McCarthy, Yankees rebound in 6-2 win over Royals

NEW YORK (AP) – Robinson Cano hit a three run homer, Lyle Overbay added a grand slam and the New York Yankees snapped out of their offensive funk with an 8-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals Wednesday night.

Ivan Nova delivered another impressive pitching performance and the Yankees, held to one run each of the previous three days, stopped a three game slide. They watched two more players get banged up, though, when slumping Travis Hafner and speedy Brett Gardner left with injuries.

Hafner came out with a bruised left foot, while Gardner departed with a bruised right leg after getting hit by a pitch for the second time. The team said X-rays on both were negative and they were day to day.

Nova (4-2) yielded only four singles and a double in eight innings for his second win in three solid starts. Cano and Overbay both connected off Wade Davis (4-8).
