Even one of Phil Hughes’ best starts of the season wasn’t good enough for the Yankees to win. With limited offensive support, Hughes took his fourth loss in five starts as the Orioles beat the Yankees 7-1 at Yankee Stadium. Hughes set a season-high with 5.2 innings pitched and a season-low with four hits allowed. He struck out six and walked one, but the result was all too familiar. A solo homer in the second and a two-run shot in the third did all of the Orioles damage until Boone Logan replaced Hughes in the sixth inning and gave up two straight two-out hits before Eduardo Nunez misplayed a fly ball for a pair of unearned Orioles insurance runs. The Yankees only run came on Curtis Granderson’s ninth home run of the season.
