Hughes steps up and the Yankees walk off

Last night, it was Alex Rodriguez who said the Yankees needed a starting pitcher to step up. Tonight Phil Hughes did exactly that, but it wasn’t until Juan Miranda drew a bases-loaded walk in the 10th inning that the Yankees had a 4-3 win that cut their magic number to one. They also pulled within a half game of the Rays in the American League East. A home run by Rodriguez and six strong innings from Hughes had the Yankees on the verge of a win before a wild ninth inning that saw them blow a lead, then come back to tie.
