Yanks don’t win 1-0 behind Hughes’ complete game


So what if the game only lasted 1.5 innings? This is what we’re talkin’ about with Hughes. He can shorten games.

Update: The Baseball Gods did not take kindly to my joke. The game is back on with Kei Igawa on the mound. The Yanks lead 2-0. For now.

Update: Scott Patterson goes 1, Kei Igawa goes 2 and Billy Traber goes 1 before rain ends the game. It’s a perfect game though. Yanks win 2-0.

    The baseball gods do not want Hughes to get his No-hitter/Perfect game. If it’s not a hamstring it’s rain.

  3. Ivan says:

    Interesting to hear where his velocity was and how his breaking ball was.

    I also like the fact that albeit it is ST and it is only one inning but he did get some ground balls.

    Howdy folks,
    The game is back on. The one catch is that it is Igawa time…

  5. J.R. says:

    Traber is looking like he might have been a steal. He did strike out the side for a save. Granted his carreer ERA isnt pretty, he does have a tremendous ceiling.
