May 28, 2010 — Robinson Cano came to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning with the bases loaded, and with no outs.
The Yanks second baseman didn’t waist any time putting tonight’s game out of reach. Instead, Cano slammed a no-doubt, line-drive home run into the right-field seats.†
The blast was Cano’s 10th home run of the season — which, along with his .351 batting average and Gold Glove play at the the Keystone Corner — have clearly elevated him to the ranks of baseball’s most elite players.
Cano has come up with a ton of big hits this year, but tonight’s grand slam was his biggest thus far in 2010.
