Cano, Burnett blast Birds

Robinson Cano hit two homers and A.J. Burnett shut the Orioles out for a 4-0 win to take the series.

Quick ‘Cap:
With three hits on the night, Cano became the AL batting leader (.407). Burnett was lights out through eight innings, allowing just four base runners and striking out four en route to his third victory of the year.

Marcus Thames also had a big night as DH in place of Nick Johnson, going 3-for-3 with an RBI and a walk. Derek Jeter added a two-hit night as well. Jorge Posada sat out and Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth to get some work. Yankees-Orioles box score.

It was a game the Yankees need to win, and they did.

Line of the Night:
Cano: 3-for-4, 2 HR, 3 R, 2 RBI. What more can you say? He’s easily the MVP of the team for April.

Up Next:
The Yankees finally return home this weekend to face the White Sox and then the Orioles again at home.
