May 19 (Bloomberg) -- Robinson Cano blasted two home runs to lead the New York Yankees to a 7-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in a Major League Baseball game.

The Yankees (27-16) won their second straight game, extending their first-place lead to 1 ½ games over the Boston Red Sox in the American League East.

Brett Gardner singled home a run in the third inning last night, then scored on Cano’s first homer to give the team a 3-0 lead at Yankee Stadium.

Cano hit another two-run homer in the fifth and Travis Hafner hit one in the eighth inning.

Colby Rasmus drove in a run in the fourth inning and Edwin Encarnacion had a solo homer in the eighth for the Blue Jays (17-26), who are last in the AL East, 10 games behind the Yankees.

David Phelps (2-2) allowed one run on six hits and struck out eight in seven innings for the Yankees. Brandon Morrow (1-3) surrendered five runs on seven hits while striking out one in five innings.
