Masahiro Tanaka's interaction with the media after his start on the 22nd.
You made your first start at Fenway Park.
There is a lot of history at this stadium. It had a special feel to it.
On home runs you allowed to David Ortiz and Mike Napoli.
The pitches got too much of the plate. I'll learn from what happened since I'm sure I'll face them again at some point.
They are rivals and they won the World Series last year. Did you get fired up?
They have a great offense and the stadium is small, I did get a little fired up.
It seemed like you were throwing more fastballs than your previous starts. He hit 96 miles per hour.
I think I threw more four-seamers, but in terms of velocity, each stadium has different readings.
It looked like you were hitting your spots with the slider.
Sort of. I was able to get strikes and it was one of the pitches I built around.
