Robinson Cano was in the lineup, his right foot bruised but still better than it was Wednesday night in Seattle when he was hit on the right foot by Steve Delabar's 96-mph fastball in the 12th inning. After that game, the second baseman had X-rays -- they were negative -- and walked with a pronounced limp in the clubhouse.

"I asked him how he felt today and he said good," Girardi said. "That's the one thing I don't think people talk about, is Robbie's toughness. We've seen him hit plenty of times where we thought he wouldn't play the next day or even stay in the game and he does."
