Masahiro Tanaka was brilliant Friday against the Rays, allowing just two hits over seven scoreless innings as part of a 4-1 win.

Tanaka gave up just two hits, both of them singles. He didn’t allow his first one until the fifth inning. He was very efficient, throwing 53 out of 82 pitches for strikes while walking none and striking out four. Tanaka had a pair of shaky outings earlier this month, but he has bounced back by allowing just one run in 14 innings over his last two starts. He’ll bring a 2.89 ERA into a start against the Blue Jays on the road next week.

Chris Archer surrendered four runs over eight innings in a loss to the Yankees on Friday.

Archer struck out seven and walked three. He put up zeroes over the first five innings, but the Yankees plated three innings in the sixth, the big blow of which was a two-run homer off the bat of Alex Rodriguez. Carlos Beltran added a solo shot in the eighth. While Archer took the loss, this was his longest outing of the season. He hadn’t gone more than six innings in his previous 10 starts. It’s a step in the right direction, but the first two months of the season haven’t gone according to plan. He’ll kick off June with a start against the Royals.

Aroldis Chapman notched two strikeouts in one-third of inning Friday against the Rays.

He was not credited with a save. Chapman entered the game after Kirby Yates gave up a solo homer with two out in the ninth. The game appeared to be over after Logan Morrison struck out swinging, but Brian McCann couldn't come up with the ball. Chapman then struck out Desmond Jennings to end the ballgame. He’s the first ever Yankee to finish with two strikeouts over one-third of an inning in a game. Chapman has plenty of strikeout records already, but this is by far the quirkiest.

Alex Rodriguez launched his first homer since coming off the disabled list in Friday’s win over the Rays.

It was a two-run blast off Chris Archer in the sixth inning. Rodriguez is now up to six home runs on the year and 693 for his career. He has played in back-to-back games since coming off the disabled list, but it will be interesting to see if Yankees manager Joe Girardi shuffles him out of the lineup to give Carlos Beltran more time out of the DH spot moving forward. Of course, A-Rod can change that conversation with his bat.
May 27 - 10:25 PM

Carlos Beltran connected for a solo homer against the Rays on Friday.

After going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts on Thursday against the Blue Jays, Beltran bounced back with his team-leading 11th home run of the season. Seven of them have come this month. The 39-year-old is now one hit shy of 2,500 for his career.
May 27 - 10:25 PM

Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday’s loss to the Yankees.

His ninth-inning blast against Kirby Yates was the only offense of the night for the Rays. Pearce has taken advantage of regular playing time this month by slugging seven home runs. He’s now batting .297/.388/.550 overall. His one-year, $4.75 million deal looks like one of the winter’s best bargains.
May 27 - 10:24 PM

Josh Donaldson blasted a pair of homers and drove in five runs on Friday, powering the Blue Jays to a 7-5 victory over the visiting Red Sox.

Donaldson got the scoring started in the first inning, swatting a solo homer off of Red Sox starter Joe Kelly. He gave them the lead again with an RBI double in the third inning and again in the fourth with an RBI single. After the Red Sox had tied the score at 5-5 in the top half of the eighth, Donaldson answered with an opposite-field two-run shot off of Koji Uehara to put the game away. He finished the night 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and five RBI and is now hitting .257/.353/.540 with 13 homers and 29 RBI on the season.
May 27 - 10:22 PM

Aaron Sanchez logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Red Sox on Friday, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits over his 6 2/3 innings of work.

The right-hander punched out six on the night while walking two. Sanchez departed in line for his fifth victory of the season, but the Jays bullpen was unable to hold on for him. He has been impressive through his first 10 starts, compiling a 3.29 ERA (3.25 xFIP), 1.20 WHIP and 58/23 K/BB ratio over 65 2/3 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column on Wednesday when he'll take on the Yankees at home.
