Phil Hughes was the last starter named to the Yankees rotation this spring, and he’s the first starter to reach 10 wins this season. Two-run home runs by Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson made the difference today as the Yankees beat the Mets 5-3. Five runs was one more than the Yankees had scored in the past three games combined, and it was only the second time Mets starter Mike Pelfrey had allowed more than four runs all season. This time, the bullpen held it together, with Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera each pitching a scoreless inning.
