April 14th, 2008: New York Yankees 8 at Tampa Bay Rays 7 F -- Having set his head upon a pillow about the same time the orange sunrise crested above the Florida coastline, Robinson Cano was having trouble keeping his eyes open on the Yankees' bench as he witnessed a slugfest creeping into the late innings. His sleepy season opening may have had its wake-up call. Cano came through with an eighth-inning pinch-hit home run off Al Reyes on Monday, lifting the Yankees to an 8-7 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field, bailing out the bullpen after it relinquished a five-run lead. With just two hits in his last 18 at-bats, Cano was given a day off to clear his head, using his time to study left-handed swings in both uniforms and mentally tweak what he was doing incorrectly. Hitting coach Kevin Long stopped by with positive words, as always, but the best encouragement came as Cano connected and sent Reyes' 2-1 changeup sailing into the right-field seats.
