Masahiro Tanaka held the hot hitting Athletics lineup to one run on five hits, including a home run, with one walk and four strikeouts over six innings in Thursday's victory.

Tanaka continues to rack up the wins as he moved his win/loss record to 9-1 with an AL league leading 2.02 ERA in 12 starts after Thursday's outing. Tanaka will go for his fourth consecutive victory on Tuesday in an interesting road matchup against the Mariners and fellow Japanese starter Hisashi Iwakuma.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
