Five home runs and a classic outing by Andy Pettitte. The Yankees sure are looking like the Yankees again these days.

The Bombers won their third in a row, pummeling the Indians, 14-1, in front of a sparse crowd of 12,663 Tuesday night at Progressive Field.

“You get seven strong innings from Andy, you get contributions up and down the lineup, it’s fun to watch,” Joe Girardi said. “The last few days, we beat a very good pitcher in (Justin) Verlander (on Sunday), then to come in here and score a bunch of runs the next two nights, they’ve got to feel pretty good.”

The lineup that so many expected to struggle during the absences of Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez continued to thrive. The Yankees have scored 32 runs on 44 hits during their three-game winning streak, including 25 runs on 31 hits in their two wins in Cleveland to start this series.

“Guys are swinging the bats well, and putting together great at-bats,” said Kevin Youkilis, who hit one of the Yankees’ five homers. “I think we all had confidence within ourselves. And that’s probably been the biggest talk: no one’s had confidence in us.”

Robinson Cano (4-for-6) stayed hot, hitting his third home run in two games while driving in five runs. Ichiro Suzuki, Lyle Overbay and Brennan Boesch also went deep, while Brett Gardner had his best game of the season, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, three runs and two RBI.

“Tonight was a good night for everybody,” Gardner said. “It all starts with Andy on the mound, the way he pitches and controls the game. He makes it a lot of fun to play behind him.”
