Five takeaways from Sunday's game
1) The long ball continues to plague Masahiro Tanaka, but the Yankees right-hander kept the damage to a minimum on Sunday. Tanaka allowed two solo home runs in the fifth inning, but other than that he pitched six strong innings, allowing just four hits and striking out five.
