The second baseman had an RBI single in the first inning to start the scoring, and his two-run double in sixth opened the floodgates. Cano's .323 batting average is fourth-best in the American League among qualified hitters, and he's got an .824 OPS and 51 RBI for the surprising Mariners.

That's homers in back-to-back games for Cano. He has four in three weeks, all of them coming at home in Safeco. Despite the lack of early season power, it looks like Cano will win out as the AL's starting second baseman in the All-Star balloting. He hasn't been the best player in the strong field, but he's still the best bet of any of them going forward.

He's slashing .332/.381/.436 but is on pace to finish with just seven homers.
