Hughes falters in series opener

For the Yankees, today’s 9-6 loss against the Red Sox extended beyond starting pitcher Phil Hughes. Mark Teixeira’s fifth-inning error proved costly, Boone Logan couldn’t handle the lefties he was brought in to face, and the Yankees offense went silent in the late innings. In a technical sense, that’s why a 6-6 tie turned into a Red Sox win, but the Yankees bigger problem was Hughes. Their No. 3 starter pitched only two innings and allowed six runs, a second straight sloppy outing for a starter who was supposed to be one of the few reliable pieces of the Yankees rotation.
