New York Yankees: The Five Greatest Mother’s Day Performances

4. Robinson Cano Powers Yankees’ Offense- May 12, 2013

After the colossal failure in the Home Run Derby at Kauffman Stadium the year before, Robinson Cano got his redemption on Mother’s day in 2013.

In the top of the third inning, Cano’s two-run jack gave New York a two-run lead which would prove to be enough as they won the contest 4-2. Cano’s huge offensive production was done with a pink bat.

“You know what, when you’ve got that pink bat on Mother’s Day, it’s one of the biggest days in baseball,” Cano told Brian Hoch of MLB.com. “All you want is to go up there and just be able to use that bat the whole game.”
