Hughes flirts with no-hitter in Yankees win

Phil Hughes was positively dominant tonight. He struck out a career-high 10, walked two and allowed only an infield single through 7.1 nearly no-hit innings. The Yankees gave him a much-deserved 3-1 win, with a save for Mariano Rivera. It was the Yankees sixth straight win, and assured them a win of their first five series for the first time since 1926. Hughes lost the no-hitter when Eric Chavez chopped the ball back to the mound to lead off the eighth inning. It hit off Hughes, who couldn’t find the ball in time to make the play at first.
