As the New York Yankees entered today’s game at Progressive Field, some fans were already starting to worry about Robinson Cano’s lack of production at the plate, just one week into the season. But today, Cano silenced his doubters for now by blasting a pair of homers, along with a double and four runs scored, as the Yankees blew out the Cleveland Indians 11-6.

Both teams would start off hot, each side scoring three runs in the first inning off starting pitchers Hiroki Kuroda and Ubaldo Jimenez. Kuroda would settle down and stop the bleeding, allow no other runs for the remainder of his 5 1/3 innings. However, things never really turned around for Jimenez of the Indians, who would finish with seven runs allowed in just 4 1/3 innings.

To go along with Cano’s explosive performance was tremendous stability in the middle of the order, as the Yankees’ 4-5-6 hitters (Travis Hafner, Vernon Wells and Ichiro Suzuki) combined to go 7-for-11 with a HR, five RBI and five runs scored. In fact, the only starters who went hit-less in the game were shortstop Eduardo Nunez and first baseman Lyle Overbay.

The Yankees are back in action tomorrow night in Cleveland, taking on the Indians at 7:05 p.m. Andy Pettitte will take the mound against Carlos Carrasco, with coverage beginning at 6:15 with the Coors Light Yankee Pregame Show with Mike Lindsley on 104.5 “The Team.”
