The season did not start well for New York Yankee star Robinson Cano but what a night he had last night.

The Dominican born second baseman was in a bad slump in the month of April, when he batted just .267, with one home run and four RBIs.  When the calendar changed so did he.

In the month of May, Cano now has hit safely in eight consecutive games.  Last night Cano hit a three run homerun against one of baseball’s best lefties, David Price.  Yesterday, game saw the Yankees win against the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3, thanks in great part to that three run homerun.

“I’ve really been feeling good all season,” said Cano to CBS Local.  “Earlier in the season, it’s all about luck, just hitting the ball right at people.  Tonight was a good night.”  Cano had been 7-for-34 (.206) in his career against Price. 

“It just really changes our lineup, because he’s so productive, and he’s dangerous any time he walks to the plate,” said manager Joe Girardi of Cano to CBS.  “We swung the bats extremely well against a very good pitcher tonight, and Robby was a big part of that.
