Yankees 2, Athletics 1
NEW YORK — Masahiro Tanaka shut down the highest-scoring team in the majors and the Yankees ended a four-game skid. Tanaka gave up a home run to the second batter of the game, John Jaso, but left with an AL-leading 2.02 ERA. He twice escaped two-out, two-on jams. "There's an expectation when he goes out there that he's going to give you distance, he's going to shut them down," manager Joe Girardi said.
