NEW YORK -- Once Masahiro Tanaka overcame that early jolt from Jose Reyes, the Japanese rookie did just fine. David Freese Jersey . Tanaka gave up a home run to Reyes on the first pitch of the game, then earned his major league-high 11th victory as the New York Yankees beat Toronto 3-1 Tuesday night for their 14th straight home win over the Blue Jays. That was the first time Tanaka could remember getting tagged so quickly and said it "threw me off my rhythm a little bit." "Overall, I think my stuff wasnt really there," he said through a translator. Even so, Tanaka (11-1) struck out 10 in six innings and left with an AL-best 1.99 ERA. The right-hander has made 14 starts this season -- hes gone at least six innings in every outing and never permitted more than three earned runs. "What hes done is remarkable," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He wins." Brett Gardner hit a two-run homer off the right-field foul pole and the Yankees sent the AL East leaders to their seventh loss in 10 games. Tanaka made his big league debut April 4 at Toronto and Melky Cabrera hit a leadoff home run on the third pitch. Reyes provided an even faster start with a drive into the lower deck in right, and slapped his hands as he rounded first. "I made up my mind before the game that I was going to swing at the first pitch," he said. "You dont want to face Tanaka with two strikes." Said Girardi: "He just threw a pitch right down the middle and up. Reyes knew what to do." "Reyes is familiar with this ballpark," he said. "He went to the short part of the park." Cabrera followed with a liner between Tanakas legs that knocked off the pitchers glove. But Tanaka scrambled to retrieve the ball behind the mound and threw out Cabrera, and never again allowed a runner past second. Tanaka gave up five hits and walked two in moving ahead of Torontos Mark Buehrle for the most wins in the majors. Buehrle starts Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium in the middle game of the three-game series. The Blue Jays were the second team to face Tanaka twice. He blanked the Chicago Cubs for eight innings in April before they handed him his only loss a month later. Dellin Betances worked two innings and David Robertson closed for his 17th save in 19 tries. New York pitchers combined for 15 strikeouts and became the latest staff to slow down the Blue Jays, limited to 24 runs in their last 11 games. Pitching about 50 miles from his Long Island hometown, Blue Jays rookie Marcus Stroman (3-2) threw 98 pitches in 3 2-3 innings on a sticky night. Gardner gave him a workout right away, grounding out in a 12-pitch at-bat to lead off the first. Kelly Johnson doubled in the third for the Yankees first hit and Gardner pulled a go-ahead home run. Derek Jeter opened the fifth with his second hit of the game and scored his 1,900th run on a single by Mark Teixeira. Jeter is 10th on the career runs list, 19 behind longtime teammate Alex Rodriguez. NOTES: After the game, Toronto reinstated OF Colby Rasmus (hamstring) from the disabled list and optioned OF Anthony Gose to Triple-A Buffalo. ... The Blue Jays drought at Yankee Stadium started in August 2012, and theyve dropped 23 of their last 25 in the Bronx. The team cited the Elias Sports Bureau in saying it matched the Yankees longest such winning streak against one opponent since 1961 -- they also won 14 straight home game vs. Kansas City from 2002-06. ... Tanaka has fanned at least 10 in five starts. ... Girardi became the sixth manager to win 600 games with the Yankees. ... Reyes hit his 20th career leadoff homer, and second this year. ...

The knuckleballer made an early exit Saturday in Baltimore because of groin tightness. ... Yankees 2B Brian Roberts started after missing two games with a bruised right knee. ... Yankees LHP CC Sabathia (knee) threw a bullpen session Sunday and is set for another one Tuesday. "No setbacks," he said. Sabathia had hoped to return by the All-Star break, but Girardi said theres no timeframe. ... There was a pregame moment of silence for Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, who died Monday.

Broad, who was not involved in Englands World Twenty20 squad, is expected to feature for Nottinghamshire when they open their Division One campaign at home to Surrey on Sunday.And he could be joined in the early fixtures by a number of his Test colleagues, including seamer James Anderson and captain Alastair Cook, with England not playing their first Test of the summer until May 19 against Sri Lanka. Its exciting, Broad told Sky Sports News HQ. Weve got a really big summer ahead as an England side. Weve got seven out of the nine Test trophies available to us, and the two we dont have are Sri Lanka and Pakistan, who we play this year.I think every player will want to hit the ground running. Weve got Yorkshire coming here to Trent Bridge [starting on May 1] which will be a fantastic game, full of international players. Im not sure bowling to Joe Root will be much fun but well see how we go.The start of the year is so important to counties to get up the table, try and win your first three or four games and make a really good start to your season. Australia bowler Jackson Bird will be Nottinghamshires overseas player in the early months of 2016 season Weve just had [Australiaa bowler] Jackson Bird arrive today. Joc Pederson Dodgers Jersey. Dont know if he is playing this week against Cambridge MCCU, but hell be ready to go for Sunday.We look like we should have a strong side and its our aim to hit the ground running, starting with Surrey.County cricket will see changes this season, doing away with mandatory coin tosses, with visiting sides getting the choice whether to bat first. Only if the visiting captain declines to bat will a toss take place.Its an interesting one, Broad added. A lot of the wickets I have played on in Division One have been really good. I think its maybe aimed a little more at Division Two where teams are trying to get out of the division, creating wickets that do a bit. Broad was one of Englands stars in the Test series win over South Africa A lot of the seamers who got wickets in Division Two last season were under 80mph which proves the wickets were doing too much.But I know from playing in the Ashes, winning the toss and bowling at Trent Bridge can be a good thing. It will be interesting to see what kind of wickets are prepared. Also See: County build-up LIVE! Somerset sign Jayawardene Glamorgan bring in Tait Yorkshire embracing pressure ' ' '
