NEW YORK (AP) — Robinson Cano drove in a run and scored another in a most unwelcome return to Yankee Stadium, helping the Seattle Mariners beat New York 6-3 Tuesday night for their fourth win in five games.

Amid lusty boos from a modest crowd on a rainy, 46-degree night, Cano began his first game in the Bronx since joining Seattle this winter for $240 million with a wink — at Yankees starter CC Sabathia (3-3).

Cano got a mock cheer when he struck out to end the inning then was met with chants of “You sold out!” from the Bleacher Creatures when he took his spot at second base.

Fernando Rodney gave up an RBI single to Brett Gardner in the ninth before striking out Derek Jeter and Carlos Beltran with two on base to preserve the win.
