Phil Hughes gave up a home run to the second batter he faced tonight, but he didn’t allow another hit until the eighth in a dominant 8-1 Yankees win against the Twins. Hughes retired 14 in a row at one point, giving the Yankees a start reminiscent of his rain-shortened shutout in Chicago earlier this month. Russell Martin hit two home runs including a game-tying solo shot in the third. From there, the Yankees pulled away. Robinson Cano, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson each had RBI doubles. Derek Jeter raised his batting average to .292.
