Second baseman Robinson Canó does not lose the class and after being the key player in the All-Star Game, he started the second half of the season with the home run that marked the Seattle Mariners’ 4-2 win over the Chicago White Sox.
Cano (18) struck four corners in the third full-length episode between right and center yards leading two runners on the road.
The Spaniard, who homered in the tenth All-Star game on Tuesday to give the American League a 2-1 win and be named MVP, tonight responded to the Starter James Shields to connect from four corners.
Cano, 34, is batting for .413 (38 of 92) with six homers and 20 RBIs against Shields.
The win was credited by starter James Paxton (8-3) in six innings, took five hits, two runs and struck out nine.
The White Sox lost to Shields (2-2) in six innings, conceding seven hits, a home run and four runs.
