CLEVELAND (AP) -- Travis Hafner drove in four runs in his return to Cleveland and Robinson Cano homered twice as the injury-riddled New York Yankees wrecked the Indians' opener -- and manager Terry Francona's first home game -- with an 11-6 win Monday.
Hafner hit a three-run homer in the first inning off Ubaldo Jimenez (0-1) and added an RBI single in the third. Cano connected in the fifth and sixth for the Yankees, who are trying to hold on until All-Stars Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira get healthy and come off the disabled list.
Hiroki Kuroda (1-1) shook off a shaky, 34-pitch first and showed no signs of being bothered by a bruised right middle finger as the Yankees finally won a home opener after losing their own and Detroit's last week.
