0

TAMPA: Masahiro Tanaka struck out three and surrendered two hits in two scoreless innings on Saturday in his pre-season debut for the New York Yankees in a 4-0 victory over Philadelphia. Wearing a black jersey with number 19 for his first Major League Baseball outing, the 25-year-old Japanese right-hander pitched the fifth and sixth innings in a relief role behind two other Yankee starters, C.C. Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda. Tanaka threw 31 pitches, four under the limit that was set for him in his first outing against opposing club batters, a game telecast live in Japan in the early morning hours.
