Even Phil Hughes never had a start this short this season. Freddy Garcia lasted just an inning and two-thirds tonight, putting the Yankees in a early hole on their way to a 6-4 loss to the Red Sox. The two teams moved into a tie for first place in the American League East. By the middle of the second inning, the Yankees starter was already out of the game, their first baseman had been helped off the field and the Red Sox were leading 4-1. Hector Noesi pitched six strong innings of relief, and the Yankees actually out-hit the Red Sox, but that early hole stood as the difference.
