Hughes limited for all the wrong reasons

Phil Hughes had his shortest start of the season tonight. Good for his workload, perhaps, but not good for the Yankees. Walking five batters for the first time since his first start of the year, Hughes lasted just 3.2 innings in a 6-3 loss to the Blue Jays. Two-run home run by Marcus Thames and two-out RBI single by Eduardo Nunez scored the only Yankees runs, and the real Yankees bright spot was Javier Vazquez, who was bumped out of the rotation yesterday and allowed one run on two hits through the final 4.1 innings.
