In his career, Phil Hughes has been worse at Fenway Park than at any other stadium in the big leagues. Tonight, he was at his very best. Hughes delivered 7.1 scoreless innings and pitched the Yankees to a 2-0 win that kept them tied with Baltimore at the top of the American League East. Derek Jeter pulled into a tie with Willie Mays for 10th on the all-time hits list with an RBI single in the seventh. Andruw Jones drove in the only other Yankees run with a sacrifice fly. Otherwise, the game was all about pitching, and Hughes lowered his ERA to 3.96 while striking out seven and walking one.
