In the penultimate game of the 2014 season, the Yankees were hoping to get a look at Masahiro Tanaka before the offseason. Well, they got a look at him all right–he went 1.2 innings giving up seven runs in a 10-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Yankees didn’t get on the board until the seventh inning when Brendan Ryan hit a SAC Fly, scoring Jose Pirela. The Yankees added three runs in the eighth on a Chris Young RBI single and a two-run double by Stephen Drew, scoring both Chase Headley and Austin Romine.
Tanaka gave up seven runs on five hits while striking out two in his 1.2 innings of work. Preston Claiborne gave up two runs while retiring a batter, Bryan Mitchell gave up one run in four innings of work and Chase Whitley pitched two scoreless innings.
