Cano Returns To New York, Helps Mariners Beat Yankees
Robinson Cano drove in a run and scored another, helping the Seattle Mariners beat New York 6-3 Tuesday night for their fourth win in five games.
Cano began his first game in the Bronx since joining Seattle this winter for $240 million with a wink — at Yankees starter CC Sabathia.
Fernando Rodney gave up an RBI single to Brett Gardner in the ninth before striking out Derek Jeter and Carlos Beltran with two on base to preserve the win.
Meanwhile Cano has drawn loud boos in his first at-bat at Yankee Stadium since signing a $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners last winter.
Cano had a big smile when he came to bat in the first inning Tuesday night. The sparse crowd responded with a Bronx cheer.
The five-time All-Star gave a wink to New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia before settling into the batter's box. He struck out swinging and the fans mocked him with cheers.
When Cano took his position at second base, the Bleacher Creatures didn't chant his name, as they did for nine years. Instead, they shouted: "You sold out!"
