Game one of a two game series with the Nationals. Today the Yankees have Tanaka taking the mound and are facing Gio Gonzalez. It is never good to look ahead, but with Scherzer looming tomorrow, their best chance at a win in this series is today. Here are the basic stats for today's pitchers: PLAYER W-L ERA SO WHIP IP H BB HR M. Tanaka 4-2 4.66 45 1.10 46.1 41 10 8 G. Gonzalez 4-2 2.22 50 1.34 44.2 41 19 1 Gio puts more men on base, Tanaka puts more balls in the seats. Or allows them to be put in the seats. I suspect we'll see both trends continue today.
