Phil Hughes is finished for the day. He went 6.1 innings for Double-A Trenton, allowing one run on three hits and two walks. He struck out eight.
For some updates from the scene, check our good friend Erik Boland’s twitter feed. Erik was in Trenton and reports that Hughes threw 88 pitches, 64 or strikes. He talked to one scout who said Hughes’ command was “much better.” Apparently Hughes was at 92 mph with his fastball, topping out at 94.
