Hughes Struggles As Yankees Fall To Red Sox

If there is one thing that New York Yankee fans can count on, it’s that they cannot count on Phil Hughes. In typical Hughes fashion, the inconsistent starter followed up his stellar outing against the Mets with a stinker in the Bronx, as the Yanks fell to the Red Sox 11-1.

The third inning was where Boston did much of their damage, lighting Hughes up for five runs in the frame. A double to left by Mike Carp scored Jackie Bradley Junior to start the scoring, and a Mike Napoli grand slam after an intentional walk to Big Papi Ortiz took care of the rest. Hughes lasted only 4.1 innings before being spelled by the impressive Preston Claiborne, who navigated a scoreless 1.2 innings. In the top of the eighth Adam Warren surrendered a three run home run to Daniel Nava to seal the loss for the Bombers. The Sox continued to pad their lead in the ninth, tacking on three more.

Offensively, the Yankees were only able to muster one run on a sacrifice fly by Chris Stewart, which plated Jayson Nix. On a brighter note, slugger Mark Teixeira got his first hit of the year in the bottom of the first, after making his season debut on Friday night.
