Andrew McCutchen was eager to get the announcement about his $51.5 million contract extension out of the way quickly Tuesday morning.

"I was looking forward to it being over so I could exhale," McCutchen said. "I signed and shook hands with the owner (Bob Nutting) and (general manager Neal) Huntington, then I was able to breathe and say, 'All right, let's go play the Yankees.' "

It was worth the wait. McCutchen singled, doubled and drove in two runs in a 7-2 rout.

In the first inning, McCutchen bounced a run-scoring single to left field off left-hander CC Sabathia. In the third, McCutchen doubled over the head of center fielder Dewayne Wise to score Clint Barmes from first base.
