Masahiro Tanaka pitched five innings, gave up four hits, three runs, and had two strikeouts with the game tied at 3-3 in the bottom of the 6th inning suspending the game vs. the Nationals.

Fantasy Impact:

Tanaka on the season is 4-2 with a 4.73 ERA with 47 strikeouts. The game was suspended after the top of the sixth inning until Wednesday due to weather, but Tanaka wouldn't have factored in the decision regardless after being pulled for a pinch hitter with the game tied at three. The 29-year-old certainly didn't look his best Tuesday, but allowed only four baserunners and threw 72 pitches. Tanaka has a 4.73 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 47 strikeouts over 51.1 innings, and is next slated to start at Kansas City on Sunday.
