Masahiro Tanaka improved to 5-0 after allowing just two runs on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over 6.1 innings against the Brewers on Friday.
Tanaka continues to take the league by storm in his first year with the Yankees after logging yet another quality start on Friday night. He is now sitting undefeated with a 2.57 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through his first seven starts, while holding down a 58:7 K:BB ratio. As long as he continues to display great command, there is no reason to think the Yankees rookie will slow down anytime soon. He will look for win No. 6 when he takes on the Mets on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Joaquin Benoit returned to the mound Sunday.
There is still no evidence of Benoit having a "Dead Arm" so the fact that he returned to the mound on Sunday is a good sign that he shouldn't need a trip to the DL. Benoit should remain the setup man for Kimbrel and will be next in line for saves if he is unavailable or injured. Analysis: Dom Murtha
