NEW YORK (AP) At the start of a tough week for his team, Masahiro Tanaka made things look easy on the mound against the Tampa Bay Rays again.

Tanaka pitched a career-best two-hitter with 10 strikeouts for his fourth major league shutout, and the New York Yankees beat Tampa Bay 3-0 on Monday night to increase their slim lead in the AL East.

"You could tell he could smell the finish line," Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. "Big-time performance to kick off this series for us."
