by R.J. White |

Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano went 3 for 5 with an RBI in his team's 10-5 win over the Astros Friday.

If he can finish the season with his current .321 batting average or better, it'll represent his best mark since his second major-league season in 2006. Cano has hit .321/.387/.465 with 14 home runs, 78 RBI and a career-high 10 stolen bases in 564 at-bats.
