Tough day for Hughes

For the second consecutive start, Phil Hughes struggled with a high pitch count and failed to give the Yankees any length. After only surrendering two runs against the Rays last Sunday, the right-hander was hit much harder in a 7-1 loss to the Angels on Saturday. He couldn’t make it out of the fourth inning, pitching 3 1/3 innings while allowing eight hits and six earned runs on 84 pitches. He gave up two home runs and struck out six. Efficiency will be the topic of conversation for Hughes postgame, as will the inability of the middle of the Yankees order to come through with runners in scoring position.
