Cano Leads Yankees Past Toronto in Game 1
Robinson Cano hit his 200th homer among four hits and drove in four runs, Chris Stewart hit a go-ahead three-run drive, and the Yankees rallied to hand the Toronto Blue Jays their record 10th straight loss in New York, 8-4 Tuesday in the opener of a split doubleheader.
Cano was a triple shy of the cycle on a perfect day at the plate. He hit a three-run homer off Esmil Rogers in the third to pull New York within a run and added a RBI double in the seventh. Ichiro Suzuki singled and doubled, leaving him one shy of 4,000 combined hits during his careers in Japan and the major leagues.
New York’s Ivan Nova (7-4) was tagged for four runs in the second inning when Toronto batted around in the makeup of a rained-out game on May 19.
