Robinson Cano hit one of New York's five homers and drove in five runs, Andy Pettitte pitched seven solid innings and the Yankees romped to a 14-1 win Tuesday night over the Cleveland Indians, who had starter Carlos Carrasco ejected from his first appearance since 2011.
The 40-year-old Pettitte (2-0) allowed one run and five hits in his second strong start.
Cano hit a two-run double in the second off Carrasco (0-1) and connected for his third homer in two days in the fourth.
Following Cano's two-run shot, Carrasco, who just served a five-game suspension for throwing at a hitter in 2011, drilled Kevin Youkilis in the shoulder with a pitch and got tossed.
Youkilis and Brennan Boesch hit two-run homers and Ichiro Suzuki and Lyle Overbay had solo shots for the Yankees.

Not Exactly How I Planned To Start The Season
At 6:30 when I was on my way to Progressive Field for my first live Indians game of the season, I couldn’t be more excited. By 9:30 that night, however, when the Yankees were beating my beloved Tribe 14-1 and “Let’s go Yankees!” chants from the New York fans in attendance was nauseatingly audible above the normal chatter of the...
Monday was a very good day here for the Game Picks. The only two incorrect picks were (of course) the Cardinals, a team that blew a save in just about the most spectacular fashion you could imagine. Between Mitchell Boggs and Scrabble, the Cardinals allowed nine runs in the ninth inning. Nine. Amazing. The other incorrect pick was picking the Cubs to beat the Brewers. This game...
I am not one to panic. Especially with 150-plus games left on the schedule. The hot starts for the Tribe the last two years resulted in nothing. But obviously you would like to see the lesser parts of your team do well early to give them confidence as the season starts to build.
It was no secret that the weak link of the 2013 Cleveland Indians would be their starting rotation. All...
I can’t help but shake my head while sitting here during the opening home series here at Progressive Field.
The Cleveland Indians are 3-5 and two games out of first on April 10th, and to listen to the general populace that surround the Indians, you would think that the season ended yesterday after another 100-loss season.
Sure, things could be better. The pitching staff looks like...
