Will Robinson Cano be a New York Yankee next year? This is uncertain. However, while he’s in pinstripes, he’s going to continue to hit career milestones. In game one of today’s doubleheader, Cano hit home run #200 for his career which helped bring the Yankees back into the game. A home run from an unlikely source helped them win the game 8-4.
The Blue Jays jumped out to a big early lead off Ivan Nova but putting up a four spot in the second inning. Adam Lind led off with a single and Brett Lawrie was hit by a pitch. Maicer Izturis singled to make it 1-0. A passed ball moved the runners to second and third. Kevin Pillar‘s single brought home Lawrie. Jose Reyes singled and Rajai Davis‘ double made it 4-0.
The game stayed that way until the sixth. Alex Rodriguez led off with a single. Three batters later, Jayson Nix walked. Chris Stewart than followed with his fourth homer of the season, his first since May 15.
The Yankees would add to it in the seventh. Ichiro singled and Cano doubled him home. In the eighth, Nix singled and stole second. Thad Weber‘s errant pickoff attempt let Nix move to third, and he would score on Gardner’s sac fly.
