Yankees Power Past Mets in Subway Series Opener

Robinson Cano homered twice and hit one of three straight long balls off an ineffective Johan Santana to lead the New York Yankees to a 9-1 rout of the Mets on Friday night.

Hiroki Kuroda allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings before leaving with a bruised left foot. Cano ended Santana’s bid for a second straight no-hitter with a two-run shot in the second, then connected again in the third to begin a string of three consecutive home runs by the Yankees.

In the first Subway Series matchup of the season, Kuroda (5-6) gave up only a two-out double in the sixth to Omar Quintanilla.

Santana (3-3) was given two extra days of rest after throwing a career-high 134 pitches last Friday against St. Louis in the first no-hitter in Mets history.
