Masahiro Tanaka struggled against the Indians Tuesday as he allowed five runs on 10 hits and a walk with five strikeouts over 6.2 innings.

The Yankees ace had a rough night on Tuesday, setting career-highs in both hits (10) and runs scored (five) while falling to 12-4 on the season. Although there is very little to be worried about considering his first half performance, he has now allowed four or more runs in back-to-back starts, after going 16 starts without giving up more than three runs. The All-Star break could't have come at a better time for Tanaka, who will get one more start to turn things around before the midseason classic, but his 2.51 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 135:19 K:BB rate are certainly nothing to complain about up to this point. He will look to turn things around when he takes on the Twins on Sunday.
