Tanaka shuts down Jays as Yankees win 1-0

The swings and misses that Masahiro Tanaka’s reimagined arsenal had been generating all afternoon emboldened his manager to gamble, allowing the right-hander a chance to polish off the final three outs. It didn’t happen, but the Yankees remained thrilled with the right-hander’s performance.

Tanaka scattered three hits over eight-plus innings before Aroldis Chapman engaged in an epic 13-pitch battle with Vladimir Guerrero Jr., nailing down the save as the Yankees snapped their two-game slide with a 1-0 victory over the Blue Jays on Sunday at Rogers Centre.
