AWARD WORTHY: The Yankees have beaten R.A. Dickey twice this season, with Dickey credited with the loss on both occasions. This marks the second straight year the Yankees have won multiple games started by a reigning Cy Young winner (beat the Tigers twice in 2012 in games started by Justin Verlander). It’s the first time the Yankees have given two losses to a reigning Cy Young winner since 2002 when Barry Zito went 1-2 against the Yankees in 2003.

The last time a reigning Cy Young winner was credited with more than two losses to the Yankees in the season following his award was 1960 when Early Wynn went 2-3 in seven starts with the White Sox against the Yankees. At that time, only one Cy Young Award was given out to honor the best pitcher in both leagues.

UPDATE, 7:35 p.m.: That leadoff single by Gardner set the stage for an early Yankees run, but the Yankees couldn’t repeat the process in the second inning. Still 1-0 for Hughes heading out for the second inning.

UPDATE, 8:11 p.m.: Leadoff walk hurt Hughes in the third inning, but he just got the leadoff man here in the fourth. He’s working with a deficit at this point.

UPDATE, 8:36 p.m.: Well that didn’t last long. Alex Rodriguez tied the game for a little while with a solo homer, but the Blue Jays are back in front after a ball off Ichiro’s glove and an RBI double. It’s 4-2.

UPDATE, 8:41 p.m.: Another night when Phil Hughes can’t get through five innings. Here’s David Huff to try to stop the bleeding and keep this game within striking distance.
