Player Notes
Masahiro Tanaka improved to 10-6 in Friday's win over the Braves, allowing three runs on five hits over seven innings.

Advice: After Tanaka's offense spotted him a 5-0 lead in the first inning, he allowed an RBI single by Freddie Freeman and a sacrifice fly by Nick Swisher in the bottom of the frame. The Yankees would score four more times in the second, though, and at that point the game might as well have been over. Tanaka struck out seven and walked one on the evening while improving to 10-6 with a 3.62 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. He'll head to Fenway for a Wednesday afternoon start against the Red Sox next time he toes the rubber.

Masahiro Tanaka fell to the Indians on Friday after giving up four runs (three earned) over six-plus innings.

Advice: He was pulled in the top of the seventh after giving up a leadoff single to Jose Ramirez, who eventually came around to score. All told, Tanaka allowed seven hits (including a solo homer to Carlos Santana) and one walk while striking out three. The 26-year-old has alternated wins and losses over his last six starts and now stands at 9-6 on the season. He'll bring a 3.61 ERA into another home start against the Astros next week.
