Orioles' Ramirez labors through five innings
Yefry Ramirez struck out six but served up a trio of solo home runs over five innings Tuesday, getting a win in the Orioles' 7-6 victory over the Red Sox. Ramirez yielded just four hits in his five frames, but three of them left the yard, as J.D. Martinez, Blake Swihart and Mookie Betts all took the right-hander deep. He needed 92 pitches to get through his five innings. Ramirez has pitched well enough to where he should get another turn Sunday versus the Rays.
Yankees' Tanaka delivers a three-hit shutout vs. Rays
Masahiro Tanaka pitched a three-hitter for his third career shutout Tuesday against the Rays. Tanaka struck out nine and walked one in the 105-pitch gem. Not only was it his first complete game of the year, but it was the first time in 16 starts that he had finished even seven innings. The nine strikeouts also matched his season high. He moved to 8-2 with a 4.09 ERA.
