Yankees Use Cano Homer To Beat White Sox

Bartolo Colon shuts down White Sox, Yanks win 3-1

      NEW YORK (AP) – Bartolo Colon looked like the ace of old,
shutting down the Chicago White Sox over eight crisp innings, and
Robinson Cano hit an early three-run homer to give the New York
Yankees a 3-1 victory Wednesday night.
      A pleasant surprise for the Yankees thus far, Colon (2-1)
outpitched Mark Buehrle to give him two wins in two starts this
season – his first in the majors since 2009.
      The husky right-hander, who won the 2005 AL Cy Young Award for
the Angels, signed a minor league deal in February and was brought
to spring training to provide pitching depth. He had a strong camp
and made the team as a long reliever, but has quickly become an
April savior for a New York rotation missing injured All-Star Phil
Hughes.
