The Yankees are 70-29 in their last 99 home games. New York is 46-21 in Tanaka's last 67 home starts. 


Tanaka has been excellent this month, throwing 14 shutout innings in his last two starts and giving up only one earned run in 21 September innings. Look for him to continue that success tonight as he is typcailly strong at home and backed by a Yankees squad that wins way more often than it loses in the Bronx.
