Tanaka wins again as Yankees beat Brewers 5-3
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Masahiro Tanaka pitched into the seventh inning, Yangervis Solarte hit a three-run homer and the New York Yankees beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-3 on Friday night.
A fan jumped out of the left-field stands and walked briskly toward Derek Jeter’s spot at shortstop while the Brewers were batting in the sixth inning. Jeter didn’t appear to notice until the fan was within an arm’s length or so. Jeter calmly took a few steps away as several security guards rushed in to tackle the person.
Jeter has said he will retire after this season.
Tanaka (5-0) allowed two runs and seven hits in his first interleague game. The Japanese right-hander struck out seven and walked one.
Tanaka also struck out in each of his first three major league at-bats.
