New York was trailing 4-3 in the eighth when it scored three times off reliever Jared Burton (1-6) to grab control, highlighted by Zoilo Almonte's go-ahead RBI single.

The Yanks added four more in the ninth en route to breaking a five-game losing streak.

Cano finished 3-for-4 with four runs scored while Almonte (3-for-5) and Chris Stewart each drove in a pair of runs.
