Cano HR cuts it to 3-1
Can Robinson Cano spark the Yankees again?
Cano hit a solo homer in the bottom of the fifth -- his second of the series -- to cut the Tigers lead to 3-1.
Cano has nine RBI in the series, six of which came in Game 1. Prior to that, Detroit's Doug Fister had lulled the Yankees to sleep.
The Yankees have five hits through five innings off of Fister, but hadn't put anything of substance together prior to the Cano homer.
It was Cano's eighth career postseason homer and his fourth in the division series.
