Robinson Cano hit his fifth and sixth homers of the last month, both two-run shots, to power the Mariners to a 4-3 win over the Yankees on Saturday.
The homers were Cano’s first two at Yankee Stadium as a visitor. Including Friday’s 0-for-4, he had hit .225/.295/.350 with one homer in 10 games versus the Yankees since signing with the Mariners as a free agent after the 2013 season.
It was also Cano’s first multihomer game as a Mariner.
Cano has had a very difficult year while dealing with acid reflux problems, but he’s turned it around pretty nicely in the last month. After hitting just two homers through June 21, he’s hit six in the 21 games since. His batting average has jumped from .237 to .254 over the last month.
