Phil Hughes’ worst start since April kept the Yankees from finishing off a series sweep and left them with a 10-7 loss in today’s series finale in Toronto. Hughes allowed one run through the first three innings, but the game got out of hand quickly when the Blue Jays scored six runs in the fourth inning, five of them with two outs. All told, Hughes was charged with seven earned runs through four innings. It was his second straight rocky start. The Yankees did make a game of it by scoring three runs in the sixth and three more in the seventh. Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano both homered. Mark Teixeira, Jayson Nix and Casey McGehee each had RBI doubles.
