It's déjà vu all over again

Last night, Robinson Cano drove in Hideki Matsui with a single to left field to score the winning run in the ninth inning.

Tonight, with the Yankees already up 7-0, Cano hit a single almost to the exact spot to score Matsui.

Cano also hit a bloop double to left field earlier in tonight's game to give him a 2-4 evening. In total, his last three hits have gone to left field.

It's great to see him going to the opposite field, and maybe it's a sign that he's finally coming out of his early-season slump.

Since May 3, Cano is 20-60 (.333) with two home runs and 10 RBI.

A hot Cano deepens the lineup, as he adds power and (usually) average to the lower third of the order.

Last season, Cano was hitting .274 at the All-Star break. He hit .343 afterward. While his average wasn't nearly as low as it is now (.214), it does show that Cano is a slow starter. Hopefully his turnaround has started.
