NEW YORK (AP)  – Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and the New York Yankees broke loose for 12 runs in the first inning Saturday night, setting a franchise record en route to a 17-3 rout of the Baltimore Orioles that completed a painfully embarrassing sweep of their split doubleheader.
Cano went 5 for 5 with five RBIs, a career high for hits, and Swisher smacked his second two-run homer of the day in the nightcap. Curtis Granderson added four hits for the Yankees, who roughed up both young pitching prospects called up from the minors to start for Baltimore.
New York opened a 15-0 lead after two innings, making it an easy night for Ivan Nova (9-4) in his return from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
