for-23 this season. He was without an RBI through six games.
