Masahiro Tanaka will be taking the mound at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night in the hopes of repeating his dominant performance against the Chicago Cubs for the New York Yankees back in April at Yankee Stadium.
In that start, Tanaka threw eight stellar innings without allowing a run while surrendering just hits and striking out ten. It was easily one of his best outing of the 2014 campaign thus far.
In case you missed it or just want to enjoy the masterful pitcher that is Tanaka, here's a look back at that start versus the Cubs, per MLB.com:
Nothing has changed on Chicago's roster since April, so it's safe to say their nameless lineup isn't going to fare any better this time around.
Still, you can't predict baseball, per John Sterling, and there's not a chance on Earth Tanaka will take them lightly.
