Cano's second homer makes it 7-1 Yanks in 5th

Maybe that headline says everything that needs to be said?

Already ahead 5-1 thanks to home runs from Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano, the Yankees went up 7-1 in the fifth when Cano homered again, this time against Red Sox reliefer Clayton Mortensen.

With a win, of course, the Yankees clinch another American League East flag, along with the top seed in the American League playoffs. With a win or an Orioles loss in Tampa Bay, that is. And midway through both games, it looks like the Yankees will get both.

Meanwhile, Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda was cruising, giving up just a first-inning run to the Red Sox.
