Tonight’s game has been called because of rain. In the shortened game, Phil Hughes made his case, and it was compelling. With his rotation spot on the line, Hughes fired six shutout innings and showed his best fastball velocity of the year in a 6-0 Yankees win against the White Sox. Russell Martin and Mark Teixeira both homered — Teixeira twice — but it was Hughes who stole the show with a dominant outing that made a strong case that he belongs in the rotation, or at least deserves another start before making a change.
