Masahiro Tanaka tossed a four-hit complete game shutout Wednesday without allowing a walk and striking out eight Mets to move to 6-0 on the season.
Tanaka improved to 6-0 following Wednesday night's complete game shutout of the Mets as he continues to take the league by storm. He is now sporting a 2.17 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP through his first eight starts while averaging well over one strikeout per inning pitched (10.24 K/9). As long as he can keep limiting his walks (7 BB) while racking up the strikeouts (66 K) he will only get better as he gets more innings under his belt. The Yankee phenom will be on the hunt for win No. 7 when he takes on the Cubs next Tuesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Gary Neal will start Monday against the Clippers.
Neal will be starting in place of Kevin Martin, who is dealing with some sort of bug that has been going around. With the added minutes, Neal should be able to bring his nine point per game production up to more helpful levels, so give him a shot on Monday night, if you feel so inclined. Analysis: Dom Murtha
