With no Mark Teixeira, no Alex Rodriguez and no extra-base hits, the Yankees played small ball tonight. They needed their pitching staff to do the bulk of the heavy lifting, and Phil Hughes delivered seven strong innings for a 2-1 win against the Blue Jays. Hughes struck out five and allowed four hits, lowering his ERA to 4.02 while picking up his 13th win. A solo home run by Adeiny Hechavarria — of all people — gave Toronto its only run. The Yankees scored their runs on a three singles in the third inning, and a sacrifice fly in the fourth. Dave Robertson and Rafael Soriano each pitched for a third straight day to close out the win.
