Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka allowed three runs in five innings against the Nationals on Tuesday night before the game was suspended until Wednesday due to rain.
Tanaka allowed all three runs within the first two innings and went on to pitch three scoreless innings thereafter to allow the Yankees' offense to come back and tie the game in the top of the fifth.
Anthony Rendon took Tanaka deep in the bottom of the first inning to put Washington on the board with a solo home run. An inning later, Andrew Stevenson extended the Nationals' lead with an RBI Single before Pedro Severino drove in Giancarlo Stanton for the Nationals' third run.
Tanaka allowed four hits on the night and finished with two strikeouts and no walks.
Tanaka now has a 4.73 ERA after nine starts this season for the Yankees.
