Kansas City, MO – Robinson Cano's three-run homer in the slugged the Royals, 7, at Kauffman Stadium.
They have taken five of their last six games, and all of those victories have at least one thing in common -- lots of offense. New York has totaled a minimum of six runs, and a combined 40 runs, in those five wins.
The Yankees did their damage Tuesday against Kansas City rookie starter Danny Duffy (3-7), who allowed a career-high eight runs in three-plus innings.
New York starter Ivan Nova (12-4) won his fifth consecutive start and his eighth consecutive decision despite allowing seven runs in 5 1/3 innings.
