Tanaka (6-1) had been 34-0 in Japan and North America the last two seasons. He did drop Game 6 of the Japan Series last year before earning the save in Game 7. He hadn't lost a regular-season game since the Seibu Lions beat the Rakuten Golden Eagles on Aug. 19, 2012.

Jason Hammel (5-2) pitched solid ball into the sixth and Hector Rondon retired Jeter on a grounder with the bases loaded in the ninth to end it.
