CLEVELAND — Robinson Cano hit one of New York’s five homers and drove in five runs, Andy Pettitte pitched seven solid innings and the Yankees romped to a 14-1 win Tuesday night over the Cleveland Indians, who had starter Carlos Carrasco ejected from his first appearance since 2011.


The 40-year-old Pettitte (2-0) allowed one run and five hits in his second strong start.


Cano hit a two-run double in the second off Carrasco (0-1) and connected for his third homer in two days in the fourth.


Following Cano’s two-run shot, Carrasco, who just served a five-game suspension for throwing at a hitter in 2011, drilled Kevin Youkilis in the shoulder with a pitch and got tossed.


Youkilis and Brennan Boesch hit two-run homers and Ichiro Suzuki and Lyle Overbay had solo shots for the Yankees.


Tigers 7, Blue Jays 3


DETROIT — AL MVP Miguel Cabrera hit his first homer of the season and drove in four runs, leading the Detroit Tigers over the Toronto Blue Jays.


Cabrera, coming off his Triple Crown season, had four hits and scored three times.


Torii Hunter had three hits, including the 2,000th of his career, and Alex Avila homered.


Anibal Sanchez (1-0) struck out eight in seven innings. Brandon Morrow (0-1) took the loss.


Rangers 6, Rays 1


ARLINGTON, Texas — Nick Tepesch pitched into the eighth inning in his major league debut, Lance Berkman had a key two-run single among three hits and the Texas Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays.


Tepesch retired 12 straight batters before hesitating to pick up a slow roller from Kelly Johnson that went for a one-out single in the eighth. The 24-year-old right-hander left to a standing ovation after Desmond Jennings followed with his second double of the game.


Royals 7, Twins 4


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jeremy Guthrie won his career-best seventh straight decision, dating to last season, and Alcides Escobar had three hits and an RBI as the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins.
