With Freddy Garcia going on the disabled list, an impressive start by Phil Hughes would definitely be encouraging and a little more complicated for Joe Girardi, in a good way.
Phil Hughes did just that in an amazing way. Hughes went 7.2 innings and gave up just 2 hits, a solo home run in the 1st and a single in the 8th to end his night as his pitch count reached high numbers.
Russell Martin was swinging the big lumber in the 8-1 victory. The Yankees All-Star catcher hit 2 home runs, in the 3rd & 6th innings.
