Tanaka's unbeaten streak stopped by Cubs

CHICAGO — Masahiro Tanaka had his regular-season unbeaten streaked snapped at 42, allowing a career-high four runs in six innings, and the Chicago Cubs beat the New York Yankees 6-1 on Tuesday night.

The Cubs honored the retiring Derek Jeter before the game, then handed Tanaka his first loss in nine major league starts.

Tanaka (6-1) had been 34-0 in Japan and North America the last two seasons. He did drop Game 6 of the Japan Series last year before earning the save in Game 7. He hadn't lost a regular-season game since the Seibu Lions beat the Rakuten Golden Eagles on Aug. 19, 2012.

Jason Hammel (5-2) pitched solid ball into the sixth and Hector Rondon retired Jeter on a grounder with the bases loaded in the ninth to end it.
