Nick Swisher added a homer in his return to the starting lineup,
helping the Yankees to a four-game split. The series began with a
freak, season-ending injury to All-Star closer Mariano Rivera, but
ended with the Yankees' best offensive output in a dozen games.
The Yankees already led on RBI singles by Raul Ibanez and Curtis
Granderson when Cano came to the plate with the bases loaded in the
third inning. He connected on a 2-1 pitch from Hochevar (2-3),
sending the ball over the wall in right field for his second homer
of the season.
Swisher added a solo shot two batters later, and A-Rod's homer
came in the eighth.
That was plenty of support for Phil Hughes (2-4), who went a
season-high 6 2-3 innings. It was only the second time the
right-hander had allowed fewer than four runs this season.
