Tanaka (10-1) won his fourth straight start. He was two outs away from his second shutout before giving up a two-run homer to Robinson Cano in the ninth.

Tanaka allowed six hits and walked one. He tied for the wins lead with Toronto’s Mark Buehrle, who is 10-2.

New York’s Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 15 games with an RBI single in the third.

Two innings later, with Seattle starter Chris Young (5-4) struggling, Mark Teixeira hit a three-run homer that barely cleared the wall in right-center field. The game-breaking shot was Teixeira’s 11th homer of the season.
