Yankees Use Long Ball to Clobber Indians

Robinson Cano hit one of New York’s five homers and drove in five runs, Andy Pettitte pitched seven solid innings and the Yankees romped to a 14-1 win Tuesday night over the Cleveland Indians, who had starter Carlos Carrasco ejected from his first appearance since 2011.

The 40-year-old Pettitte (2-0) allowed one run and five hits in his second strong start.

Cano hit a two-run double in the second off Carrasco (0-1) and connected for his third homer in two days in the fourth.

Following Cano’s two-run shot, Carrasco, who just served a five-game suspension for throwing at a hitter in 2011, drilled Kevin Youkilis in the shoulder with a pitch and got tossed.

Youkilis and Brennan Boesch hit two-run homers and Ichiro Suzuki and Lyle Overbay had solo shots for the Yankees.
