Masahiro Tanaka struck out 10 over six innings to become the majors' first 11-game winner this season, while the New York Yankees continued their home dominance of the Toronto Blue Jays with a 3-1 victory that opened a key three-game series.

Tanaka (11-1) shook off a solo homer by Jose Reyes on the game's first pitch to shut down the Blue Jays over the remainder of his stint, with Brett Gardner putting the Japanese sensation in line for another win by drilling a two-run homer off Marcus Stroman in the third inning.

Toronto hitters fanned a total of 15 times on the evening en route to their 14th consecutive defeat at Yankee Stadium, the longest active streak by one team at a particular venue.

Derek Jeter and Kelly Johnson each had two hits and a run scored to help New York halt a two-game skid.

Stroman (3-2) allowed just two runs, but lasted only 3 2/3 innings while throwing 98 pitches.
