Hughes done for the night

It’s not a real pretty line:

4.1 7 4 4 1 5 91 pitches/53 strikes

Couple of things: I thought he got squeezed at times. It also seemed like the umpire blew the call at first on John McDonald in the fifth inning and that cost him.

Michael Kay is singing his praises but putting eight guys on base in 4.1 innings is nothing special.

Hughes did OK and you have to figure that he will get better. But he belongs in AAA learning his craft, not giving up three hits to Vernon Wells.

Now the Yankees have to figure out A.J. Burnett, which won’t be easy.
