Brian McCann had an RBI single and New York scored all its runs in the first two innings on five hits after belting five homers in a 7-1 victory Saturday. Hiroki Kuroda (3-3) labored through six innings to help the Yankees improve to 8-0 in interleague home games against Pittsburgh.

David Robertson, the fourth Yankees reliever, got four outs for his eighth save.

New York will try for its third three-game sweep of the Pirates, along with 2005 and ’07, in the finale of the first traditional twinbill at Yankee Stadium since 2004. Pittsburgh’s Gerrit Cole faces Vidal Nuno in the second game.
