Robinson Cano had two of the Yankees’ four home runs, and Hiroki Kuroda (5-6) gave up just one hit over seven innings in a 9-1 dismantling of the Mets on Friday night in the Bronx.

Cano had a pair of two-run blasts, including the front end of back-to-back-to-back homers in the third inning. After Cano gave the Yankees a 4-0 lead, Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones each took Johan Santana deep.

Fresh off throwing the team’s first franchise no-hitter, and riding consecutive complete game shutouts, Santana (3-3) was roughed up for six earned runs and seven hits in five innings.

Omar Quintanilla’s seventh inning single and Lucas Duda’s RBI-double in the ninth accounted for both Met-hits.

The Yanks (32-25) moved into a first place tie with Tampa Bay, 1/2 game up on Baltimore. They’ll throw Phil Hughes (5-5) against Dillion Gee (4-3) for the Mets.
