The Yankees rode Masahiro Tanaka's shutout as they beat the Rays 3-0 at Yankee Stadium on Monday. >> Box score
Four takeaways from Monday's game
1) Tanaka has dominated the Rays this season, and Monday's complete-game shutout came at a perfect time. Tanaka allowed just two hits and a walk, while striking out 10 batters in what was his longest -- and by far his best -- outing of the season. As the Yankees' rotation has struggled for much of the last couple of weeks, Tanaka followed up James Paxton's solid effort and might slow down some of the doom and gloom thoughts about the current Yankees rotation.
