Robinson Cano scores four times

by Bill Chuck on July 2, 2013

It’s hard to find much positive to talk about when it comes to Yankee Universe these days, but last night Robinson Cano homered twice, went 3-4 with three RBI and scored all four times he reached base helping the Yankees top the Twins, 10-4.

It’s just the 18th game in which a player has scored four times in a game this season and the second time for Cano.
