Tanaka goes 2 scoreless innings, Yanks blank Phils

Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Masahiro Tanaka pitched two shutout innings in his spring training debut, allowing two hits and striking out three as New York Yankees blanked the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 on Saturday.

The Japanese star entered in the fifth inning, following CC Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda. Some fans stood when Tanaka took the mound.

Both Sabathia and Kuroda threw two shutout innings.

Tanaka signed a $155 million, seven-year contract in January. He was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA last year while leading the Rakuten Golden Eagles to their first Japan Series title.

Tanaka features a sharp split-fingered fastball. He struck out All-Star Domonic Brown in the sixth.
