In his return to the Yankees rotation, Phil Hughes showed improved arm strength and fastball velocity, but he still took the loss in a 5-3 letdown against the Indians. Hughes allowed two runs in the first inning, then pitched four scoreless before the Yankees bullpen allowed three runs that proved crucial. The Yankees couldn’t do much against Indians starter Justin Masterson, but they scored three runs off the Indians in the ninth and might have made a game of it had their own bullpen not let them down.┬áThe Yankees lost this three-game series in Cleveland, ending their streak of seven straight series wins.
