Nady followed with an infield hit and Cano a double down the line, finally chasing Bannister after one of the worst starts of his career.
Bannister allowed 13 of the 16 batters he faced to reach safely, on 10 hits and three walks, and the 10 runs he yielded were a career high. His ERA in four starts against New York ballooned to 15.07, and he's allowed 30 hits and six homers in just 14 1-3 innings.
Rodriguez added a run-scoring single in the third, and Abreu and A-Rod each drove in runs in the seventh before Ransom's fourth career homer into the left-field seats.

Giambi's 14th career slam tied him with Gil Hodges, Mark McGwire and Mike Piazza for 14th on the career list. A-Rod is tied for eighth with 16. ... Yankees DH Hideki Matsui (left knee) took 15 at-bats in a simulated game and could be activated from the disabled list Tuesday. ...
