Twins 2, Mariners 0: Phil Hughes out duels Chris Young in return to dominance

It was kind of like the game on Monday, except the exact opposite. Both Phil Hughes and Mariners' starter Chris Young had strong outings for their teams today, but it was Hughes, in a return to dominance, who won the duel. Young pitched a strong 7 innings, giving up only two earned runs, but Hughes pitched a stronger 7.1 innings, giving up no earned runs and no walks with eight strikeouts to earn his first win since June 22nd. Unlike last night, the Twins batters were able to back up Hughes's performance, mostly with help from power-hitting center fielder Sam Fuld. Fuld had a three hit...

Yankees 7, Twins 4: Hughes, Twins can't match up against the Yankees

Masahiro Tanaka and Phil Hughes matched up today, with the later being the ultimate *fart noise* against his former team. Phil Hughes gave up a season high seven runs tonight as all Twins Fans' dreams suddenly turned into a pumpkin. The first four of those runs were on homers by Carlos Beltran and Zelous Wheeler (talk about a freaking name).  Not fun. Unlike the 8 strong innings Hughes put up against the Yankees in June, Hughe gave up 7 runs on 8 hits and 1 walk through his 6.1 innings pitched. Yankee's ace and Japanese Super-Star Masahiro Tanaka wasn't masterful against the Twins either,...

That particular year he pitched out of the bullpen. Phil is going to have a lot of success. He’s been pitching extremely well here for Read more..

Tanaka vs. Hughes in Minny

Prior to Masahiro Tanaka, the young starter the New York Yankees had the highest hopes for was Phil Hughes. Phil Hughes #45 SPMinnesota Twins 2014 STATS GM16 W8 L4 BB10 K88 ERA3.58 Despite the outward hatred many Yankees fans seemed to have for Hughes, he did have his moments. He was the setup man on the 2009 championship team. In 2010, he was an All-Star as a starter. From there, it went downhill to a point that the Yankees let Hughes -- who just turned 28 -- leave without a fight.
