Masahiro Tanaka worked into the eighth inning, pitching the surging New York Yankees to a 5-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday.

After a half-hour rain delay, Tanaka (13-4) had trouble putting batters away. He threw a 22-pitch first inning, starting with a 10-pitch strikeout, but got sharper. Tanaka finished with 10 strikeouts, five hits and a hit batsman and left to a standing ovation from the Yankee Stadium crowd of 33,460.
