Hughes Struggles, Yankees lose
The offense could only do so much today. After Hughes gave up two runs in the second, the Yankees went to work and scored two runs to tie the game. However, Hughes gave up more runs and the offense was left stranded. Wells hit another home run today, his third of the season. Cano continues to be hot, while Ichiro Suzuki still looks lost at the plate. The way Hughes pitched made a 5-2 game look like a 10-2 game, so the offense struggled the rest of the way. They were able to put men on base but lacked a big hit. Overall, the offense has been good with picking each other up this season thus far, so I will not get on them for today's effort.
Tomorrow night, ESPN will broadcast their game of the week featuring the Yankees and Orioles. Hiroki Kuroda will try to put the Yankees back on winning ways against O's left hander Wei-Yin Chen.
