Yankees Edge the Royals 3-2 to End a Three Game Skid

NEW YORK (AP) – Robinson Cano homered, Phil Hughes beat Kansas City for the second time this month and the New York Yankees – still looking to bust out with the bats – eked out a 3-2 victory over the Royals on Tuesday night. Derek Jeter delivered a bases-loaded single that tied the score in the fifth inning and New York rallied from an early two-run deficit to snap a three-game skid. Shut out Monday in the series opener, the Yankees (22-21) went 2 for 7 with runners in scoring position, one night after they finished 0 for 13 in those situations for their worst performance with RISP since 1990. Hughes (4-5) gave up five hits in six innings while striking out seven, beating Royals right-hander Luke Hochevar (3-5) for the second time in 17 days.
