NEW YORK (AP) - Masahiro Tanaka tamed the highest-scoring team in the majors and the New York Yankees stopped a four-game skid, beating Oakland 2-1 Thursday and ending the Athletics' five-game winning streak.
Facing the A's for the first time, Tanaka (9-1) got an early jolt when John Jaso homered as the second batter in the game. But that was the only run Tanaka allowed in six innings, and he left with an AL-leading 2.02 ERA.
David Robertson worked the ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances, helped by a lucky bounce.
