Tanaka Strikes Out 10 In Yankees' 3-0 Win Over Mariners

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka struck out ten over eight scoreless innings as New York (8-6) blanked the Chicago Cubs (4-9), 3-0, in the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old right-hander allowed just two hits, both bunt singles, en route to his second victory of the season.

Outfielder Carlos Beltran gave Tanaka an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning with a solo home run off of Cubs starter Jason Hammel.  The Bronx Bombers would tack on another run in the fourth on a Dean Anna sacrifice fly and one in the fifth on a Jacoby Ellsbury groundout, which scored Brett Gardner.

Hammel finished the day allowing five hits and three earned runs in seven innings of work.
