Cano finishes off comeback win with 10th-inning homer

The Yankees trailed 6-2 heading into the ninth inning, but scored four runs off closer Jonathan Broxton to tie it. Then Robinson Cano cranked a two-run homer to left-center off lefty George Sherrill in the top of the 10th and Mariano Rivera completed his second inning of work to give the Yankees an 8-6 win.

Best of All: What a comeback win it was. They were down by as many as five runs but beat a normally good bullpen to take the series.

Alex Rodriguez hit a two-run homer in the sixth to break up Clayton Kershaw’s shutout. Derek Jeter had three hits and got on base four out of five times.

Worst of All: Brett Gardner left the game after being hit by a pitch in his first at-bat and is considered day-to-day.

Coming Up: The Yankees are off Monday before facing the Mariners and Blue Jays at home this week. One more week on the west coast road trip after that and we’ve hit the All-Star break!

Like always, the season always seems to fly by.
