Kuroda, Cano help Yankees beat Twins 2-0

NEW YORK (AP) -- Hiroki Kuroda pitched five innings, the last after a long rain delay, Robinson Cano had another big hit against the Twins and the New York Yankees beat Minnesota for the fifth time in two weeks, 2-0 Friday night.

Brett Gardner and Cano had RBI singles in the fifth inning off the Twins bullpen after the Yankees had no success against Scott Diamond ahead of a 1-hour, 13-minute delay.

Boone Logan struck out the side in the seventh after relieving Preston Claiborne with two on. David Robertson was perfect in the eighth and Mariano Rivera finished off the eight-hitter for his 30th save.

New York was playing without captain Derek Jeter after he strained his right quadriceps in his first game this season on Thursday.
