Tanaka Dominates, Homeruns Help

NEW YORK — Friday was somewhat of a nervous day for Yankee fans. With Masahiro Tanaka on the mound, the bombers looked to make it 5 straight in the win column. Tanaka, who had previously gotten shelled in past starts against Tampa, came out with a vengeance. Throwing 5.2 innings of perfect baseball and then lasting until the 8th allowing only 2 hits and 1 run. Tanaka looked like the ace the Yankees have desperately been in need of. Tallying 14 strikeouts in his best start this season. The offense did what the offense does best, score runs. With homers from Gardner (solo), Judge (solo), and Clint Frazier (3 run), the Yankees tacked on 6 runs, including a Didi Gregorius RBI. With a night headlined by Masahiro Tanaka’s dominance, and multiple homers in the Bronx, the Yankees took a 2-0 series lead over the Rays.
