Masahiro Tanaka tossed eight scoreless innings and allowed just two hits with one walk and 10 strikeouts against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Tanaka was outstanding Wednesday and looked exactly like the pitcher everyone touted before they started railing him for signing with the Yankees. He stayed ahead in the count most of the day and threw a total of 107 pitches (76 strikes) to get through the eighth frames. The two hits he allowed were harmless bunt singles and he struck out 10 for the second consecutive outing. You can happily expect more of the same when he faces the Rays his next time out.
