Another Game in the Win Column

Phil Hughes lasted a career high eight innings last night, allowing only two runs on five hits. It was the first game all year when Hughes actually looked like a big league pitcher. Phil ins’t out of the woods yet but hopefully a fall season in the Arizona league will help him come around.

The Yankees had a lot of young guys in the lineup last night and the offense was mediocre at best. Things came alive a bit in the tenth inning when Bobby Abreau hit the game winning grand slam home run but ideally, it shouldn’t have to come down to the tenth inning.

At least the team is going out strong, safely in third place ahead of Toronto. It doesn’t take away the sting of not playing in the post season, but it leaves a little hope for next year.
