MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Robinson Cano homered twice and Andy Pettitte broke Whitey Ford's club record for career strikeouts to help the New York Yankees snap a five-game skid with a 10-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night.

Zoilo Almonte had three hits and two RBIs as the slumbering Yankees offense woke up with seven runs in the last two innings to reach double digits for the first time since May 10.

Struggling reliever Jared Burton (1-6) gave up three runs and three hits while getting only one out for the Twins, who coughed up another eighth-inning lead. Ryan Doumit had two hits and two RBIs.

Cano also had a double, a walk and three RBIs for the Yankees, who totaled 13 runs during the losing streak.
