Yankees make it seven straight

Phil Hughes continued his string of strong starts tonight, only this time he did it without allowing a home run. Hughes struck out nine through six innings, pitching the Yankees to a 7-2 win against the Nationals. It was the first time this season that Hughes pitched a game without allowing a homer. The Yankees first two runs came on back-to-back RBI singles by Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher in the third inning, and they broke the game open with a four-run seventh. For a while it seemed the Yankees might finally win a game without a home run, but Curtis Granderson hit his 20th of the season in the ninth inning.
