Cano, Hughes Stay Hot Against O's

Robinson Cano is hot! He's batting .360 and leads the Yankees in home runs and RBI. There's talk about him being the AL MVP! I have to agree, he's been that good this season.

Cano did it again Wednesday night as the Yanks beat the Orioles 9-1 at the Stadium. The Yanks are 18-3 against the Birds in their last 21 games. Cano had 3 hits, one was a long home run into the right centerfield bleachers, into the 2nd deck! Cano was the American League Player of the Week last week and he’s riding a 16-game hitting streak.

Phil Hughes is the other story. 7 innings, 7 strikeouts, and his 7 wins on the season now for Phil. He's been brillant for the Yanks as the no. 5 starter. He now is tied with Andy Pettitte for the team lead in wins.

The Yanks take the 1st 2 games against Baltimore, which is no surprise but what is how well Hughes and Cano have played this year. Not that we all didn't know the potential of both men but how quick they've turned into All-Stars. Hughes and Cano should make it to the Mid-Summer Classic next month but only time will tell. It's a joy to see Robbie hit. It seems as if every night he's getting 3 hits. As for Phil, well what can you say? He's been awesome. He's dominant, he's aggressive, he's got skills! Finally, he is the top tier starter the Yankees projected him out to be. Can't wait for his next outing.
