Yankees Masahiro Tanaka First In Majors To Get 12 Wins

New York Yankees v Toronto Blue Jays

Masahiro Tanaka has become the first pitcher in the majors to record 12 wins, after the yankees defeated the Twins on Thursday 7-4.

It was a less than stellar night for the Japanese sensation. Tanaka gave up 4 earned runs and nine hits, he only struck out three batters. So ends his quality start streak at 16. The streak was the longest in the Majors since Steve Rogers with the Expos in 1973.

Better yet, for the Yankees, the win snapped a 5-game losing streak. Tanaka’s ERA sits just shy of Felix Hernandez’s at 2.27. Will we see him start in the All Star Game?
