Tanaka Suffers Only Second Loss
NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Tillman tossed seven innings of four-hit ball and the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 8-0 Sunday, handing Masahiro Tanaka his second major league loss.
Jonathan Schoop homered off Tanaka for the second time and fellow rookie Caleb Joseph capped the scoring with his first career homer. J.J. Hardy hit a three-run double for the Orioles, who spoiled Old-Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium and took two of three from their AL East rivals.
After squandering a ninth-inning lead in Friday night’s loss, Baltimore outhomered the Yankees 6-1 and outscored them 14-1 in the final two games of the series.
Tanaka (11-2) allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings, giving him a quality start all 15 times out this season. But the Yankees provided no support for the Japanese rookie, who entered with the most wins in the majors and the best ERA (1.99) in the American League.
