NEW YORK — Robinson Cano drove in a run and scored another in a most unwelcome return to Yankee Stadium, helping the Mariners beat New York 6-3 Tuesday night for their fourth win in five games.
Amid lusty boos from a modest crowd on a rainy, 46-degree night, Cano began his first game in the Bronx since joining Seattle this winter with a wink at Yankees starter CC Sabathia.
Cano got a mock cheer when he struck out to end the inning then was met with chants of "You sold out!" from the Bleacher Creatures when he took his spot at second base.
When Cano grounded out to first in the fourth, first baseman Mark Teixeira gave him a smile after the close play. The five-time All-Star was even booed when he cleanly handled a grounder.
Chris Young gave up a second-inning homer to Teixeira and not much else to earn his first win since 2012. Former Gator Mike Zunino had a career-high four hits.
