Cano, Chaves Homer in Yanks' 4-2 Win over Chisox
NEW YORK (AP) -- Robinson Cano hit a tiebreaking two-run homer after wasting a chance with the bases loaded his first time up against Gavin Floyd, and the New York Yankees again rode the long ball to a 4-2 win Sunday over the Chicago White Sox for a series split between division leaders.

Eric Chavez connected for a two-run drive in the second inning, helping New York raise its major league-leading total to 124 home runs. The power surge helped make Phil Hughes a winner on the Yankees' 66th Old-Timers' Day.

Coming off eight scoreless innings in his previous start, Hughes (9-6) gave up two quick runs in the first inning. He then settled in nicely to limit the hard-hitting White Sox to just three more hits over his final seven innings.
