Robinson Cano’s tear at plate continued Monday night in the Bronx as the Yankee second baseman homered and drove in three, and Hiroki Kuroda tossed a solid seven-plus innings for a 7-1 victory over the Indians.

After clubbing the game winning homer in the eighth Sunday night against the Mets, Cano smacked a two-run double in the first inning Monday and followed it up with a solo-shot in the third – his sixth homer in the last eight games.

Nick Swisher also homered for the second straight night while Dewayne Wise added a two-run homer and an RBI triple.

Kuroda (7-7) struck out seven while allowing three hits through seven innings. He has was pulled after back-to-back hits to start the eighth. Clay Repada finished the inning while only yielding a sac-fly, and Freddy Garcia worked a 1-2-3 ninth.

Cleveland’s Josh Tomlin (3-5) has touched up for six runs on six hits over three innings.

Since falling to .500 on May 21st, the Yankees have won 23 of their last 30 games to pull into first place at 44-28, three games ahead of Baltiimore.
