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.

Joba Chamberlain (1-0) earned the decision with a scoreless seventh inning.

Chris Parmalee went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and Ryan Doumit got two RBI for Minnesota, which dropped the first of a four-game series.
