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
Nate Orchard (groin) is questionable for Monday's game against the Ravens.
Orchard has developed into a run-stuffing linebacker in the NFL, and will be missed if he cannot take the field in Week 12 against the Ravens, who will be looking to establish the run with Joe Flacco out of action. He has not built upon his sack abilities that he showcased in college at Utah, but the Browns are happy that he has developed into a run-stopper as their defense has been porous against running backs the past couple of seasons.
