Tanaka allows 2 hits over 7 innings as Yanks rout Rays 9-0

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Masahiro Tanaka allowed two hits over seven innings in his best start this season, Chris Young hit a grand slam and the New York Yankees routed the Tampa Bay Rays 9-0 Saturday night.

Tanaka (2-1) struck out eight and walked none. He gave up a single to David DeJesus leading off the first, then retired 15 in a row before Brandon Guyer's double opening the sixth. After failing to reach the sixth inning in his first two starts, Tanaka lowered his ERA from 7.00 to 3.94.

The Japanese star missed most of the second half of last season with a partially torn elbow ligament and had faced questions this spring about his decreased velocity.
