Hughes looking a-o-Kei to me

The rehabbing Phil Hughes hit his stride today, pitching out of a bases loaded and nobody out situation in the 5th. Check out this post for more on Hughes’ start. Meanwhile the rest of the system didn’t knock down the fences tonight. Courtesy, yet again, of Alan Hirsch:

Philip Hughes 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K – Who’s going to drive Igawa to Scranton? (Ben’s note: He’ll hitchhike. The Yanks have already wasted enough on him.)

Trenton (Erie downs Trenton 12-1)
Only 4 hits by Trenton
