Cano Carries Yankees Over Twins 7-3

[1]MINNEAPOLIS — Phil Hughes carved up a lineup for the second straight outing, and this time the New York Yankees actually gave him some run support to reward him for his efforts.

Hughes appears to be finding himself on the mound of late, and it couldn’t come at a better time for the Yankees with Hiroki Kuroda suddenly ailing.

Robinson Cano homered for the third straight game and Hughes gave up one run on six hits in seven innings, lifting the New York Yankees to a 7-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

Hughes (4-7) struck out three and walked two.

“You want to keep that ball rolling,” said Hughes, who gave up two runs in eight innings of a 2-0 loss to Kansas City last week. “Hopefully it’s the start of a good stretch I can roll off here.”

Kuroda left the Twin Cities to get an MRI on his left hip flexor. Manager Joe Girardi said the test came back clean, but Kuroda will miss his next scheduled start on Friday as a precaution. Ivan Nova will start in his place and Kuroda will be evaluated after that.
