Masahiro Tanaka became the first pitcher to reach 11 wins after he earned the victory over the Blue Jays Tuesday holding them to one run while striking out 10 over six innings.
Oh the irony, as Tanaka had a bit of de ja vu on Tuesday as he allowed a home run to the Jays first batter something he did in his MLB debut to start the season and just like his first career start Tanaka was lights out after that. The rookie has won each of his last five starts and with Tuesday's performance he lowered his AL leading ERA down to 1.99.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
